Have you ever been asleep and your spouse pats you not so gently on the arm and says, “Honey, you are snoring, AGAIN! You would be surprised to know that this is the most common sleep disturbance, along with its big brother, Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
The good news is that we can help you achieve a better night’s sleep with a device called the Somnomed MAS (Mandibular Advancement Splint). This device is a custom-made, two component mouth appliance that is made to gently position your lower jaw forward just enough to open your airway so you have no air obstruction that could cause snoring. It is adjustable so you can advance its position forward in just the perfect place to have the maximum effect and comfort! Our patients have commented on how comfortable the splint is to wear. But the best comments come from the ones who were having to use ear plugs and now don’t!
If you have been diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, and you have been unable to use a CPAP machine and mask successfully, the Somnodmed appliance is a wonderful alternative to consider. Untreated sleep apnea is very dangerous to your overall health. For more information click on this link, www.somnomed.com/patients, to hear some amazing success stories.
