The SomnoDent MAS is a very unique Australian-designed sleep apnea dental appliance. A number of very stringent, evidenced-based studies have put the SomnoDent MAS through a rigid series of tests. Trial after trial has proven this exceptional mouth guard to be a safe, effective, and comfortable alternative to CPAP treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This is due to several design features, advantages, and benefits which enable this sleep apnea dental appliance to overcome many of the problems with using traditional mouth guards.
The SomnoDent MAS is a very streamlined oral appliance. Its minimal bulk allows it to maximize the size of the lingual space. People with a strong gag reflex find the SomnoDent the only device of its kind that they can comfortably wear.
Another advantage to using the SomnoDent sleep apnea dental device is that it will fits both the upper and lower arches of the jaw equally. It is designed to make both anterior and posterior contact with key portions of the mouth. This makes for more stable occlusion and better prevents tooth movement.
The SomnoDent is designed to minimize tempero-mandibular joint discomfort which can be caused by more generic night guards, and it has been shown to be remarkably effective in minimizing bruxism.
The MAS sleep apnea dental device is actually made from two separate pieces. This construction lets people open and close their mouths. People can even yawn, speak clearly while wearing their night guard, and night to drink water or juice without having to remove their oral appliance.
Of all these benefits, people routinely report that they are most grateful for their ability to communicate freely without impediment.
Some night guards often have some sort of piece attached to them that holds them to the front teeth. This makes it difficult for some people to sleep, and it also causes some people to salivate unnaturally.
This is never a problem with the SomnoDent MAS sleep apnea dental device. It does not require an anterior retainer of any kind due to the way it seamlessly fits into both the upper and lower arches. It so closely fits the shape of both jaws that patients can sleep with their mouths closed without distraction or discomfort. This eliminates excess salivation, dry mouth, dribbling, and the many other side effects commonly caused by less sophisticated oral appliances.
The excellent fit that the SomnoDent MAS provides an exceptional level of retention. It is very uncommon for this device to ever fall out of a persons mouth. This sleep apnea dental device is also very easy to titrate, clean, and disinfect. While it is a very tough little device, should it become damaged for any reason, its acrylic construction allows it to be easily repaired.
Adjusting the device is also easy, because it is made to fit each the optimal protrusion position of each and every patient in order to find which setting provides the most effective and comfortable treatment.
The Cosmetic Dentistry Center of Houston has made it a point to make the SomnoDent MAS a key offering to patients who suffer from sleep apnea and who require a dental device that can provide them with a safe, effective, and comfortable alternative to CPAP treatment. This truly is a state-of-the-art oral appliance and the MAS GOLD STANDARD among all oral devices.
