We feel privileged to assist our patients who endure sleep loss, work and health concerns, and even relationship issues because of snoring, a problem some people still consider amusing. Believe us, it is no laughing matter. That is why we are proud to offer our patients SomnoDent MAS a clinically proven, leading-edge treatment.
While snoring does not appear to be life-threatening, it puts you at risk for obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder involves involuntary cessation of breathing-sometimes as often as 20-60 or more times per hour throughout the night. Sufferes are at risk for life-threatening occurrences which include irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.
Apnea occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the nose or mouth. At one time the only recommended treatment for mild to moderate apnea was a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Device (CPAP). Many find it difficult and claustrophobic to wear the headgear which includes a mask, straps and pads, tubing, and a chinstrap. The device itself can be weighty, quite awkward, and is not easily portable.
Today we can offer our patients pocket-size relief that has been clinically proven to work. The SomnoDent MAS custom-fitted oral appliance is light, comfortable, and allows patients to open and close their mouths and even drink while wearing it. Not only that, but after a good night’s sleep night after night, sufferers greet the day rested, with energy to spare, and with smiles on their faces!
