Description SomnoGuard® AP 2 oral appliance
Suitable for: Neutral bite patients, those with medium to larger jaw size and bruxists (Note: Somnoguard® AP 2 is not a classic bruxism splint, however).
SomnoGuard® AP 2 (further development of our successful SomnoGuard® AP appliance) is a two-piece, infinitely adjustable oral appliance to treat snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (nocturnal breathing stops) in adults. The oral appliance is inserted into the mouth at night and causes a slight advancement of the lower jaw and tongue and thus the opening of the respiratory tract. This reduces or prevents the vibration and fluttering of the soft tissue (soft palate and uvula) and the typical snoring noise.
- Made in Germany
- Easy and fast fitting
- Infinite adjustability of the lower jaw advancement from 0 to approx. 10 mm
- Lateral movement of the lower jaw and mouth breathing possible
- Effectiveness proven by clinical studies
- Further development compared to SomnoGuard® AP: less material increases wearing comfort, smaller vertical bite opening, more stability due to thicker screw, scale for better control of the lower jaw advancementy
SomnoGuard® AP 2 consists of a biocompatible thermoplastic material that softens when heated in a hot water bath. By biting into the material, the material can be formed according to the individual tooth and jaw formation (comparable with a tooth impression). By turning the screw made of stainless steel, the lower jaw advancement can be adjusted from 0 to approx. 10 mm. The plastic used is medically harmless and contains no allergens; no latex; no silicone; no plasticizers (such as BPA).
To achieve an optimal therapeutic result it is recommended that SomnoGuard® AP 2 is fitted by a physician (e.g., dentist, ENT physician, physician in the sleep laboratory) or their trained medical staff.
A small storage case is supplied and makes the SomnoGuard® AP 2 a practical travelling companion. For the gentle care of our protrusion splints, we recommend the care series from Curaprox (also available in the online shop).
