What is SomnoGuard® SP Hard anti snoring mouth guard?
SomnoGuard® SP Hard is a two-part, incrementally adjustable anti snoring mouth guard to treat snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (breathing stops at night). It is also called mandibular advancement device or anti snoring mouth piece.
For whom is SomnoGuard® SP Hard suitable?
SomnoGuard® SP Hard is suitable for patients with a small to medium jaw size, a retrognathic or deep bite.
How does the anti snoring mouth guard work?
You wear SomnoGuard® SP Hard in the mouth at night. The anti snoring mouth piece moves the lower jaw and tongue slightly forward. This prevents the airways from being blocked during sleep. Opening the respiratory tract can reduce or at best even prevent snoring and breathing stops.

How to fit SomnoGuard® SP Hard?
SomnoGuard® SP Hard is made of a biocompatible, thermoplastic material. The material softens when heated in a boiling water bath. By biting into the material, it forms according to the individual tooth and jaw formation creating dental impressions. Two connectors, which connect the upper and lower jaw trays laterally with each other, move the lower jaw forward from - 3 to approx. +10 mm.
Hint:To achieve an optimal therapeutic result, we recommend that SomnoGuard® SP Hard is fitted by a physician. E.g. a dentist, ENT physician, physician in the sleep laboratory or their trained medical staff.
The plastic material used is medically harmless. It does not contain any allergens, no latex, no silicone and no plasticizers (such as BPA).
We supply a small storage case which and makes SomnoGuard® SP Hard a practical travelling companion. For the gentle care of our SomnoGuard® mouth splints, we recommend the Curaprox Care Set. Alternatively, Curaprox daily and Curaprox weekly are also available separately.
