Description SomnoGuard® SP Hard oral appliance
Recommendes for: Patients having a smaller to medium jaw size, a retrognathic or deep bite.
SomnoGuard® SP Hard is a two-part incrementally adjustable mandibular advancement device to treat snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (breathing stops at night). The appliance is worn at night in the mouth and 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.
- Made in Germany
- Easy and fast fitting
- Incremental advancement of the lower jaw from approx. -3 to +10 mm
- Mouth breathing and opening possible
- No use of metal components
- Hard thermoplastic impression material ensures excellent tooth retention
SomnoGuard® SP Hard is made of a biocompatible, thermoplastic material which softens when heated in a boiling water bath. By biting into the material, it can be formed according to the individual tooth and jaw formation creating dental impressions. By means of two connectors, which connect the upper and lower jaw trays laterally with each other, the lower jaw can be moved forward from - 3 to approx. +10 mm. The plastic material used does not contain any allergens; no latex; no silicone; no plasticizers (such as BPA).
To achieve an optimal therapeutic result it is recommended that SomnoGuard® Hard 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 SomnoGuard® SP Hard a practical travelling companion. For the gentle care of our protrusion splints, we recommend the care series from Curaprox (also available in our online shop).
