What is SomnoGuard® 3 anti snoring mouthpiece?
SomnoGuard® 3 is a one-piece anti snoring mouthpiece, also known as oral appliance or mandibular advancement device. It serves the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).
How does SomnoGuard® 3 work?
Insert SomnoGuard® 3 in your mouth at night. The anti snoring mouthpiece ensures a slight advancement of the lower jaw and tongue opening the upper respiratory tract. This reduces the vibration and fluttering of the soft tissues (soft palate and uvula), which are responsible for the typical snoring noise. Snoring and breathing stops are reduced or at best even prevented.

For whom is SomnoGuard® 3 suitable?
The SomnoGuard® 3 anti snoring mouthpiece is suitable for patients with every jaw size. However, the model requires a well-functioning nasal breathing and a complete dental status.
Fitting SomnoGuard® 3
The monoblock mandibular advancement device is made of a biocompatible, thermoplastic material. The material becomes soft and mouldable after heating it in a boiling water bath. By biting into the plastic material, it forms according to the teeth and jaw formation (comparable to a dental impression).
Hint: To achieve an optimal therapeutic result, we recommend that the oral appliance is fitted by a physician. E.g. a dentist, ENT physician, physician in the sleep laboratory or their trained medical staff.
The material used does not contain any allergens, no latex, no silicone and no plasticizers (such as BPA).
We supply a small storage case which makes SomnoGuard® 3 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.
Do you grind your teeth at night or do you have strong jaw movements? Then our more robust SomnoGuard® AP 2 mandibular advancement device is the right choice for you.
