Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder where the person is woken up from sleep due to the
inability to breathe. This is caused due to the collapse of the roof of the throat, which blocks
the respiratory tract.
SomnoDent is a device which is used to increase the upper airway volume. It also reduces the
collapsibility of the tissues in the throat. It is custom made for each patient and utilizes a
unique fin coupling component. It is pretty comfortable to wear and doesn't cause any
What are the health benefits of SomnoDent?
What's more beneficial is the fact that the reduction in blood pressure was more apparent
during the early morning. In most cases, acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) usually
happens during this time. Hence, it also reduces the risk of a heart attack as well.
Has SomnoDent been clinically proven?
Of course! 14 independent studies have been conducted on the SomnoDent over a span of 12
years. All these studies have given great results regarding the efficacy of the device.
Statistically speaking, a compliance level of 88%, a treatment efficacy of 91% and a patient
acceptance of 96% has been observed. Such high numbers suggest that the SomnoDent is a
proven solution to reduce the effect of sleep apnea.
A randomized multi-center trial with 108 patients was conducted in 2011. The trial concluded
that both CPAP and SomnoDent have similar health benefits when it comes to moderate-
severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
The SomnoDent Flex
This device is made of a material called the SMH BFlex, which is very unique. It has a soft
inner liner, which makes wearing the device very comfortable. It also maintains good
retention and prevents the device from getting displaced. Maintaining retention is essential as
the device would prevent the collapsing of the roof of the throat.
The SomnoDent Flex would offer a perfect fit, even if the teeth are too short or too long, if
there are crowns and bridges installed, etc. The procedure required to install the device is less
time-consuming. The adjustments wouldn't require much chair time. Feedbacks from our
previous patients show that 96% of patients who are suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea
would want to continue using SomnoDent.
