When Dr. Brian Zulawinski decides that a patient is a good candidate for oral appliance therapy, he’ll use a device made by a company called SomnoMed. The oral appliance itself is called a SomnoDent Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance, or SomnoDent for short. SomnoDent devices are premium, custom-made mouthguards that are both comfortable and ingenious when it comes to treating sleep apnea. By just wearing it to bed every night, a patient will see a drastic reduction in their sleep apnea symptoms, and therefore a dramatic increase in their sleep quality.
At the store or on the internet, you will see that there are plenty of sleep apnea appliances that you can buy right now. With all of these oral appliances, you simply get what you pay for: cheap, ineffective, and uncomfortable.
Because these devices are made to fit a wide range of people, they are often unsuitable for many, causing irritation to the gums, lips, and cheeks. Plus, the wrong fit will often prevent them from actually helping a person’s sleep apnea, and in some cases, it may actually make it worse!
To get the best when it comes to quality, comfort, and results, you should always use a professionally made oral appliance such as a SomnoDent.
With the help of Dr. Zulawinski and a custom-made SomnoDent oral appliance, you can get relief from your sleep apnea and start feeling great in the morning again. If you’d like to know more about SomnoDent devices and oral appliance therapy in general, please contact our office today.
