SomnoDent – Coronado, CA
Designed for a Better Night’s Sleep
All oral sleep appliances have a common basic goal. They are designed to gently reposition the jaw at night, thus facilitating easier breathing and helping patients find freedom from obstructive sleep apnea. However, not all oral appliances offer the same level of quality and ease of use. Here at Advanced Dentistry of Coronado, we believe SomnoDent appliances from SomnoMed are some of the best on the market. Continue reading this page to learn more about these remarkable little devices.
Why Use a SomnoDent Appliance?
The dentists at our practice would never recommend a product to patients unless they truly believed in its quality and effectiveness. Some of the reasons why they believe in SomnoDent appliances include:
- The products are backed by years of medical research
- Every device is custom-designed based on a patient’s unique mouth
- They have FDA approval
- Their smart design makes adjustments quick and easy
- They feature a SMH BFlex lining that is both comfortable and odor-resistant
Types of SomnoDent Appliances
SomnoMed produces several SomnoDent sleep appliances. The company’s standard line has features like a morning repositioner that can help to strengthen your facial muscles and train your jaw to rest in the proper place after you wear your appliance all night. The signature line has appliances with a unique drop-in fit and extra space for the tongue, which makes them as comfortable as possible.
The type of appliance that is best for you will depend on your unique circumstances. After your evaluation, your dentist will recommend a SomnoDent product that fits your situation.
Caring for a SomnoDent Appliance
The lining of SomnoDent appliances helps to prevent odors. However, proper hygiene remains as important as ever. You should gently clean your appliance each morning with liquid soap and warm water (not hot water). You may also choose to purchase SomTabs, a special cleaning product from SomnoMed, to keep your appliance as fresh, clean, and functional as possible.
Does Insurance Cover SomnoDent Appliances?
Most dental insurance policies do not cover sleep apnea therapy. However, your medical policy might apply to your SomnoDent appliance. Our team will be happy to help you navigate your coverage and figure out how you may be able to use it to reduce your out of pocket costs for your sleep apnea treatment.
