Q What is the SomnoDent® MAS?
The SomnoDent® MAS is a custom made medical device, designed to hold your lower jaw (mandible) forward while you sleep. This tightens the muscles of the upper airway to allow easier breathing. The SomnoDent® MAS is a type of oral appliance, a mandibular advancement splint, comprised of upper and lower dental plates with a unique patented fin coupling component, which allows normal mouth opening and closing. The device titrates easily to achieve comfortable usage. The SomnoDent® design has a number of key features which represent quantum improvements on existing MAS devices. These improvements make the device both more comfortable and effective. SomnoDent® is now recognized globally by an expanding group of sleep dentists as the MAS Gold Standard. It is used for the treatment of simple snoring, as well as obstructive sleep apnea.
