When it comes to anti snoring solutions, one size does not fit all. With this in mind we offer a wide range of appliances.
When it comes to getting a good nights sleep it’s important that we feel comfortable and the prospect of having to wear something in the mouth to prevent snoring is often not an appealing thought. This is why we offer a variety of appliances which all work in the same way but with different design aspects. All our appliances use a dual laminate as a base, then we work forwards from that.
In essence when we are trying to help reduce, or in some cases stop, snoring we need to prevent the lower jaw from falling back and reducing/restricting the airway, which in turn creates snoring. So we are trying to hold the lower jaw in a forward position pretty much in the same way as you would pull the jaw forward when giving mouth to mouth as in resuscitation.
For the attention of clinicians:
In the construction of these appliances we would like you to use a bite fork for articulation. We recommend and accept forks such as “George Gauge” or the “Bite Fix”. Both of these are available from Eurodontic Ltd. Our devices are available in clear, blue or pink.
If there is a suspicion that the patient has Sleep Apnoea, they should be referred to a sleep clinic / ENT department for assessment before a device is made.
