Frequently Asked Questions about the SomnoDent MAS:
When is it worn?
The SomnoDent MAS is only worn when you sleep. The SomnoDent MAS is very discrete, allowing you to close your lips so it is not obvious you are wearing it.
Is it comfortable?
You won't find a more comfortable MAS. Why? Because it is custom-made to fit your mouth and it does not impinge on your tongue. You can open and close your mouth normally as the SomnoDent MAS does not lock or fix your jaws together.
Is there a warranty?
Yes. The SomnoDent MAS offers a one year warranty against manufacturing defects, which means you can have full confidence in the product.
What if I have a bridge or denture?
Patients with dentures may be successfully fitted with the SomnoDent MAS, as long as there are sufficient teeth on the lower arch for optimal retention. Your dentist will be able to address this with you. SomnoDent MAS may be fitted over dental implants.
What will the dentist do?
The dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth and may use X-rays to confirm your oral health status, as well as ensuring that you are dentally appropriate for the splint. Dental impressions are required to fabricate a SomnoDent MAS. They are then sent to our laboratory where the appliance is made. Once custom made for you, the appliance will be fitted by Dr. Bigelow who will show you how to insert and remove it yourself, as well as how to clean and care for it.
