The SomnoMed MAS™ is a Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS) that treats snoring and mild to moderate OSA by moving the lower jaw forward slightly. This forward movement tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstruction of the airway while you sleep. The tightening created by the device also prevents the tissues of the upper airway from vibrating as air passes over them – the most common cause of loud snoring.

The SomnoMed MAS™ is a custom-made device, consisting of upper and lower dental plates with a unique patented fin-coupling component, which allows normal mouth opening and closing. The device is adjustable which improves the efficacy and comfort level of treatment, as the jaw is moved only as far as is required to alleviate the condition. The SomnoMed MAS™ design has a number of key features that are significant improvements on existing MAS oral appliances. These improvements make the device both comfortable and effective.
The SomnoMed MAS™ is a highly effective solution, for the majority of patients, to the problem of loud snoring and mild to moderate OSA. Its exceptional levels of patient acceptance and compliance, and treatment efficacy are backed by a large body of clinical research.
