When is it worn?
The SomnoMed MAS™ is only worn at night. The SomnoMed MAS™ is unique in that, unlike other oral appliances, it allows you to close your lips, so no one need know 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.
Is there a warranty?
Yes. The SomnoMed MAS™ offers a one year warranty against breakage and manufacturing defects, which means you can have full confidence in the product.
What if I have a bridge or denture?
Patients with dental crowns or bridges can be successfully fitted with the SomnoMed MAS™. Adjustments are made in the appliance to ensure that fragile crowns and bridges are not harmed. Patients with partial dentures may be successfully fitted with the SomnoMed MAS™ as long as there are enough teeth to anchor the device. Ask your dentist if you are dentally appropriate for the SomnoMed MAS™.
What will the dentist do?
Dr. Konig 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 device. Dental impressions are required to fabricate a SomnoMed MAS™. They are taken, and sent to our laboratory where the appliance is made. Once custom made for you, the appliance will be inserted by a Dentist who will show you how to insert and remove it yourself, as well as how to clean and care for it.
How effective is the SomnoMed MAS™?
One of the major advances offered by the SomnoMed MAS™ is improved patient compliance. The ability to freely open the mouth, speak, and drink with the device fitted, is a big step forward in this type of medical treatment.
