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 a Dentist who will show you how to insert and remove it yourself, as well as how to clean and care for it.
