This method is named after the mandible or jaw bone and refers to the effect of moving the jaw slightly forward which results in a greater separation of the vibrating elements in the throats of snorers. You can discover more about the merits and potential downside issues of this type of device here on our Mandibular Advancement Devices research page.
Best alternative to CPAP
Obstructive / Sleep Apnea
The apnea, the respiratory arrest during sleep:
Sleep apnea is, at a certain level of severity, a serious disease that may cause not only sleepiness during the day but also serious systemic diseases.
The apnea is a total respiratory stop. The obstructive apnea is a complete occlusion of the respiratory tract whereas in case of the central apnea the central respiratory reflex arrests. The hypopnea is a reduction of the respiratory flow by more than 50%.
An obstructive apnea is characterized by an interruption of the very noisy snoring (rhonchopathy).
The central apnea, however, has no external signs.
Intense sweating during the night, frequent nocturnal urination and a dry mouth can be indications for an Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and an Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS).
The effectiveness of Somnium®
The Somnium® consists of one splint for the upper jaw and one for the lower jaw. The lower jaw is either held in a predetermined position or advanced by 2 connectors that are fixed laterally to the splint. The Somnium® thus counteracts the narrowing of the respiratory tracts. The velocity of the inspired air decreases and so do noise-generating vibrations of soft tissues. With the Somnium jaw movements are possible but no falling back of the lower jaw. With this function the Somnium® is a comfortable and at the same time effective snoreguard.
