The comfortable alternative to CPAP

Have you decided that CPAP is not for you?
A SomnoDent® Avant may be the answer.

How SomnoMed®
oral appliances treat sleep apnea

Snoring and sleep apnea can be caused by the airway at the back of your throat narrowing while you sleep. Oral appliances, like our SomnoDent® Avant, move your jaw and tongue forward while you sleep to open up your airway and treat your sleep apnea.

Leading the world in oral appliance treatment for sleep apnea

SomnoMed® is the world’s largest supplier of oral sleep apnea devices, operating in 28 countries. Since 2004, we’ve helped more than 625,000 patients have a comfortable night’s sleep while effectively treating their sleep apnea. We’ll make your device to the same medical device quality standards that are used for pacemakers to make sure your device is comfortable for your first night – and every night’s sleep.

Our most comfortable oral appliance yet

Compared with wearing a CPAP mask, wearing a SomnoDent® Avant is comfort on a completely different scale. You’ll feel this from the moment you place it in your mouth, and it glides onto your teeth, gently cradling and supporting each tooth. Find out how our proprietary Bflex soft inner liner provides unparalleled comfort and support for your teeth.

Every patient is different and we have helped individual patients on their journey in finding a solution.

Patient stories

Derek’s story

“Before I found my sleep dentist I was sleeping with my CPAP device. This posed several problems for me. Most are the obvious: wearing the CPAP mask, trying to sleep with a hose attached to your face, having to travel with it, and then my allergy issues became more severe.

Maintenance is a pain as well. My SomnoDent® device has allowed me to enjoy life a bit more without the hassle of a CPAP. And, there is the added benefit of not having to make sure I have a source of power available. Which means, I can go camping again! I would recommend the SomnoDent® device to anyone with obstructive sleep apnea. It is life changing.”

Izy’s story

For years I fought with my CPAP, I literally tried 15 masks and I will never ever go back to CPAP after discovering SomnoDent®. I love it and so does my family because they can finally sleep in peace.

I can carry it, no more lugging around that extra CPAP baggage, I just throw my SomnoDent® device and case in my backpack and keep going. I truly am a big fan and if I can encourage others to switch to SomnoMed®, I know for a fact their quality of life would improve tremendously. Here’s another thing, I had a problem with grinding my teeth at night, not anymore!

Mandy & Al Mermelftein's story

Borris’ story

Although a bit reticent at first in the use of this tool, once I began using it and finding out how good a night’s sleep I could have after so many years of bad nights and untold other alternatives which always proved useless, I am now happy to let you know that thanks to SomnoMed® I am able to sleep very well and also that my wife can now enjoy a good night’s sleep without my racket at night.

Susan’s story

“With a household to manage, motherhood, night school for advanced degrees, and two jobs – good sleep seemed an unattainable goal. Over the years of sleep deprivation, my health steadily declined with resultant hypertension, chronic sinusitis, and eventually atrial fibrillation.

I had a sleep study that showed moderate obstructive sleep apnea. A second study to fit a CPAP mask was a dismal failure – 14 different masks and nothing fit.

My dentist suggested a SomnoDent® and my life has turned around since I received it.  My husband is delighted that I no longer snore. I’m off my blood pressure medications. I truly feel like a new person with much more energy. I can’t thank you folks enough for my SomnoDent®. I’m convinced it has literally saved my life.”
