Global leader in comfortable oral appliances
At SomnoMed®, we have the most comfortable oral appliances that your patients will love to wear every night. We are committed to working with Dentists to build their practices.
The quality of your patient’s sleep has a dramatic impact on their health, well-being and overall quality of life. Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea increases the risk of severe health problems. Across the country, many dentists are discovering the ability to change their patient’s lives with SomnoDent® oral devices to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Are you ready to give your patient’s better sleep?
Why is a sleep dentist required?
- To ensure that the patients’ dentition can support an oral appliance.
- To take an accurate IOS scan or impressions so we can make the best fitting appliance for each patient.
- To teach the patient how to titrate the appliance and how to care for it.
- To follow up with patients as their dentition or OSA changes.
We’re here to help.
- Help your patients get treated for OSA. Help you provide your patients with the best technology in dental sleep medicine.
- Help you grow your Dental Sleep Medicine practice.

The Effectiveness Equation™
The Effectiveness Equation™ is a tool we developed to compare Oral Appliance Therapy and CPAP and promote the published clinical literature on oral appliances.
The premise of the Effectiveness Equation™ is that both compliance and efficacy should be considered in the treatment of OSA. CPAP is a very efficacious treatment, but only when it is worn, with many patients wearing their masks for only 4 hours a night. Oral appliances are not as efficacious, but their adherence is generally much better, with most patients wearing their oral appliances for the whole night’s sleep. Over the whole night, CPAP and OAT may be equally effective at reducing apnea events in mild and moderate OSA sufferers.
We invite our dentist partners to share the Effectiveness Equation™ with the Medical professionals that work with them and discuss the relative benefits of both OSA treatments. For an introduction to the Effectiveness Equation™, contact us here.

Find out what they went through and how it feels to wear a SomnoDent® oral appliance.
“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.”
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!
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.
“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.”
