Sleep Disorder Treatments

SomnoMed is an oral appliance that is capable of treating patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea disorder. It is the world's leading oral appliance for Sleep Apnea treatment. SomnoMed is known to have treated 40,000 patients worldwide. The dentist in Santa Clara, CA, Dr. Aida Galan now uses SomnoMed, a highly efficient product, to enhance the results of treating her patients who suffer from mild to moderate levels of sleep apnea.

How do patients develop Sleep Apnea?

Patients develop the sleep disorder as the upper airway path to the lungs get obstructed. The causes of sleep apnea are mainly obesity, the structural difference in the anatomy of the mouth, nasal malfunctions, etc. As patients develop sleep apnea, they will begin to experience interrupted sleep patterns preventing them from having a sound sleep at night. Patients would start to feel that they were awake almost throughout the night.

How can SomnoMed solve this problem?

SomnoMed works by increasing the arch of the upper jaw allowing easy passage of air into the body. It is estimated that 91% of the patients who have used SomnoMed says that they have been experiencing improved and sound sleep.

SomnoMed can be now customized for patient comfort and even available for those who wear dentures and crowns. The appliance is engineered with upper and lower plates that will rest on the teeth. It is developed to provide comfort while the patient wears it. A hinge-like structure is built allowing the dental plates to move up and down like how the jaws of the mouth function.
