Somnowell

Snoring

What is snoring?

Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue. Studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore. Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the resulting stress, leading to lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability. In the long term, snoring can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems.

Somnowell for Snoring

The good news is that the overwhelming majority of people suffering from problematic snoring can be effectively treated using a Somnowell. The appliance is such an effective treatment for snoring because it tackles the problem at its root cause. The Somnowell is designed to gently hold the lower jaw and tongue in the ‘recovery position’ while you sleep, keeping the airway open

Sleep Apnoea

What is Sleep Apnoea?

With Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) an increase in weight or a reduction in muscle tone can trigger the change from a partially blocked airway (snoring) to a completely blocked airway. It is common for the sufferer to be completely unaware of the disorder, and remain undiagnosed for several years. OSA has been linked to an increased risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.

Somnowell for Sleep Apnoea

The Somnowell sleeping aid is a very effective long-term treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea. The Somnowell ensures an open airway is maintained throughout sleep, and is perfectly designed to meet the unique requirements of each user. A high level of precision goes into the design of the Somnowell, making it an extremely comfortable and effective treatment for sleep apnoea.

Bruxism

Bruxism facts

  • Bruxism is the clinical term for teeth grinding
  • Bruxism can be both rhythmic (chewing) and sustained (clenching).
  • Sufferers of the bruxism may develop headaches and jaw pain.

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is a habit related to chewing, controlled by the subconscious processes active during sleep. It is one of the most common types of sleeping disorder. Grinding teeth in sleep can reduce the amount of rejuvenating deep (REM) sleep obtained. If left untreated, teeth grinding can lead to significant tooth loss and gum recession. Somnowell for Bruxism The Somnowell is made from chrome cobalt alloy and is impervious to wear from teeth grinding. The smooth polished chrome surfaces of the Somnowell allow the individual to rhythmically move their jaw during sleep without damaging the tooth enamel. The Somnowell provides relief to the jaw joint and facial muscles, and gives the gums and soft tissues a chance to heal and rest.

TMJ

TMJ facts

  • Temperomandibular Joint Disorder affects between 5% and 12% of the population
  • TMJ affects the jaw joint - one of the most complex joints in the body
  • The jaw joint undergoes constant strain, and is used every time you talk, chew, and swallow

What is TMJ?

Temperomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) covers a range of conditions affecting the jaw joints and chewing muscles. Symptoms include jaw pain, earache, migraine and difficulty in chewing. Various factors can place a strain on the jaw joint, leading to pain and discomfort. These include excessive nail biting and gum chewing, and misalignment of the teeth due to dental problems.

Somnowell for TMJ

The Somnowell is an unparalleled treatment for TMJ. The creation of each Somnowell involves technologies normally reserved for advanced medical procedures. The appliance places the jaw in its optimum balanced and therapeutic position. The Somnowell holds the lower jaw forward during sleep and discourages clenching and tooth grinding by deprogramming the neuromuscular system.

Retention

Retainer facts

  • Teeth move throughout life, in response to many different forces
  • Biting forces are a contributing factor, as are movements in the face and mouth
  • As soon as you stop wearing a retainer your teeth will move

What is a Retainer?

After lengthy and costly orthodontic treatment, or restorative work, teeth retainers are provided to hold the newly adjusted teeth in position. Retainers are worn at night on a regular basis for as long as the wearer wishes to keep the teeth in position.

Somnowell Retainer

Until now there has been no satisfactory long term solution for retaining teeth after braces. The use of chrome cobalt allows the Somnowell retainers to be very thin and yet extremely strong. They do not suffer from wear or tear within the oral environment and are resistant to bacteria, enabling you to retain your beautiful smile for decades.
