With our new Silensorsnore guards you can now sleep easily and peacefully!
What is the silensor snore guard?
Essentially the Silensorsnore guard is an upper and lower jaw mouth guard attached together. The guard is designed in a way that helps protrude the lower jaw forwards to prevent the respiratory tract from narrowing. This will aid in a quieter night’s sleep.
Why choose our snore guard over other brands?
The Silensorsnore guard is a simple but effective device. It is small and sleek and does not feel intrusive in the mouth like some other manufacturers on the market. It is made of plastic and not metal.
Snore guards with metal components tend to feel quite large and restrictive inside the mouth.
The simple plastic design also makes it easier to keep the device clean and hygienic. The device has plastic hinges that attach the two jaws together, these hinges come in varying sizes to allow for more or less protrusion of the jaw.
They can be changed depending on the success or comfort of the device. So if the device has been successful or if the patient’s jaw feels uncomfortable, the hinges can be swapped for a smaller or larger hinges to make the patient more comfortable.
Another benefit of the plastic hinges are that if they break they are much easier and cheaper to replace than that of a device with metal type hinges.
So what’s actually happening when we snore?
When we’re sleeping the muscle tone in our throat relaxes and causes the respiratory tract to narrow. The narrowing causes tissues to vibrate which creates snoring. So if your snoring is frequent or excessively loud a Silensor snore guard could help you / your partner with a better night’s sleep.
The Procedure (What you need to do)
You will need to see a dentist to have two impressions taken and a bite registration. The dentist will take an impression of both jaws and usually ask you to bite down on sheets of warm wax to take a recording of your jaw relation (the bite)
The impressions will then be sent to the dental technicians to process the work. This is usually a 1-week turn around. Once your snore guard is ready the dentist will instruct you on the correct way to insert the appliance into your mouth. They’ll also give advice on how to keep the appliance hygienically clean.
Review appointment with the dentist
You’ll be expected to try the snore guard for 2-4 weeks to see how you progress with the appliance. A follow-up appointment will be booked to see how you feel you’ve progressed with the appliance. Usually, your partner will know if your snoring has lessened. If you have any discomfort the dentist can change the hinges to allow a more comfortable night’s sleep if needed.
The results should end with the patient having quieter sleep. This will usually make the patient’s partner happy. And once everyone’s happy we’re happy with a job well done!
