For the majority of snorers, the most affordable, non-invasive, comfortable, effective, snoring solution remains a dentist-prescribed snoring preventative device such as Silent Nite® sl .
Silent Nite® sl. is a custom-fabricated dental device that moves the lower jaw into a forward position, increasing space in the airway tube and reducing air velocity and soft tissue vibration. Special connectors are attached to transparent flexible upper and lower splints. To determine the patient’s starting anteriorization, a bite registration should be taken using the sl-protrusion gauge. The sl-protrusion gauge is designed to directly register the appropriate mandibular advancement (protrusion) for the patient receiving the Silent Nite® sl. The splints are custom-laminated with heat and pressure to the dentist’s model of the mouth. The fit is excellent and comfortable, permitting small movements of the jaw (TMJ) and allowing uninhibited oral breathing.
