How to fit SomnoGuard AP

October 24th, 2009

The mandibular has two clear hard outer separate shell trays, which is filled up with a soft mouldable material, which molds the upper and lower teeth one at a time, and there are no limits as to how many times each tray can be molded. When you gently wear the soft SomnoGuard® AP mandibular advancement adjustable positioner medical device, into your mouth after easy custom fitting, the mandibular which molds around your teeth fits gently and holds your lower jaw forward, made after molding with the screw adjuster. If you require further adjustment, you can be readjusted as many times as you like. When the lower jaw is in that position, the upper airway is wider and eliminating the vibration and you can breathe more easily without obstruction (snoring).
