 The Simple Way to Stop Snoring!

The Stop Snoring Appliance (SSA) is a professionally custom made anti snoring appliance that is only available from your dentist. The SSA is custom made by means of intra-oral impressions, so it will fit your mouth precisely. Some over-the-counter devices exist, but like all other similar products, provide an inferior fit in comparison to a professionally custom made device.

How Does The SSA Works?

The SSA basically consists of 2 plastic(acrylic) gum guards that fit over the upper and lower teeth. These acrylic guards are joined together so when placed and fitted you have to use some force to open your mouth. This prevents the mouth from opening during sleep.
The device helps to position the lower jaw forward and thus prevents the tongue from falling back during sleep. When the tongue falls against the back part of the palate (soft palate) during sleep, it narrows the airway opening and creates a
vibration we call snoring . 
The SSA can be made to effectively prevent snoring by
positioning the lower jaw and tongue in aforward position to enable an open airway during sleep.  

 

 Your Dental Appointment


1st Visit:

After a diagnosis and history taking we evaluate your bite and teeth to see if you are a good candidate for a Stop Snoring Appliance (SSA).
If all is OK we take impressions of your upper & lower teeth to make your custom-fitted SSA.

 

2nd Visit:

The 2nd visit is the fitting appointment to see if your SSA  feels comfortable and that the fit is good. We will further provide you with instructions and follow up appointments if necessary.
