Snoring Prevention Device
When the jaw opens and the tongue falls into the back of the throat, the airway narrows forcing air through the small opening. This creates vibrations in the throat known as snoring.
How does the Silent Nite Prevent Snoring?
Snoring research has shown that custom fabricated dental devices worn at night that move the lower jaw into a forward position, increase the three dimensional space in the airway tube which reduces air velocity and soft tissue vibration. By increasing the volumetric capacity of the airway and preventing soft tissue vibrations, snoring is eliminated. The Silent Nite device positions the lower jaw into a forward position by means of special connectors that are attached to transparent flexible upper & lower trays. The trays are thermoformed using heat and pressure to a model of your mouth which provides a comfortable fit.
Breathing is Easier with a Silent Nite
Silent Nite devices do not interfere with breathing through the mouth. Even in cases of congested nasal passages the device prevents snoring and allows uninhibited oral breathing. Small forward movements of the lower jaw are possible while wearing a Silent Nite device. This movement potential helps minimize stiffness in the joints of the jaw in the morning. Silent Nite devices help promote deeper, more restful sleep by preventing snoring.
