Are their side effects or complications from wearing a SomnoDent oral device?

As with any medical treatment, there are possible complications or side effects to dental sleep therapy. There are three primary side effects when using the device; tooth discomfort, TMJ (jaw joint) or muscular discomfort, and tooth movement or bite changes.

The side effects and complications of using COAT ( Continuous Open Airway Therapy ) are still considered minor and mostly, patients' discomfort will subside after a week or two after using the appliance. Minor complications like salivation and dry lips are also possible.

Dear Patients,

We are still open, but temporarily seeing patients with essential dental needs only.

Thank you
