What if the oral device does not work?

It is proven that SomnoDent devices are effective in many patients. There could be an instance where the device is not right and working, or is not meeting your therapeutic needs. If you think your sleep apnea symptoms are getting worse always contact your Dentist for any advise or recommendation throughout the course of the treatment process.

In some instances,the Dentist will need to evaluate the appliance and make necessary adjustments. However, alternative treatment options will be discussed if you think that the appliance is not working for you as you may have a serious case of OSA.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
