Mandibular Advancement Device SomnoFit
- Highly Effective: Against tongue-based snoring (i.e. you only snore while you sleep on your back) and position-dependent mild to moderate sleep apnoea. Suitable for normal to large jaw. Important: Use for treatment of sleep apnea only after consultation with physician (for instance, your ENT or pneumologist).
- How to Use: It is worn in the mouth overnight. It keeps your airway clear by gently moving your lower jaw (mandible) and, therefore, your tongue base forward (mandibular advancement), this allows the air to circulate freely during your sleep and prevents your tongue from partially blocking the back of your throat. The extent of mandibular advancement ranges between +3mm and 10,5mm (on average) and occurs in 6 stages. These stages calibrated by the length of band used (6 bands of different lengths included).
- Great Comfort: Highly flexible snoring mouth guard which can be individually fitted to your teeth (through warming up the device in a water bath and taking a custom impression of your teeth). Fitting can be repeated multiple times and provides optimal wearing comfort. Nonirritating design.
- Made in Switzerland: Manufactured from super-smooth, top-quality medical-grade synthetics, free of plasticizers. Product includes: Thermometer and bite fork for optimal fitting process, ventilated blue storage box.
- Approved: This device is cleared by the FDA and CE-certified in the EU.
Recommendations: Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) are recommended by the NHS for snoring caused by the tongue partially blocking the back of the throat.
How to choose the right anti-snoring device
Snoring may have very different causes and there is no device that covers all possible snoring causes (don’t be fooled by those who claim otherwise!). Here’s a short guideline on how to choose the right anti-snoring device for your specific type of snoring.
- If you snore because you cannot get enough air through your nose (i.e. you are a nasal snorer), try a nasal dilator such as somnipax breathe or our oxyhero pull nasal strips.
- If you only snore while you sleep on the back (i.e. you are a tongue-based snorer), then SomnoFit is the right device for you. If you also snore while you sleep on the side, then chances are low that SomnoFit will help you.
- If you only snore when your mouth is open (i.e. you are a mouth-based snorer), then you should consider the somnipax shield mouth guard (for mouth snoring). somnipax shield blocks mouth breathing and, therefore, stops mouth snoring effectively.
- Total length of snoring mouth guard (measured from the back to the front): 1.8″ (4.6 cm); total width of mouth guard: 2.36″ (6 cm); total height of mouth guard: max. 0.55″ (1.4 cm)
- 6 mandibular advancement levels +3 mm, +5 mm, +6 mm, +7.5 mm, +9 mm +10.5 mm advancement (the actual value may deviate from the standard depending on the patient’s jaw)
- Lifespan: 18 – 24 months on average. Bruxism (teeth grinding) can reduces SnorBan‘s lifespan significantly.
Important Product Advice
Initially, the snoring mouth guard may feel uncomfortable in your mouth. Usually, it takes about two to three weeks to get accustomed to the device and no longer perceive SomnoFit as a foreign body.
Somnofit may not be suitable for you, if you
- have a protruding jaw or large overbite,
- suffer from pain in the jaw, loose teeth, a serious gum- or temporomandibular joint disease or other jaw issues,
- wear braces or a removable denture or have problems with the upper or lower front teeth,
- suffer from chronic asthma or epilepsy,
- are under the age of 18.
If one or more of these cases apply to you, please contact us or consult your dentist before you buy.
If you suspect that you suffer from sleep apnoea, please buy and use this device only after consulting with a physician (for instance, your ENT).
Fitting & Cleaning Instructions
Only a few simple steps are required for fitting SomnoFit to your teeth: Place the piece of the snoring mouth guard that is intended for the upper jaw in a water bath. Increase heat until the ideal temperature has been reached (for measurement there is a thermometer included). Leave the device in the hot water bath for two minutes. Afterwards, place the snoring mouth guard onto the upper dental arch and press on it firmly (Even after the water bath the material is not too hot for that). Repeat the procedure with the piece intended for the lower jaw. Then you can attach one of the bands to both parts of the snoring mouth guard in order to calibrate the advancement appropriately – the shorter the band, the stronger the advancement.

You can clean the Mandibular Advancement Device with mild soap and lukewarm water. Alternatively, add a little bit of mouthwash to a cup and use a toothbrush to clean the device in the solution. After maximum one minute , take the snoring mouthpiece out of the solution again and rinse with water. To achieve optimal cleaning results, you can also use special cleaning tablets or gels (e. g. BONYplus tabs or the Curaprox-cleaner). Do not use toothpaste or regular denture cleaners, the ingredients may damage the surface of the snoring mouthpiece.
In the case of a strong overbite, it may be that the bands which are included are not long enough. But there is a simple solution to this, which we outlined for you here (“How to use the SomnoFit in case of a strong overbite”).

Q Do I have to go to the dentist with the SomnoFit so that he adapts? Should not I take a dentist's... answer nowA
Somnofit is a very high quality product, which can usually be adapted by the customer himself. No help from the dentist is needed. Of course, there may be special cases in which the dentist should make the adjustment - especially if there are severe malocclusions or large gaps in the tooth structure (i. e. many teeth are missing). The fact that you visit the dentist in these cases is, however, not a special feature of Somnofit but also applies to all other high-quality, thermoplastic assembly lines on the market.
Even if one adds dental adjustment costs, Somnofit costs with 100-150 EUR significantly less than a dental manufactured anti-snoring splint, which costs approx. 500 EUR (entry-level model) up to 1000 EUR (for a high-quality model).
However, a tailor-made track can not exclude the following risks: (i) it does not reduce the snoring or not significantly because it is not the appropriate remedy for the actual snoring cause (snoring can have many different causes have: see also our overview of snoring causes); (ii) that the patient does not come to terms with the feeling of a foreign body in the mouth even after the adaptation period.
