HOW DOES IT HELP? HOW DOES IT WORK?
SILENSOR-SL consists of one transparent bite for the upper dental arch and one for the lower arch. The jaw is held in position or anteriorized by means of two connectors that join the two bits laterally. In this way, Silensorl avoids shrinking the respiratory tract.
The air flow rate decreases and the noisy vibrations of the soft parts are attenuated. The Silensor leaves the jaw mobile, but prevents it from lowering and moving backwards.
This function makes Silensor a comfortable, yet effective, anti-snoring device.
Clinical trials 1-6 have shown that mandibular anteriorization reduces snoring in over 80% of patients and the apnea index can be reduced by more than 50%.
WHEN IS SILENSOR-SL INDICATED?
In most cases, snoring is caused by airway restriction, Silensor-sl can treat this disorder. The structure does not prevent breathing with the mouth.
However, body weights that are considerably higher than the standard may present an obstacle. A Body Mass Index BMI greater than 30 gradually reduces the effectiveness of Silensor. Silensor-sl cannot be applied in cases where the patient has full mobile prosthesis. The dentist must assess whether the residual tooth ensures proper retention.
If you may have sleep apnea, due to the severity of this illness, Silensor-sl's utility should be verified by a specialized sleep analysis center.
Thanks to perfect positioning and precision, personalized Playsafe dental protection lasts 10 times longer than a Boil & Bite (heat and bite) protection.
The latter is due to the displacements that are subject to a much higher chewing load.
Playsafe protection fits tightly into the dental arch, does not move, allows you to breathe freely and, after a short period of time, to speak normally.
Boil & Bite protectors are NOT accurate and move around. The athlete has to maintain this protection on the dental arch, which results in his performance being compromised.
You can get your dental protection in 2, 3, or 4 colors. Choose from among the 15 Playsafe colors. There are also various thicknesses available, depending on your specific sport.
The bit has a function that initially is diagnostic and then also therapeutic, releasing the occlusion from any preconditions or other anomalies. Allows the chewing muscle to relax and simultaneously attenuates or removes the annoying symptoms that the patient would have suffered from at an earlier point in time, including headaches, cervical disorders, dizziness and tinnitus.
A resting test is initially performed to detect the basic tone of the chewing muscle as well as the predominant posture of the muscles.
A functional chewing test is then performed to ensure that the temporal activity is lower or, at most, equal to that of the omo-lateral masseter. The test is of great importance to diagnose a hypothetical laterodevision of the mandible or a precursor. These tests are important for using the bit, as they provide useful information about the exact "vertical dimension".
