The Somnowell appliance is the world’s first 4th generation oral device for snoring and sleep apnoea. Designed by Professor Simon Ash, a Consultant and Specialist Orthodontist with over 30 years clinical experience. Tailor-made from a medical super alloy, the Somnowell is a lifetime solution and the most slim-line, comfortable, and hygienic device available.
You may well ask why an Orthodontist would be fitting devices for snoring and sleep apnoea. The reason is that the design is based on the same design as functional braces that we have been using for over a hundred years. The difference with the Somnowell is that the metal it is made from enables it to be made in very thin sections, leaving more space for your tongue and air, while maintaining its strength.
One other advantage that the Somnowell has over other, less expensive, oral appliances is that it can be adjusted and activated over time. This is particularly important in the early stages when wearing the appliance.
Dr. Crotty has been using Somnowell since 2011. He is a Platinum Provider of the appliance. There are payment plans for the appliance, with a downpayment of, usually, €799 and the remainder payable over the following 6 months.
