Mandibular advancement splints
When the tongue falls back while sleeping, it makes breathing difficult and snoring occurs. Mandibular advancement trays hold the jaw and tongue forward, widening the airway.
A good, individually fitted and technically high-quality mandibular advancement splint costs about 1300 EUR including the first control session, which already includes several hundred euros of laboratory costs. Simpler models are considerably cheaper. Upon request, you will receive a treatment and cost plan prepared for you prior to treatment.
Snoring splint: Test
So-called “test splints” or “trial splints” are offered on the internet, in pharmacies or even in some medical practices. These are prefabricated splints that are supposed to be adjusted to the shape of the jaw and teeth by heating them. Despite all the effort, the success is usually modest, as the splints usually do not hold well on the teeth and the bulky feeling in the mouth reduces the comfort of wearing and thus sleeping. We only make them after explanation and at the express request of the patient.
Snoring splint: Pharmacy
Only simple, thermoplastic test splints can be sold in pharmacies. These are described in the previous paragraph.
