At MUNDWERK Die Kieferorthopäden we are using different types of snoring guards. Our snoring guards are made off of two plastic retainers for both jaws, so that the lower jaw can be pushed forward during the night (mandibular protrusion retainer). Usually, patients are adapting well to the retainers, after a short period of getting used to them. Side effects like an overstrain of the mandibular joints are rarely the case. After the initial introduction of the guard, two to three short control appointments are recommended. Afterwards, patients should get their snoring guard checked once or twice a year. Before starting treatment it is recommended to clarify if the financial costs of the production of the snoring guard and the treatment will be covered. A new set of guards is necessary after two years of use, based on hygienic reasons.
