What is the difference between somnipax guard and somnipax guard S?
somnipax guard is the all-rounder – i.e. this mandibular advancement device (MAD) is suitable for jaws of nearly all shapes and sizes. somnipax guard S is more suitable for small- to average-sized jaws. It has a very slim and material-saving design. Should you be unsure whether the somnipax guard S is suitable for your jaw, then we recommend the following approach:
Cut a square from a thick and clean cardboard box, just large enough in size to fit inside your mouth and to cover your teeth. Insert the cardboard square into your mouth and bite down on it. This should leave behind a clear imprint of your jaw on the cardboard square. Then measure the length and width of your jaw imprint with the aid of a ruler, followed by comparing your measurements with the MAD measurements provided on the respective product page in the section “Technical Data”. The MAD should be at least 1 mm larger in length and width than that of your jaw imprint in order to be a suitable fit for your respective jaw size.
