This dentist-prescribed device is among the most affordable, non-invasive, comfortable and effective solutions to snoring and sleep apnea.

How Silent Nite Works

Silent Nite is custom made to end sleep apnea for each patient by:

  • Modeling each device after the patient's mouth for a comfortable fit.
  • Taking a bite registration to determine appropriate jaw placements for the patient.
  • Moving the lower jaw into a forward position, increasing airways and allowing uninhibited breathing.

The Facts of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition that affects the way you breathe while sleeping - often leading to frequent, loud snoring. Specifically, this is instigated when the soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes while you sleep, causing interruptions in breathing. These interruptions usually last between 10 to 20 seconds each and can occur up to hundreds of times a night. Sleep apnea is typically more prevalent in males, smokers, and the elderly; it can also cause a wide range of problems from sleep disturbance to more serious health issues. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Loud, chronic snoring and long pauses in breath
  • Choking or gasping while sleeping
  • Feeling tired and sleepy throughout the day
  • Waking up with a headache, dry mouth, or sore throat
  • Insomnia or constantly waking during the night
  • Forgetfulness, irritability or depression
