How To Use The Silensor-sl® Anti-Snoring Device

This anti-snoring device treats snoring by advancing the lower jaw, which keeps the airways open. The appliance is custom made to measure, for you and consists of
an upper blue and a lower green splint.

Instructions For Daily Use

Important: always clean your teeth thoroughly before inserting the appliance.

1. Inserting The Appliance

First run the appliance under warm running water. Place the appliance into your mouth with the blue upper splint onto your upper teeth. Press upwards on the splint with both thumbs to ensure that it fits securely and comfortably.

2. Seating The Lower Splint

Slide your lower jaw forward until it locates into the green lower splint then press down on both sides of the splint using your index fingers to ensure that it fits securely.

Removal

Always remove the lower green splint first. Using your thumbs on both sides under the edge of the splint, gently push the lower splint up and remove it. To remove the upper Blue upper splint, gently pull down with both your index fingers and thumbs and remove it.

When you remove the splint in the morning your bite may temporarily feel slightly different. The bite tab will help you relax your muscles. Place it between your upper and lower front teeth and move your lower jaw back until the feeling of tension dissipates.

It is recommended that you use the bite tab every morning for at least 10 minutes to help return your jaw to its pre snoring
device position.

Important: Always clean your appliance after each use. Use Cal Dent cleaning sachets once a week.
