Somnowell is a UK based company specializing in the manufacture of bespoke chrome cobalt oral devices for snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. Somnowell is headed by the inventor Visiting Professor Simon Ash, a leading Consultant and Specialist Orthodontist with over 30 years clinical experience.
The name SOMNOWELL is from "somno" which is latin for "sleep"", and "well" from "wellness".
The Somnowell Chrome mandibular advancement appliance is the first device made from super medical alloy chrome cobalt. This is the same material used for 50 years in dentures, and also joint replacements.
Mandibular advancement appliances are unequiviocally proven to control snoring and sleep apnoea. The problem has been that bulky plastic devices are difficult for patients to tolerate as the mouth is the most sensitive part of the body. The Somnowell Chrome is so successful because it is the most comfortable and effective appliance available. This is because it sslim-line and 100% tailor-made for the individual with the production, service, and support persoanlly led by the inventor Visiting Professor Simon Ash. Visiting Professor Ash is a Consultant Orthodontist from London with a special interest in sleep related breathing disorders. Plastic devices by their nature have to be bulky to have the strength required. All plastic devices become smelly and unsightly, and degrade until they have to be replaced. The Somnowell Chrome is extremely durable, hygienic and sterilisable (unlike plastic devices), and fully adjustable to ensure it always remains effective.
A testimonial from Dr. Brian Clarke, Bayswater Dental Practice:
"Being a snorer myself, I’d been involved with Mandibular Advancement Appliances for some years. Plastic appliances were “a mouthful” and uncomfortable, aggravated dribbling over the pillow and made speech near impossible. They were not well tolerated.
Then I was introduced to the Somnowell Chrome … it was a revelation and the “Rolls Royce” of Mandibular Advancement Appliances. Over the last ten years, I’ve treated nearly 200 patients with the Somnowell. Even patients that had been diagnosed with sleep apnoea and snoring and advised to use CPAP, have been successfully using the Somnowell Chrome. My Somnowell patients frequently tell me I have transformed their lives, as well as that of their partners. It’s always refreshing to hear that the sleeping partners can comfortably sleep together in the same room again! I highly recommend it to any patients who are suffering from snoring or sleep apnoea."
