TECHNICAL NOTES
We need upper and lower models. If the models cannot be hand-articulated, please send a bite registration in centric occlusion.
Please check how far the patient is able to move their mandible protrusively. A protrusive bite is mandatory in cases wherein:
a) The patient's capability to move their mandible into the protrusive position is limited
b) The patient's mandible shifts to one side or the other
c) The patient has an existing appliance set to a specific protrusive position wherein our lab must duplicate the anteriorization


Silent Nite sl can be anteriorized between 1 - 10 mm using a special template.
Standard setting for Snite appliance 27/24 3 mm anteriorization.

25/24 1 mm anteriorization
28/24 4 mm anteriorization
31/24 7 mm anteriorization
25/23 2 mm anteriorization
28/23 5 mm anteriorization
31/23 8 mm anteriorization
25/22 3 mm anteriorization
28/22 6 mm anteriorization
31/22 9 mm anteriorization
25/21 4 mm anteriorization
28/21 7 mm anteriorization
31/21 10 mm anteriorization
Recommended Cleaning Instructions:
  • Brush and floss your teeth before placing the appliance in your mouth.
  • DO NOT soak the appliance in mouthwash, denture cleaner or alcohol. DO NOT place in hot or boiling water or expose to excessive heat (such as direct sunlight), as this will distort the appliance.
  • Rinse well with water before and after use and store dry.
  • Clean appliance with soap and warm water ONLY.
  • If it becomes loose, tight or causes you any discomfort, contact your dentist immediately.
INDICATIONS / CONTRAINDICATIONS
Silent Nite sl can be used for any patient with either a full or a partial set of natural teeth. The remaining teeth should have sufficient height of contour for the device to gain retention at the gingival third. Edentulous ridge must be fully captured in the impression.
Silent Nite sl cannot be used with fully edentulous patients. It can be fitted to a partial denture only if it has adequate retention and the patient sleeps with it in place (this is not recommended by the American Dental Association). It cannot be used in cases of myofacial dysfunction, arthropathy of the temporomandibular joint and advanced periodontal problems. Obesity, alcohol or other sedatives may affect the performance of the device. It cannot be used for patients wearing braces. It cannot be used as bleaching trays. It cannot be made for patients with a crossbite.

Start with an accurate bite registration and void-free impression using a custom tray.
