How does the ONIRIS® device work?
ONIRIS® is an innovative and patented mandibular advancement device designed to provide maximum levels of comfort and efficacy. The device – similar to a mouthguard for sportsmen or a dental splint – gently retains your lower jaw in a forward position during sleep. It therefore allows air to pass freely through the pharynx and prevents the obstructions that cause snoring and sleep apnoea Numerous clinical studies have shown that this technique works. ONIRIS® is the only solution to offer patients a customised fitting and total freedom of movement for greater comfort and an effective adjustment.
The result: a truly effective solution for snoring and sleep apnoea. And enjoy once again a comfortable and peaceful sleep.

These rigorous tests guarantee that what we promise is actually true:

Are mandibular advancement devices effective?
For several decades now, clinical studies have shown that mandibular repositioning devices are effective against snoring and sleep apnoea. Of course, other treatments are available.
Mandibular advancement devices are generally recommended as the first-line treatment for snoring and sleep apnoea1 by American, European, Japanese, etc. Sleep Associations.
However, for a mandibular advancement device to work it must include several features:
- A highly precise dental impression, to avoid pain and dental movements
- An accurate adjustment of the advancement, from 0 to 15 mm, to provide maximum efficiency and comfort
- Total freedom of movement to breathe, drink or talk naturally
- Simple to use, and able to be re-set and re-adjusted, if necessary, for greater comfort.
ONIRIS is the only anti-snoring device to include all these features to offer you quality sleep and comfortable and relaxing nights.
1 For cases of mild to moderate sleep apnoea. For cases of sleep apnoea, mandibular advancement devices are recommended for cases of rejection or in association with continuous positive-pressure machines. For cases of sleep apnoea, seek advice from your doctor.
What about other treatments for snoring?
Surgery can be effective but it is very expensive, involves risks and does not guarantee results even though it is final. Nasal dilators may help some snorers if their nasal breathing is limited but this is not the main cause of snoring. And throat lubricants (sprays or lozenges) do not work after a few minutes and in cases of very light snoring.
