Sleep Diagnostics & Oral Appliances
Your sleep lab polysomnography provides us with the information necessary to create an oral appliance (OA) with an effective protrusive position for the lower jaw. The OA corrects the cause of the airway blockage responsible for snoring and Obstructed Sleep Apnea.
We provide a custom-made oral appliance (OA) comprised of upper and lower dental plates which allows normal opening and closing of the mouth. An oral appliance will almost certainly stop your snoring and will most likely eliminate or significantly reduce your Obstructive Sleep Apnea. For your bed partner, and maybe the entire household, this means peace and quiet again and a better night’s sleep. For you, it will mean better quality sleep. As a result, you will be less likely to suffer from headaches and daytime sleepiness, and your ability to concentrate will improve.
We work with multiple appliance fabricators to provide the OA that will best suit each patient's needs. We will explain and recommend the best appliance for your unique condition.
In office, we will scan your upper and lower teeth with a 3d scanner that is used by the fabricator to create your OA.
The Panthera D-SAD, made of medical grade nylon, is the smallest OA device in the industry. It is the only oral appliance that is entirely printed using CAD/CAM technology.
The Panthera D-SAD is recommended for the treatment of snoring, mild to moderate sleep apnea, and severe sleep apnea for patients who do not tolerate the CPAP treatment.
The ProSomnus® MicrO2® Sleep and Snore Device is thinner and stronger with significantly less overall bulk and volume than many other oral appliances.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a mild air pressure ventilator for people who are not able to breathe normally. CPAP is an older technology used to treat OSA and snoring that operates on a continuous basis to keep the airways open. It is effective and offers a solution for more severe cases that can not be corrected by the use of an OA.
If you have found Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) uncomfortable, why not try a brilliant alternative treatment for OSA? The difference in comfort and tolerance will astound you.
