Respire® Sleep Appliances
One of the most widely used oral appliances across the country, SomnoDent Sleep appliances improve the sleep quality for 90 percent of those who use them daily. To improve sleep, they slightly shift the position of the jaw forward, preventing the airway from being obstructed. They are made from sturdy, flexible materials and always custom-made to fit comfortably over a patient’s teeth. You’ll also be able to speak and drink without removing it, making its use even more convenient.
TAP Oral Appliances
Whether you suffer from chronic snoring or you have sleep apnea, TAP oral appliances are ideal for treating a whole range of sleep-disordered breathing. By creating a mold based on your teeth, we can design an oral appliance that ensures a precision fit. Additionally, they can be adapted to work with CPAP machines in case you want to pursue combined therapy. Thanks to the TAP, far more people can benefit from oral appliance therapy.
Modified Herbst Appliance
The modified Herbst appliance is smaller and less invasive than most typical sleep apnea appliances, and it has a long lifespan as well! It allows jaw movement in every direction but backward, and patients will be capable of talking, taking medications, and drinking with it securely in place. However, this may not be the right option for patients who severely grind their teeth; it could crack because of the pressure.
