Quality of life issues, such as inability to sleep due to snoring or Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) may be improved through the use of an EMA (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) oral appliance. This is a customized removeable appliance created for noninvasive treatment of snoring and OSA. The appliance is designed to both advance the mandible and open the bite to allow for less restricted airflow during sleep.
EMA devices help promote a deeper, more restful sleep by preventing snoring and relieving the symptoms of OSA. The EMA does not interfere with breathing through the mouth, even in cases of congested nasal passages.
