For patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, a dental device can be worn to hold the lower jaw in a more forward position. By maintaining this forward position throughout the night while wearing the device the airway is kept open during sleep, patients can breathe freely and be oxygenated. Oral appliances are so comfortable; they have no noise or fuss and no bulky equipment to sleep with at night.
The Herbst Appliance - Medicare Approved Appliance Manufactured through Gergens Orthodontic Laboratory.
The EMA® (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) is a custom-made removable intraoral appliance created for noninvasive treatment of snoring and OSA. The appliance is designed to both advance the lower jaw (mandible) and open the bite to allow for less restricted airflow during sleep. The EMA has many options for mandibular patient advancement with 5 strap lengths and 4 different elastic tension options. The appliance does not interfere with breathing through the mouth, even in cases of congested nasal passages. Non restricted side-to-side (lateral) or front-to-back (protrusive) movements of the jaw are possible while wearing the appliance due to varying elastic bands.
