Types of Oral Appliances
If you have sleep apnea or bruxism, oral appliance therapy can be an option for improving your quality of sleep and protecting your health. Oral appliances are less invasive than some other treatments, offering a comfortable, convenient option to stop snoring, teeth grinding and breathing problems when you sleep. Marietta Sleep customizes oral appliances to treat sleep apnea, snoring and bruxism, offering a variety of different types for our patients. Here are some of the types of oral appliances we offer to improve your quality of sleep.
One of the most recognized and popular oral appliances for repositioning the jaw during sleep is the Herbst. This device is also used for orthodontics and TMJ, but is effective for sleep apnea and bruxism treatment. The Herbst offers easy and accurate adjustment of the jaw to control certain types of sleep apnea, snoring or teeth grinding.
The TAP® (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) 3 is a two-piece oral appliance that fits comfortably over the upper and lower teeth to reposition the jaw forward. This appliance can help reduce chronic snoring or treat some forms of sleep apnea with mandibular adjustment, reducing snoring and improving breathing for 95% of patients.
The ProSomnus® oral appliances offer a customized solution for treating obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. The benefits of ProSomnus oral appliances include unique sizing to fit petite mouths and those challenged with lip competency for a more comfortable treatment experience.
The MicrO2® mandibular adjustment device (MAD) offers treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. One of the benefits of MicrO2 is the stronger, thinner material. This allows for a more comfortable, less bulky design that can adjust the jaw as needed to improve breathing, reduce snoring and restore quality sleep.
