Snoring Appliances & Sleep Apnea

SLEEP APNEA DEVICES

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterised by interrupted breathing patterns. People who are diagnosed with sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, which may result in the lack of oxygen in the brain and the rest of the body.

If a person fails to treat sleep apnea, they are at risk of suffering from high blood pressure, heart failure, heart attack and stroke, as well as diabetes, headaches, and depression. Ultimately, people may notice daytime fatigue and poor performance in daily activities related to work or school.

There are two types of sleep apnea:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which occurs when an airway is blocked by the soft tissue at the back of the throat.
  • Central sleep apnea which occurs when the brain fails to send signals to the muscles responsible for breathing.

One of the possible treatments for sleep apnea includes the use of sleep apnea devices which are designed to reposition the tongue and the lower jaw, thus maintaining the air passage unobstructed. At Oceanic Dental Laboratory, we can deliver a first-class dental appliance for snoring to facilitate the treatment of sleep apnea and snoring. We use state-of-the-art technology to custom-build dental appliances that will perfectly fit a particular patient’s mouth, using only top-quality materials that will ensure the comfort and durability of the final product.

SILENSOR SL

The Silensor SL is a thin, anti-snoring and sleep apnea device built to fit the lower jaw. It positions the lower jaw forward with the help of special Slide-Link connectors that attach to lower and upper splints. As a result, an airway passage is cleared, and air velocity and soft tissue vibration are lowered. The Silensor SL is designed with comfort and flexibility in mind, thus allowing the patient to perform small jaw movements and breathe uninhibitedly.

DORSAL

Dorsal dental appliance for snoring is intended for the treatment of sleep apnea and snoring by keeping the airway open and unobstructed. In shape, it resembles a custom-fitted mouth guard and is easy to use and position in the mouth.

Due to the fact that the dorsal dental appliance to stop snoring comes with two separate workpieces, it is extremely flexible. This means that it will not limit the patient’s ability to speak, open, or close their mouth. The two adjustable screws in the maxillary are included to enable further mandibular advancement.

MDSA

MDSA (Medical Dental Sleep Appliance) is sleep apnea, Australia-made device recommended for patients who are diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It holds the jaw and tongue forward, that way preventing the throat from collapsing during sleep.

  • The device does not impede with tongue space, even when the jaw is advanced.
  • MDSA delivers utmost comfort and retention for the patient.
  • It enables controlled vertical and a full lateral movement.
  • The dental device offers easy insertion and adjustment.
  • It is praised for its easy maintenance.
