The ProSomnus Sleep Device
Now that you know how dangerous snoring and obstructive sleep apnea can be, what can you do to stop it?
Many people begin by seeing their family doctor and undergoing a sleep study. Often, a CPAP device will be prescribed. The CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy device is considered the gold-standard of OSA therapy and some people do well with them, finding instant relief and comfort. Others find sleeping with a mask forcing air into their throats very difficult. Still, others have mild enough sleep apnea or snoring that they don’t need a CPAP but could benefit from deeper sleep and better oxygen intake.
For patients who suffer from only mild airway obstructions that results in snoring, an oral sleep appliance can provide quiet, restful sleep for patients and partners.
For patients who find their CPAP miserable to wear, inconvenient when traveling, or useless when there is no power, such as when camping, an oral sleep appliance can be a lifesaver.
Pinecrest Dental has been successfully treating patients suffering from snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea with the slim and comfortable ProSomnus Sleep Device.
Both snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are caused by a collapse of the soft tissues or the tongue into the airway, blocking it and keeping you from taking a proper breath. The ProSomnus Sleep Device work amazingly well by gently advancing your lower jaw and keeping it in a slightly forward position.
The ProSomnus Sleep Device is the smallest and most comfortable oral appliance available. Each device is custom-made with CAD/CAM technology from clear, stain-resistant, metal-free, biocompatible material, to uniquely fit the individual it is fabricated for. Unlike other bulky appliances, it offers plenty of space in your mouth in which your tongue can rest comfortably while you sleep.
Even better, you can open and close your mouth, so you don’t feel trapped in your appliance the way you might in some others. How? The ProSomnus Sleep Device comes in two parts. One arch fits over the upper teeth and one over the lower teeth. These two parts work together to hold your jaw in the ideal position to help you stop snoring.
ProSomnus Sleep Devices were used to successfully treat 71% of OSA patients, including 100% of mild patients, 86% of moderate patients and 42% of severe patients.
