Custom-fitted dental devices have proven to be a successful treatment for many OSA sufferers and snorers. They are less cumbersome and more comfortable than other alternatives such as CPAP or surgery. At Simple Sleep Services, we can recommend a device that is most appropriate for your individual situation. Our solutions are proven to be effective and are FDA cleared Class II medical devices (FDA 510K #K050592 and #K130558) that have many advantages including:
At Simple Sleep Services our proven “go to” device – The SomnoDent® — adds another dimension to Continuous Open Airway Therapy. Gentle (unnoticeable) forward tongue posturing and an open anterior design provide maximum effectiveness and comfort. When combined with mandibular advancement, the Simple Sleep Solution™ becomes what we believe to be the most effective and comfortable appliance available. In addition, the two-part construction allows patients to talk, drink, open wide and close their lips, making this, in many users opinion, the most comfortable appliance available to treat sleep apnea.
The Simple Sleep Solution™ is comfortable. In studies, 88% of patients reported regular use of the appliance. The life expectancy of the Simple Sleep Solution™ is 3 to 5 years, and all of our devices have a 3-year warranty against manufacturing defects. Most importantly the Simple Sleep Solution™ is clinically effective. Fifteen independent studies demonstrate the device’s significant clinical benefits and 91% of patients reported improvement in sleep quality.
Most insurance plans will approve a new oral appliance every year too!
In a treatment called Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), patients wear a specialized mask over the nose and face during sleep. The mask is connected to a device that delivers a steady supply of air, keeping the airway open. CPAP treatment is usually very successful, provided the patient is willing to use it correctly and consistently.
Several different “snoring surgery” options exist and are determined by each patient’s specific problem. Some surgeries are minimal, while others involve more serious risks. Most patients report that these procedures are painful and have mediocre results. The pillar procedure and UPPP are not recognized by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine as first line therapies for obstructive sleep apnea.
