From Patients

I wish more people knew about this product (SUAD™). I wish my doctors had told me about this years ago. People don't realize the far reaching effects of sleep deprivation, most importantly cell regeneration during the deep sleep stage and how it affects the heart and the multitude of ways it contribute to weight gain. I used to wake up feeling like I'd run a marathon in my sleep, face all swollen and puffy, exhausted, dazed and confused, just counting the minutes until my mid-day nap. Not anymore.

Narval CC

Seattle Sleep Medicine Adds Narval™ CC

Oral Application Therapy is a successful alternative to surgery or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines to end snoring and sleepless nights. In addition to their SUAD Oral, Tap Oral, SomnoDent Mas Oral, and Respire Oral appliances, Dr. Albert and his team at Seattle Sleep Medicine are excited to add Narval CC to their list of Oral Application Therapies.

Why Choose Narval CC?

Granted, many oral appliance therapies are available to correct obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) conditions such as sleep apnea itself or snoring, OSA occurs when the lower jaw drifts back, the muscles of the mouth relax, and the tongue drops back to block the airway leading to the lungs. Narval CC is one of the more prevalent mandibular repositioning devices (MRD) available.

Dr. Albert wants his patients to be as comfortable as possible during any rectifying situation. Narval CC offers that comfort. Designed to offer patients a comfortable fit, Narval CC employs lighter materials, expands the tongue area, and enables better ventricular mandibular movement, allowing patients to continue to speak and drink while the application is in use.

How Does Narval CC Work?

Narval CC is a customized device with an innovative design that uses advanced computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) technology, thus, the CC. With Narval CC, for example, Dr. Albert or one of his trained staff members at Seattle Sleep Medicine will make and send impressions or plaster models of their patients’ mouths to their lab partners. The lab partners create scans and models from which the application is designed and manufactured. Once manufactured, the Narval CC maintains the lower jaw in a forward position during sleep, keeping the airway open.

What Sets Narval CC above other Oral Application Therapies?

Seattle Sleep Medicine is constantly looking for ways to provide greater comfort for its patients. As in any industry, new innovations are developed every day. For now, the Narval CC represents a new generation of mandibular repositioning devices (MRD), specifically designed for the adult patient dealing with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Its patented Optimized Retention of the Mandible (ORM) articulation holds the mandible in a forward position, creating an effective treatment. Other benefits of Narval CC are as follows:

  • Its computer-aided design (CAD) allows a superior customization, adhering to the intricate dental make-up for each individual patient
  • Its computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) uses selective laser sintering, guaranteeing consistent, industrial-strength manufacturing
  • Its composite is polyamide, allowing for a slim, lightweight application:  resilient and durable
  • Its design reduces bulk in the mouth, ensuring patient comfort and use
  • Its design eliminates contact with incisors, reducing dental sensitivity post-wear
  • Its lateral flexibility removes the “locked-in” sensation, offering liberty to talk and drink
  • and again, its patented design of the Optimized Retention of the Mandible (ORM) articulation allows for mouth closing and functional breathing during sleep

Considering Narval CC?

Narval CC was designed to lessen the complications of patient discomfort from obstructive sleep apnea by decreasing bulk in the mouth, eliminating invasion of tongue space, and enabling freedom of mandibular movement. When a patient experiences OSA, to call Dr. Albert at Seattle Sleep Medicine. He or one of his staff can discuss how Narval CC can improve obstructive breathing, allowing for a good night’s sleep.
