From Patients

"When I was first diagnosed with sleep apnea, I thought that my only option was CPAP therapy. I was so happy when my doctor told me that I could have a dental appliance instead. And I was even happier when I got my SUAD™ Device! With The SUAD™ Device not only was I able to sleep all night but so was my wife since she no longer had to put up with my once uncontrollable snoring. The SUAD™ Device is comfortable and stands up to its word."

Respire Oral Appliance

Respire Oral Appliance

FDA Approved For Both Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The Respire Blue Series is a custom made oral sleep device. It is composed of an upper and a lower component, which are not connected in any way, allowing the jaw to open and close naturally. The dorsal fin holds the jaw in a forward position preventing it from falling back and the airway collapsing.

Respire Oral Appliance

The Respire Blue Series places the jaw in a position that maintains an open airway by preventing the lower jaw from falling back and collapsing the airway. This in turn will allow patients to inhale more air per breath leading to a better nights sleep.

Patient Adjustment

In our office we found adjustments of some appliances are difficult to explain. With the Respire Oral appliance you simply adjust the lower to advance the lower. With the advancement screw you can advance the lower jaw, each turn of the screw is equal in ¼ mm, with a maximum advancement of 5.5mm.

Comfort

The attachment is further anterior than others, we feel that patients have more room in the buccal vestibule here than being in the back of the mouth. Also the patient can open and close their mouth while wearing the appliance. The appliance is open in the front to add comfort by allowing the patient to inhale and exhale more air per breath. The appliance can also be made with a softer layer on the tooth surface to add more comfort.

Less Breakages

Another reason that the attachments are quite forward on the appliance is because there is so much force in the posterior area, this can cause a lot of breakages in an attachment. By moving the attachment forward we found that there is less pressure on the screw, and therefore are fewer breakages.
