From Patients

"With my SUAD™ Device, I can sleep throughout the whole night, comfortably and soundlessly. I forgot to use my SUAD™ Device once and I woke up feeling absolutely horrible! It is amazing what such a small appliance can do. It works wonders!"

Oral Appliance Selection

Seattle Sleep Medicine is unique in offering a variety of oral appliances to better meet your individual needs, helping you achieve a restful, quiet sleep. Dr. Albert has years of hands on experience in treating snoring and sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. He will provide education about your problem, and present you with possible solutions.

 

Individual factors that Dr. Albert will consider in suggesting a specific oral appliance:

  • Severity of sleep apnea
  • Patient's bite
  • Jaw structure
  • Size of tongue and soft palate
  • Teeth clinching or grinding
  • Health of teeth and gums
  • Jaw range of motion

Dr. Albert has a variety of sleep apnea appliances from which to choose, depending on your particular needs. Following are examples of some of the appliances Dr. Albert may choose from:

Narval CC

Narval CC is a customized device with an innovative design that uses advanced computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) technology.

TAP®3

This device can be adjusted by the patient or Dr. Albert while in the mouth. Most patients experience immediate results, with relief the very first night. The TAP3 is easy to tolerate. Nine in ten patients wear the device all night, every night.

SUAD

The SUAD device consists of acrylic, reinforced by a metal framework. The position is adjusted by a piston on the cheek side of the mouth. This device allows the jaw freedom of movement. Therefore, it is frequently used for patients who tend to grind their teeth.

SomnoDent

This is an oral appliance often used for patients with simple snoring as well as mild to moderate sleep apnea. It may be beneficial for patients with a narrow arch and provides a little more room for the tongue.

Respire

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.
