The Herbst appliance is a small acrylic device which works by fitting on the upper and lower teeth and is connected by thin, metal extension arms on each side to slightly position the. Lower jaw forward. While wearing this appliance, a patient will have no restriction of movement, allowing them to speak and drink like normal.
The ProSomnus® brand offers oral appliances which are comfortable, unobtrusive, and strong. While a CPAP machine operates by holding your airway open with air pressure, these appliances and others like them work by gently holding the jaw in a position that keeps the soft tissues from blocking your airway. Benefits of the ProSomnus® include having options for a completely metal-free device, improved device strength, a three-year warranty, and a fast turnaround time.
