|Orthoapnea ® is a revolutionary prosthesis which constitutes the most comfortable and effective alternative for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Intra-oral splints alter the position of the lower jaw, the tongue and other structures, in order to guarantee the free flow of air through the upper airway avoiding obstruction during the night.|
Sleep apnea is a serious breathing disorder, potentially deadly, that affects 4% of the population. Patients with untreated apnea have increased mortality rates, being four times more likely to suffer accidents at work and when driving. Due to these factors their quality of life is substantially and worryingly reduced.
Orthoapnea® is a device combining all the advantages of existing oral apnea appliances: lateral movement, mouth opening and precise control of lower jaw advancement. These are the key to a new generation of intra-oral appliances, making Orthoapnea® the best option. It is the only device in the world which advances the lower jaw even further when the patient opens their mouth, thereby increasing the diameter of the airway. Orthoapnea is intricately manufactured to meet the specific needs of every patient to an exceptionally high standard.
The Orthoapnea prothesis of adjustable mandibular advancement is an excellent solution to reduce snoring and sleep apnea.
It has demonstrated the ability to extend the UA at various points, both on the soft palate and the base of the tongue.
|ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER DEVICES
It is a multiple solution to various problems, both mild snoring and sleep apnea.
The advancement of the mandible increases in light of the airway by reducing the tendency of the collapse of the pharynx.
The Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome is characterized by continuous obstruction of the upper airway, impeding normal air flow to the lungs. Patients stop breathing whilst they sleep up to a hundred times in one night. This dramatically reduces the flow of oxygen to vital organs with serious health consequences.
Snoring, which until recently was considered a sign of resting, can be an indicator of apnea, a disorder causing a large number of health problems. The irritating noise which causes annoyance to those around the snorer and distress to the snorer themselves can actually be a sign of a potentially deadly illness.
