    Q. What are the best Oral Appliances for me to start with in my practice? I understand that I need to become familiar with several, but where should I start?

    A. It is always good to start with something simple, easy to manage. Starting with a device which doesn’t have a tremendous amount of retention and has a simple method of titration could be a good starting point. This will make everything easier not just for the dentist, but also for the patient. Strap system connecting the lower and upper part of the appliance enables the dentists to take those parts apart and have the patient practice insertion and removal independently prior to connecting the parts. Numbered strap system also makes it easy to keep track of the titration process. Narval would be one of the appliance meeting the criteria laid out above. If you have Cerec and a CBCT unit in your office, OPTISLEEP is an excellent, durable and an all-digital solution which is easy. It is the appliance of choice if you have this technology in your office. ES


    Q. Can I make oral appliances for my patients going thru Invisalign treatment?

    A. Yes. Dentist-prescribed for aligner/Invisalign® therapy, the Aligner Sleep Appliance (ASA)™ is worn with the Invisialign® appliance during sleep to support the lower jaw in a mild forward position, while reducing nighttime snoring and mild-to-moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea in adults. ES
