RESPIRE

Respire

The Respire is the best dorsal fin or mono block appliance on the market. The attachment on the appliance is further anterior than on others. Most patients have more room in the buccal vestibule here than in the back of the mouth. With the advancement screw you can advance the lower jaw to a maximum of 5.5 mm.The dorsal fin is positioned directly behind the attachment. When the repositioned dorsal fin engages the stop on the upper, the jaw is pushed forward, producing a more stable appliance.

The patient can open and close while wearing the Respire. This adds comfort by allowing the patient to inhale and exhale more air per breath,

Unlike the strap or hinge appliances, the patient can open and close while wearing this appliance. This adds comfort by allowing the patient to inhale and exhale more air per breath.


EMA

EMA

The EMA (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) uses an elastic strap technique to advance the mandible forward. It has 36 straps that consist of different lengths and strengths to advance the mandible. The flexibility of the straps allow for lateral movement. There is no midline connection with the EMA. This helps the claustrophobic patient.It is an easy appliance on the TMJ are due to the range of the AP straps.

TAP3

TAP3

The TAP3 (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) is a mandibular advancement device. When the appliance is worn, the lower jaw is repositioned forward so that the anatomical structures that cause sleep problems are realigned.  TAP3 prevents the tongue and the soft tissue in the back of the throat from collapsing back and blocking the airway.The TAP3 fits comfortably in the mouth and compact hardware provides more tongue room allowing the lips to close. Interchangeable hooks accommodate Class I, Class II and Class III bites. A “key” gradually adjusts to the forward relationship of the mandible to the maxilla for comfort and position of the jaws.
