ProSomnus® Sleep Technologies
ProSomnus is a line of dental appliances that are used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. The main characteristic of this type of sleep disorder are pauses in breathing during the sleep cycle with episodes of gasping for air and waking up throughout the night. The disorder occurs as the tongue and soft palate relax and collapse back into the throat, blocking the airway. This results in oxygen deprivation and can cause serious health problems over time.
By gently moving the lower jaw forward, ProSomnus appliances open up the airway and allow patients to breathe more easily during sleep. ProSomnus has been shown to be effective in treating both mild and severe cases of obstructive sleep apnea and can also help to reduce symptoms associated with the condition – such as daytime fatigue, headaches, irritability, and snoring. Additionally, the appliances are made from medical-grade materials and are custom-fit to each patient for maximum comfort and effectiveness.
Reveal® Clear Aligners
Reveal clear aligners are an orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces that can be suitably worn by both adults and teenagers. These clear aligners are made from thin, flexible plastic that’s practically invisible when worn, and they’re actually among the clearest aligners available on the market today. One of the many fantastic appeals to Reveal aligners is that they are much more comfortable than metal braces, as the smooth plastic does not irritate the gums and cheeks. Reveal’s clear aligners are also removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, brush and floss as usual.
- To begin the process, patients will be provided with a series of multiple aligners that they will need to wear for at least 22 hours per day.
- After roughly two weeks, it will be time to progress to the next aligner in the series.
- Reveal works by exerting slight pressure on the teeth through the use of tight-fitting aligners. With consistent pressure along the smile arch, teeth are easily guided into the correct position.
- As each aligner is worn, it will gradually shift your teeth until the desired outcome is reached.
The entire process is supervised by our dental team, ensuring that your smile progresses right on track and turns out just the way you want.
Overall, the Reveal system caters to the aesthetics, comfort, and orthodontic needs of every patient, so we’re confident it will inspire patients to take the first step towards smile straightening and truly enjoy the journey.
