TrueHerbst

TrueHerbst Appliance

The True Function Adjustable Herbst Appliance (TrueHerbst) is a simple, patient-friendly treatment solution for snoring and sleep apnea. The TrueHerbst maintains a clear airway by holding the jaw in a forward protrusive position so that it does not fall back during the night and cause the airway to collapse. TrueHerbst is a prescription only appliance that is customized by True Function Laboratory to dentist specific instructions.

The TrueHerbst is available in three mandibular advancement models: The Dual Laminate Appliance and the Acrylic with or without Clasp Appliance.

The Dual Laminate – this model has a soft rubbery surface on the inside of each piece and a hard acrylic surface on the outside without metal clasps for retention. The appliance is held in place by the soft rubbery liner. Patients must have adequate natural undercuts for retention of the Dual Laminate model because retention cannot be increased during treatment, and the appliance cannot be modified to accommodate new tooth restoration or the loss of posterior teeth.

The Acrylic with Clasp or no Clasp – the acrylic with clasp model has several metal ball clasps, which can be adjusted to increase retention on teeth that have insufficient undercuts. The ball clasps can often be modified, should further dental work be performed and adjustments required. For the non clasp model, the patient must have adequate natural undercuts because retention cannot be increased during treatment, and the appliance cannot be modified to accommodate new tooth restorations or the loss of posterior teeth.
