Quality Sleep Appliances
OSA has quickly come to the forefront of dentistry. There has never been such a focus on education, diagnosis and treatment. True Function Laboratory is proud to offer several variations of Oral Devices for the treatment of Mild to Moderate OSA. Each with its specific benefits, they all share one common quality: the assurance that you are getting the best. True Function backed quality and service.
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.
Oasys Hinge Appliance
The appliance is made of type 12 polyamide, a resistant biocompatible nylon.
