Dental Sleep Medicine / Snoring
EMA Snore Guard
TAP 3 Elite
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a debilitating sleep-related breathing disorder defined as a cessation of breathing for 10 seconds. During sleep, the body's muscles relax causing the soft tissue of the airway to collapse, obstructing the airway. The body reacts to the closure of the airway by disrupting deep sleep enough to start breathing again, but deprives the sufferer of getting a " good night's sleep ". The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances such as the EMA or Tap 3 Elite, as a front line of treatment for snoring and mild sleep apnea, and or where CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is not prescribed as needed. The EMA is FDA approved for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.
