The Dorsal Appliance
The Dorsal Appliance is a device that resembles a custom fitted mouth guard. It keeps your airway open and protected, eliminating snoring and sleep apnoea episodes.
The unique Dorsal Fin is positioned in a direction facing the back of the mouth, which allows forward, side-to-side and up-and-down movement whilst you are awake or semiconscious. Whilst allowing considerable movement, it fully captures the lower jaw into the correct position that your dentist has designed it to, allowing you to fall into deep sleep. The fin has a binding effect that ensures your lower jaw does not rotate open.
Your dentist will place your custom-made appliance in hot water at the first fitting to ensure a good fit. If any adjustments are required, you should return your appliance to your dentist.
For any questions, call your dentist.
