Nash Dental Lab provides your practice with a clinically proven, cost effective treatment option for your patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) or snoring concerns. Our EMA appliance is FDA Cleared, easily adjustable to fit a wide range of patients and extremely comfortable for maximum compliance.
During sleep, the bodys muscles relax causing the soft tissue of the airway to collapse, obstructing breathing. The body reacts to the closure of the airway by disrupting deep sleep enough to start breathing again. This deprives the sufferer of getting a “good Nights sleep”.
Obstructive sleep apnea affects over 40 million Americans. Untreated, OSA can lead to heart disease, stroke and excessive daytime sleepiness. Did you know that over 100,000 people are killed or injured each year in crashes attributed to the driver falling asleep at the wheel?
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances such as EMA as a frontline of treatment for OSA and snoring. What people like about oral appliances is that they are worn entirely intraorally, they do not use electricity or make noise (which can bother a sleep partner) and are easily portable. These appliances also allow the wearer to change sleep positions easily.
“For years I had accepted chronic fatigue as a natural progression of aging, not realizing that the lack of restful sleep was the real problem. I still remember vividly the first morning after I wore my EMA. It was the best nights sleep Id had in years!”
