Sleep Apnea & Snoring Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral Appliance Therapy

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends oral appliances – such as The Silencer – for the treatment of patients suffering from snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea.

Patients with severe sleep apnea should use Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP).  In cases of severe sleep apnea where high pressures make CPAP therapy uncomfortable,  The Silencer may be used alone, or in combination with CPAP to provide a more comfortable therapy.

Why The Silencer?

Through Dr. Halstrom’s own account and years of feedback from sleep apnea and snoring patients, we know there are 2 key components to success:

  1. Function – The Silencer works by gently positioning the lower jaw forward.  The distance forward can be changed  subtly to provide more space in the airway as needed.
  2. Comfort – The patented Halstrom Hinge allows for slight jaw movement while asleep, resulting in comfortable and effective long-term snoring and sleep apnea oral appliance therapy.
