The recent update comes in response to the growing prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea in the US, which now affects over 25 million adults, according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Millennium Smiles states that, in addition to more effective treatment, its latest oral appliances are designed to promote temporomandibular joint (TMJ) health.
The Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School explains some of the most common symptoms experienced by those with OSA. They include unsettled and/or restless sleep patterns, daytime sleepiness, mood changes and depression, loud snoring, and learning or memory problems. The condition is also associated with chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.
While off-the-shelf oral appliances are now available for OSA, Millennium Smiles explains that these devices can be generic in nature, reducing overall effectiveness. The clinic’s latest treatments are designed to address specific causes of airway blockage, such as nasal obstructions, soft palate collapse, tongue obstruction, or collapse of airways in the throat.
As mentioned, appliances are also fitted to suit each client’s unique mouth and teeth shape. The process involves taking a mold of the patient’s teeth, which allows Millennium Smiles to offer a more comfortable and effective appliance, as well as the ability to make minor adjustments over time.
