Snoring affects over 80 million American adults and for 37 million snoring happens on a regular basis. Snoring can cause daytime sleepiness, more frequent headaches, and lessen the quality of sleep for you and your partner.
An EMA (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) is a custom, acrylic upper and lower sleep appliance that can aid in a more restful sleep if you suffer from snoring or mild/moderate sleep apnea. The EMA uses interchangeable, elastic bands to open the bite by advancing the lower jaw; which results in less restricted airflow during sleep.
The Elastic Mandibular Advancement is noninvasive, comfortable and removable. The interchangeable bands come in 3 different strengths and 5 different lengths so your appliance is fit specifically to you.
If you know that you snore or have symptoms of snoring the EMA appliance may be the right fit for you. Please let us know if you have any further questions or if you’d like to schedule an appointment in our Ogden, Utah office or call us at 801-621-2702.
