What is MicrO2?
MicrO2 is an easy-to-use and comfortable device that safely alleviates snoring and symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. If a patient has been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or snores, the MicrO2 lower jaw advancement device will assist him/her in waking with a better sense of rest and provide the energy needed to enjoy the day.
The MicrO2 is designed to be the smallest and most comfortable custom-made jaw advancement device available. It is intended to offer the most tongue space, as well as the ability to open and close during wear. The MicrO2 device holds the lower jaw in a slightly forward position, thus gently moving the throat tissues away from the back of the throat. This opens the way for airflow and helps reduce snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Only a dentist can provide MicrO2. Specially trained dentists play a key role in screening for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Then, partnering with medical doctors, the MicrO2 is provided to treat those suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea as well as individuals needing an alternative therapy to CPAP.
How does MicrO2 work?
The MicrO2 devices are very easy to use and to care for. They do not require any mechanical adjustments, like turning screws with keys or screwdrivers, or changing positions with elastics. And they don’t require any difficult handling or maintenance instructions.
MicrO2 device is custom made to uniquely fit each individual that it is fabricated for. The device comes in two parts. One device fits over the upper teeth and one over the lower teeth. The device will also have a series of additional Upper or Lower devices; each one made to position the lower jaw to the most effective position. There are no confusing mechanisms to adjust on the actual device. Jaw advancements can be easily achieved by simply removing the current Upper or Lower device and inserting the next Upper or Lower device in the MicrO2 advancing series
