Glidewell Dental recently introduced the Oasys Hinge Appliance, which treats mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The mandibular advancement device is the newest member of the company’s sleep therapy appliances that includes Silent Nite, EMA and TAP.
The Oasys Hinge Appliance is designed to gently shift the lower jaw forward during sleep, which activates the airway muscles and ligaments to prevent the airway from collapsing, according to a press release.
The device is custom-made for each patient, allowing for maximum comfort.
The appliance is micro-adjustable (0.25 mm increments), with up to 10 mm of advancement based on the patient's needs. The device’s telescope-style hinge allows for natural jaw movement and can be adjusted chairside or at home.
The oral sleep appliance is Medicare and PDAC (Pricing, Data Analysis and Coding) cleared under code E0486. Patients with Medicare insurance qualify for reimbursement.
