New West Dental Lab, a full-service dental laboratory serving dentists nationally for more than 40 years, has added the EndSnorZ Sleep Appliance to its family of mandibular advancement devices (MADs).
Available exclusively from New West, the EndSnorZ Sleep Appliance is a patient-specific device that is adjustable in 0.5 mm increments across a 10 mm range to treat snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea in adults.
“I’m pleased to announce the availability of the EndSnorZ Sleep Appliance,” says New West general manager Hollie Taylor, CDT, in a release. “This device reflects our commitment to collaborating with our dentist customers and innovating the tools and techniques that help deliver the highest possible level of care for dental patients. The new EndSnorZ appliance builds on the latest cutting-edge CAD/CAM processes as well as 3D printing technologies to deliver an exceptional dental experience for both the clinician and patient.”
Upper and lower nightguards of the appliance have the fit, form, and function with which dentists who treat snoring and sleep apnea are familiar. The differences are in the orientation and material for the connector arms. EndSnorZ connector arms work through traction, gently pulling the jaw into position. This traction also tends to hold the mouth closed and prevents the jaw from collapsing during sleep. According to New West, the EndSnorZ appliance encourages closed-mouth, quiet nasal breathing, increases patient comfort, and provides a more restful sleep.
“Success in the practice of dental sleep medicine requires durable materials and precise, predictable fit, form, and function,” says Taylor. “The EndSnorZ appliance fills this requirement.”
The EndSnorZ is priced at $247 and has a two-year MAD warranty.
“This device provides many benefits for dentists interested in growing their practice with oral appliance therapy,” Taylor says.
