West Orange, NJ (PRWEB) July 31, 2015
With the recent buzz surrounding the dangers of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the growing number of individuals who remain undiagnosed, treatment options for patients are becoming more prevalent than ever before. As millions of Americans continue to shy away from traditional CPAP therapy due to its overall lack of comfort and highly invasive nature, oral appliances provided by dentists are gaining extreme popularity.
Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs) move the lower jaw forward further opening the upper airway to allow for easy breathing. Of the many MADs on the market today, the Oravan device, manufactured by OravanOSA, has captured the attention of many in the sleep industry. Last week, Sleep Review Magazine introduced the device to its readers as an FDA cleared and patented dorsal fin appliance for treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. It’s the only device on the market with a true open anterior design featuring no anterior coverage, promoting extremely high patient compliance rates. The company also recently redesigned the fins of the device to make them less bulky, maximizing comfort levels for the patient.
“The feedback we’ve received from patients, dentists, sleep specialists, and pulmonologists has been incredible. Not only are we seeing amazing efficacy rates, but the patient compliance and overall comfort of the device is what continues to distinguish itself from the other MADs on the market today,” Daniel Stein, Co-Founder and CEO of OravanOSA said.
Other benefits of the Oravan include natural tongue protrusion, no interference with anterior dental cosmetic work, and the patient’s ability to open and close their mouth and lips, speak clearly, yawn and drink.
The inventor of the device, an experienced sleep dentist, said, “After many years of practicing sleep medicine, I was frustrated with the lack of comfort my patients were facing as well as the amount of extra clinical chair time for having to refit and readjust other appliances. I’ve designed the Oravan to promote the highest level of comfort while ensuring an easy delivery of the device.”
Once a patient has been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it is best that they contact a qualified sleep dentist to get started with Oravan treatment. For additional information on the Oravan and to learn how a doctor can provide an Oravan for their patients, visit http://www.OravanOSA.com.
