At The Columbus Sleep Center, our goal is to not only provide effective sleep apnea treatment, but to make sure it’s always tailor made for each individual patient as well. That’s why Dr. Eric Buck is happy to offer a variety of oral appliances that are manufactured by some of the most trusted names in the field. Our appliances are always fabricated using flexible and durable materials you can trust to last, and thanks to Dr. Buck’s expertise, he’ll ensure that your appliance will have you sleeping like a baby in no time.
Our selection of oral appliances includes:
SomnoDent® appliances are some of the most commonly used across the country, and the reason for that is simple: they work! At our practice, we offer the Somnodent FUSION™, Somnodent FLEX™, and Somnodent SUAD™ appliances. Which one is right for you? We’ll be able to determine that based on your particular needs. SomnoDent® appliances are made using hard plastic with a soft liner and are designed to fit comfortably over the teeth and limit the breakage lower-quality devices usually develop, helping them last much longer.
This is a very small appliance that consists of adjustable telescoping metal tubes attached to a removable, custom-shaped mouthguard. It is very flexible and allows a patient to retain their jaw’s full range of motion, including side to side (most appliances prevent this). In addition to repositioning the jaw to help with sleep apnea, the Herbst Appliance can also be used to address TMJ problems and prevent nighttime teeth grinding. It is also important to note that this is one of the devices we provide that is approved for Medicare patients.
ResMed is the company that makes the well-known Narval™ oral appliance, a lightweight, low profile device that is designed to provide the most comfortable treatment possible. Because of its relatively small size, it fits easily into the mouth and is perfect for those who might have a sensitive gag reflex. It is extremely flexible and made of high-quality plastic that is custom-designed for each patient, allowing them to get the most results with the least amount of treatment possible.
