Thanks to interdisciplinary cooperation with dentists many cases of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea can be treated successfully with the Intraoral Snoring Therapy Appliance (IST® appliance).
The IST® appliance suppresses snoring by moving the lower jaw forward. This measurably reduces the obstruction in the pharyngeal area.
The forward position of the mandible is achieved using vestibular guided telescopes.
This construction allows a controlled protrusion of the lower jaw without impairing the tongue space, to maximize patient acceptance.
