Sleep Apnea

Our extensive range of services even includes treatments for that ‘loud sleeper’ in your family. Klearway™ is a fully-adjustable oral appliance used for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Fabricated of thermoactive acrylic, Klearway™ becomes pliable for easy insertion and conforms securely to the dentition for an excellent fit while significantly decreasing soft tissue and tooth discomfort. Small increments of forward lower jaw advancement are initiated by the patient under the direction of Dr. Pocock; and this helps avoid rapid jaw movements that can cause significant patient discomfort. Once warmed under hot water and inserted, the acrylic resin hardens as it cools to body temperature and firmly affixes itself to both arches. Lateral and vertical jaw movement is permitted which enables the patent to yawn, swallow, and drink water without dislodging the appliance. Prior to the treatment of either snoring or OSA with any oral appliance, a complete assessment by the patient’s physician and/or sleep disorder specialist is very important.
