Obstructive Sleep Apnea Increases the Risk of Serious Health Problems
OSA afflicts over 40 million Americans. Untreated, OSA can lead to heart disease, strokes, excessive daytime sleepiness and diminish overall quality of life.
Myerson’s custom EMA has 4 strap strengths and 9 strap lengths. These 36 different strap combinations give you more control and flexibility when treating OSA, allowing your patients to get the sleep they need to lead full, healthy lives.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances such as EMA as a front line treatment for snoring and sleep apnea.
Simply Life Changing
Dr. Donald E. Frantz invented the EMA appliance in 1993 to treat his own sleep apnea. EMA works by opening the bite and gently advancing the mandible (or jaw) with elastic straps to increase airway space. EMA fits entirely inside the mouth, is comfortable and allows the user to change sleep positions. One can talk and drink water while wearing an EMA, and the elastic straps can easily be changed at home.
EMA is FDA cleared for the treatment of both OSA and snoring, and is only available through dental professionals. EMA elastic straps are not made with natural rubber latex.
