Easy to Wear
ProSomnus devices are prescribed by a physician and custom fit by a sleep dentist. These oral appliances increase the size of the upper airway by gently holding the jaw forward, thus reducing the air resistance that leads to sleep apnea and snoring.
Designed specifically for you to be discreet, travel friendly and comfortable. While wearing ProSomnus devices you can drink water, easily communicate and use the restroom with no cumbersome equipment or loud machines.
About ProSomnus Sleep Technologies
ProSomnus® Sleep Technologies is a medical device manufacturer that will custom make your FDA cleared sleep device here in the USA. ProSomnus uses the latest Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to consider your unique anatomy, dentition and patient needs as determined by a certified ProSomnus sleep dentist. ProSomnus works closely with your sleep dentist to create a custom device so you can be treated with greater efficiency and effectiveness.
Ready to improve
Wearing the ProSomnus appliance (like a mouthguard for your upper and lower jaw) holds your lower jaw gently forward and opens the airway in the back of your throat. This makes it way less likely that the air rippling through the partially closed airway makes a noise (SNORING) and your breathing flows more easily. Most snorers have sleep apnea, but a few do not. This treatment almost always solves the snoring problem very quickly…as well as sleep apnea. Kind of like a 2 for 1 treatment.
This process has been advantaged for you and your insurance coverage. A team of in network multidisciplinary physicians will oversee the testing and telemedicine consultations on your behalf and a ProSomnus Certified Dentist will fit your appliance.
Snoring is the vibration in the back of your throat resulting in sounds due to obstructed air movement while sleeping. In some cases, the sound may be soft, but in most cases, it can be loud and unpleasant. Snoring during sleep is often a sign, or first alarm, of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a very serious medical condition.
Snoring does not mean for certain you have OSA but is so highly associated with Sleep Apnea that a test is usually recommended to rule in or out this serious disease.
Yes, most likely, patients often report their snoring is relieved when being treated for OSA right away! IF you do not have OSA as determined by a sleep study, the physician can provide options for treating your snoring.
Snoring, if coincident with sleep apnea, has been correlated with heart disease and heart attack (23 times more likely), and Stroke (4 times more likely) and several other serious health conditions (arrythmia, adult onset diabetes, hypertension, depression, cognitive issues)
Please encourage your partner to get help. If one partner has a problem such as snoring or sleep apnea (a condition when breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep), it’s a good chance his/her bedmate will be disturbed. One study found that when snorers’ symptoms were treated, their partners’ sleep efficiency (i.e. how much they’re actually sleeping and not just lying in bed) increased by 13 percent—even if the partner had gotten used to the snoring over time.
