For noninvasive treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is when there is a temporary stop in breathing during sleep. People with sleep apnea will often snore or awake gasping for breath. These disturbances may occur repeatedly, resulting in restless sleep and daytime drowsiness. Sleep Apnea can cause serious health issues including increased blood pressure and the restriction of oxygen to the brain and blood stream.
The EMA snore guard is an affordable way to treat Sleep Apnea and is considered to be less expensive than other prescription oral appliances. The EMA opens the bite and gently moves the mandible (lower jaw) forward and this is achieved using interchangeable elastic straps that offer varying degrees of mandibular (lower jaw) advancement. By holding the mandible (lower jaw) forward, the snore guard opens your bite (clears the airway) which allows for less restricted airflow during sleep to help reduce snoring and improve your overall breathing.
The EMA snore guard is not for those who have severe bruxism (grinding), teeth that are mobile, and anyone who is considered edentulous (without teeth).
