Fixed Temporary Appliance
The Apinator™ is an innovative, dual-layer oral mouthpiece for the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea and snoring.
MAXIMUM TONGUE SPACE
It's all in the Bite
Dr. Moses designed this device to allow the clinician to maximize space for the tongue. The recommended bite technique is to open the mouth as far as possible while still achieving comfortable lip seal.
By using this technique, the horizontal protrusion is much less than normal. Creating an effective and pleasant device.
PROMOTE NASAL BREATHING
Great Lip Seal is Key
Breathing in and out through the nose helps us take fuller, deeper breaths, which stimulates the lower lung to distribute greater amounts of oxygen throughout the body.
Humidify and Clean the air before it enters the lungs.
COMFORT = COMPLIANCE
Not Locked Together
The appliance only works if you wear it. Therefore, comfort is particularly important.
Th patient can talk or drink while wearing The Moses. It's very easy to disengage and open your mouth, eliminating the negative "claustrophobic" reaction to some appliances.
