Maximum vertical with the lips sealed and nothing to impede the tongue from protruding forward to open the airway.
This classic design has stood the test of time.
MAXIMUM TONGUE SPACE
Loads of room for the tongue
Dr. Moses designed this device to allow the clinician to maximize space for the tongue.
When wearing, your tongue naturally positions itself forward and up against the roof of the mouth. This helps open the airway.
Magic? No, Moses

Th patient can talk or drink while wearing Moses Express. It's very easy to disengage and open your mouth, eliminating the negative "claustrophobic" reaction to some appliances.

Inserting: Always brush teeth prior to using the appliance. Place the upper tray in first, then insert the lower device. Slide the jaw slightly forward and bite down. It should "snap" together.
Wearing: While wearing the device, you will notice good retention on the lower arch. The upper arch will not let your jaw move horizontally, but will easily allow vertical opening.
Removing: Disengage the upper from the lower by opening the jaw. Remove the lower first, then the upper tray. If it is difficult to get the back teeth to touch, chew a piece of sugarless gum until the back teeth touch again. Should only take a few minutes.
Cleaning: After removing, soak the appliance in a denture cleaner (follow package directions), rinse it, pat it dry, and store it away from children and animals. Animals love to chew dental appliances. We recommend Kleenite from Regent labs.
