SLEEP APNEA IN TAMPA, FL
At Your Desired Smile, our innovative solutions provide natural ways for the body to improve snoring and sleep apnea in adults, as well as tooth alignment and facial appearance, using the concepts of Pneumopedics® and Craniofacial Epigenetics. These novel protocols, including Epigenetic orthopedics first pioneered by Dr. Dave Singh, are painless and do not use surgery, drugs or injections.
Typically, oral appliances used to manage snoring and sleep apnea are mandibular advancement devices that simply protrude the lower jaw. These devices are worn over a lifetime, and do not address the underlying etiology of the condition. In contrast, we advocate upper airway remodeling or Pneumopedics® to re-develop the airway so that underlying sleep apnea can be resolved in some mild and moderate cases.
Our biomimetic technique is different because instead of simply repositioning the mandible, our patented, FDA-registered Daytime-Nighttime Appliance® system (or DNA appliance®), which is worn during the evening and at night, allows the body to gently increase the size of the upper jaw and increase the volume of the nasal airway, sometimes to the extent that the underlying issues are completely eliminated. In addition, our FDA-cleared, patented, mandibular Repositioning-Nighttime Appliance® (or mRNA appliance®) is a biomimetic oral appliance that provides combined maxillo-mandibular correction. The mRNA appliance is worn at night, and this allows the body to reposition the mandible while gently redeveloping the midface, as well as remodeling the upper airway in adults, while correcting the positions of the teeth into a more natural position.
Our diagnostic support and treatment solutions provide the tools for natural jaw development and upper airway remodeling through craniofacial enhancement. In addition, the DNA appliance®protocols are effective in addressing issues such as TMD and headaches in both adults and children painlessly without using surgery, drugs or injections.
