Oral Appliance Therapy for Sleep Apnea: The ProSomnus PH
ProSomnus PH Oral Appliance Review
This appliance is a ProSomnus PH with P-H standing for Precision Herbst. The mechanism of how this appliance works is it has these little arms on the side that prevent that mandible from collapsing. Our oral appliances are all custom milled, so they fit real snug in the teeth and we can make them pretty small so the patients find them very comfortable.
We like the PH, especially for our Medicare patients, because Medicare has certain criteria that these appliances need to meet in order for them to be covered. So this patient has Medicare, and we are using this to help treat this obstructive sleep apnea. We have these arms on the side here, and the appliance can’t drift past a certain point. If we need to advance it, we adjust another here on the side and it moves it backwards so that the stopping point is further back.
