Respire Pink Micro
Why choose the Pink Micro
Respire have designed a device which uses arms almost half the size of the regular herbst arm. Many female patients and older patients with small mouths can't tolerate the regular herbst arms, so the Respire Pink Micro provides a solution to these patients. The advancement in the arms is an initial 3mm. Once the 3mm has been reached, the doctor has the option to advance further using the anterior fixing element.
The appliance is open in the front to add comfort by increasing the tongue space allowing the patient to inhale and exhale more air per breath. We can also make the appliance with a softer layer on the tooth surface to add more comfort
An anterior ramp can be added for patients with TMJ discomfort. This option eliminates contact in the posterior of the device and can also help reduce forces on the TMJ.
Elastic hooks can also be added to the device to help guide the jaw back to desired position during the night. This is often used in patients who sleep on their back and have a tendency to sleep with their mouth open
One of the main benefits of the Pink EF device is that it is Medicare Approved. This allows you to offer your services to a group of people that would not be open to you normally.
Respire offers a 1 year warranty on our Pink EF device. We believe you will never need to use it but for your peace of mind it will always be there for you to use.
