INTRODUCING NEW HERBST ARMS
Updated images and instructions coming soon!
We are pleased to offer the medicare approved, Respire Pink - Herbst
This warm ergonomic design offers simple adjustment with Herbst telescopic hardware, allowing up to 6mm advancement of the lower jaw. The freedom of lateral and vertical movement offers reduced force on the attachments, resulting in fewer breakages and making this device suitable for a patient who grinds during the night.
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.
Reduced Lingual Coverage
The device is also available with reduced lingual coverage to increase tongue space further.
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.
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.
Each device has a serial number which will also be your invoice number to help identify the device.
