Maximum strength, with minimal bulk.
The Endurance Framework (EF) in the Respire Pink provide an extremely strong framework using Wironit Chrome cobalt. By using this material it allows Respire to keep the lingual surface much thinner than can be achieved with any acrylic material. This maximizes the tongue space in the device and is carried through to the anterior portion.The opening in the anterior is one of the biggest benefits to the device as no acrylic is used creating as much space as possible for the tongue.
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.
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.
