The EMA Appliance

There are approximately one hundred FDA approved dental devices for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. After treating thousands of sleep apnea patients the ideal attributes of an oral appliance became apparent.

1. The device must be comfortable to use and it must not injure the TMJ or muscles.

2. Adjustment of the jaw position must be easily and accurately accomplished.

3. The appliance must have a minimum of bulk so as not to impinge on the tongue.

The EMA appliance developed by Dr. Donald Frantz fulfills these criteria better than any other device. Furthermore, follow-up sleep studies with the EMA have had a higher sucess rate than other devices tested.
