Oasys Hinge Appliance
Glidewell Dental has released a new mandibular advancement device, the Oasys Hinge Appliance. This oral sleep appliance is Medicare- and PDAC (pricing, data analysis and coding)-cleared under Code E0486 to treat patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The appliance is the latest addition to the company’s family of sleep therapy appliances.
The appliance is designed to gently shift the lower jaw forward during sleep, which activates the airway muscles and ligaments to prevent the airway from collapsing. It is custom-made for each patient for maximum comfort throughout the night. It’s microadjustable (0.25mm increments), with up to 10mm of advancement based on the patient’s needs. The telescope-style hinge allows for natural jaw movement and can be adjusted chairside or at home, making it both doctor- and patient-friendly.
