Snore and sleep apnea
Does your partner complain about your snore? Are you tired when you get up and do you have the sensation of having slept badly? Are you frequently tired during the day? Are you usually tired when you drive? Are you exhausted during the day and do you lose memory?
If you have one or more of these symptoms, it is possible that you suffer from sleep disorder known very often as RONCOPATHY or snore illness.
Being specialists in orthodontics, we are privileged to treat these nuisances and sometimes dangerous complaints.
We study each case particularly and we use intrabuccal apparatus made to measure, designed and made in our laboratory according to a method we have patented.
How does it work?
It is a simple apparatus which we named MORFEO (MORPHEOS), in honor to the mythological God of the sleep, and it is patented (protected by the Office for Patents and Brands with the number U201100347).
It consists of two thin transparent sheets or splints, adapting to the upper and lower teeth, connected with small elastics which tend to move forward the jaw, keeping the mouth closed (and breathing through the nose) when the person is sleeping or relaxing.
They are very inexpensive braces. They are simple, comfortable and easy to use. Very effective in light and restrained cases, or when the patient does not tolerate the respiratory compressor (CPAP), or when the patient cannot use it (travelling, excursions).
