MicroDental Laboratories – MicrO2™ is recognized with the Journal of Dental Technology’s 2015 Readers’ Choice WOW! Award

San Francisco, CA, December 1, 2015 – NADL’s Journal of Dental Technology Readers have recognized MicroDental’s MicrO2 Sleep Device the WOW! award. MicrO2 is the first CAD/CAM milled oral appliance for treating snoring and mild to moderate Sleep Apnea. The MicrO2 design and manufacturing process is an important advancement in sleep device production.
A WOW! product is a dental laboratory product or service that saves time and money while improving quality. The MicrO2 Sleep Device was peer-nominated and reviewed by a panel of industry experts. “The products and services recognized this year indicate that the dental laboratory industry continues to be in a period of significant change and the marketplace is responding with high-quality solutions that will allow our community to remain profitable and competitive,” said Harold Burdette, Jr., CDT, president of NADL.
It’s estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from Sleep Apnea, and technology will need to help dental laboratories meet demand while maintaining the quality and success of the treatment. What makes the MicrO2 Sleep Device unique is its digital workflow and design that meets this need. Benefits such as time saved with efficient CAD/CAM production, money saved through a low remake rate from precision milling, and improved quality with controlled-cured PMMA pucks that are durable and consistent set the MicrO2 apart.
The advantage of MicrO2 over other devices is a unique approach to titration that is intended to make the device easier to use for the dentist and the patient. Its comfortable profile and ease of use have positioned the MicrO2 Sleep Device as a popular choice amongst doctors and patients to treat OSA, and as an exciting new alternative to CPAP Therapy.
“The MicrO2 design solves problems for me—it’s small, tough, and reliable. Having no tiny adjustment mechanism is helpful for some patients—the easy way to bring the jaw forward and keep the airway open,” states Dr. Steve Carstensen, DDS, Diplomate, ABDSM, of Bellevue, Washington.
“Developed by MicroDental and experts in Dental Sleep Medicine, the MicrO2 was engineered to solve the most common issues associated with sleep devices on the market,” noted David Kuhns, PhD, Sr. Director of Product Development & Technical Sales at MicroDental. “Many of our partner dentists have noted that patients find the MicrO2 more comfortable, compact, and easy-to-use, which may improve compliance and overall treatment satisfaction for the patient.”
MicrO2 exclusively helps dental laboratories meet the rising demand of sleep devices by partnering with MicroDental Laboratories as a Certified MicrO2 Sleep Device provider. It also allows access to an engineered digital device that delivers the exact prescription via a scalable and transferrable low cost digital workflow.
