ProSomnus® Sleep Technologies Product Platform Takes Aim at Key Oral Appliance Side Effects

San Francisco, CA, July 31, 2018 – Today, ProSomnus Sleep Technologies announces acceptance and presentation of evidence-based research on Oral Appliance Therapy as presented at the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine 27th Annual Meeting held June 1-3, 2018 in Baltimore, MD. ProSomnus supported research that resulted in study data demonstrating no significant tooth movement in 2.3 years.

The AADSM published a guidance paper on Management of Side Effects(1) and called out “unwanted tooth movement” as the most common side effect in oral appliance therapy and calls for clinicians to “to minimize the side effects of OAT”. Norrhem, Nemeczek and Marklund(2) reported the benefits of a rigid appliance over a flexible appliance in reducing tooth movement. The ProSomnus research further confirms the benefit of a rigid appliance to control the side effect of unwanted tooth movement.

The poster presented, “Tooth movement and bite changes for a hard-acrylic sleep appliance; 2-year results using the ProSomnus® MicrO2® Sleep Appliance”. Nikola Vranjes, DDS; Gene Santucci, DDS; Karen Schulze, PhD, ; David Kuhns, PhD; Allen Khai; Janelle Brown. Models and measurements were made independently at the Orthodontic department at the University of the Pacific.
