Treatment for Snoring

An estimated 80 million people in North America snore. Taking into account the snorer's spouse and children, as many as 160 million people are negatively affected by snoring. Snoring not only interrupts your sleep cycle, it can also be a symptom of a condition called sleep apnea. Fortunately, there are cost-effective oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea that Dr. Jackson can prescribe to you.

Accu-Fit Adjustable Herbst Appliance

Fits first time, everytime! The Accu-Fit design is the newest device added to the family of sleep appliances for treating patients with sleep apnea. The unique thermal acrylic liner allows the appliance to fit at the first delivery appointment without acrylic or wire adjustments. The Accu-Fit design is ideal for patients who will require future dental work (restorations, crowns or bridges). The new design eliminates costly remakes after dental work. The thermal acrylic liner is remolded in hot water (160 degrees) to fit the patient’s arch after dental restorations. *Patent Pending

The adjustable Herbst® is a two piece construction held together by two adjustment mechanisms on the buccal or outer area of the upper and lower appliance. The adjustment mechanisms are designed for the doctor to incrementally advance the mandible to the desired position. This appliance is desirable for the patient that wants a minimal amount of acrylic to preserve as much tongue space and would like the adjustment capability.
