Versatility with the Adjustable TheraSnore allows you to have the control to make adjustments for comfort and effectiveness while the patient is in your office. It is available in three different arch sizes and designed from a material that is easy to customize to your patients’ comfort.

How using the Adjustable TheraSnore oral appliance can benefit both you and your patients.

Growing revenues and increasing efficiency in your practice are goals every office has; how you go about achieving these goals can include a variety of methods and products.

For example, the dental sleep medicine field is one of the fastest growing in the industry and has shown to be a profitable and tangible way to increase your bottom line. There are more options than ever before in the products available for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Selecting a product that can achieve your practice goals and meets the needs of your patients is essential.

If you are familiar with oral appliances that treat snoring and OSA, you probably know they all work on the same premise of advancing the mandible to open the airway. The market provides a variety of designs, styles and materials to choose from that meet this premise though this also means there are a variety of costs associated, too. Keep your bottom line in mind when adding a treatment for snoring and OSA, and consider comparing costs and available options that directly affect your bottom line to help you select the best product.

Adjustable TheraSnore


The Adjustable TheraSnore oral appliance, like other appliances, is designed to hold the mandible in a slightly protrusive position to help keep the airway open. This appliance is highly effective in treating mild to moderate OSA and simple snoring; it is also highly cost-effective.

Because so many appliances on the market today are similar in function, the Adjustable TheraSnore stands out in other areas, such as affordability and versatility. Without the need to have impressions or models to make the Adjustable TheraSnore, there is no lab fee. By fitting the Adjustable TheraSnore in your office and allowing the patient to take home his or her appliance the same day he or she is fit, you decrease costs that can be associated with laboratories and additional follow-up visits and wait times.

Versatility with the Adjustable TheraSnore allows you to have the control to make adjustments for comfort and effectiveness while the patient is in your office. It is available in three different arch sizes and designed from a material that is easy to customize to your patients’ comfort. Also beneficial is that should adjustments be needed in the amount of protrusion for efficacy, the adjustment is made without needing to completely refit the appliance. Simply separate the two trays and move the lower tray to the next desired setting then snap the trays back together. You do not need to completely refit the appliance. It is also a back-up option for patients who are on CPAP or need an interim appliance due to its affordability.

When it comes to your bottom line, using a product like the Adjustable TheraSnore that is not only effective but also affordable and easy to fabricate in your office helps you decrease outside costs and can increase the number of patients you see for the treatment of snoring and OSA. Simply fitting just two to four patients a week with the appliance can  generate a higher percentage of additional income that originally was being lost to lab fees.
