EMA® (Elastic Mandibular Advancement)
The EMA® (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) is a custom-made removable
intra-oral appliance created for noninvasive treatment of snoring and
obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The appliance is designed to both
advance the lower jaw (mandible) and open the bite to allow for less
restricted airflow during sleep.
EMA appliances help promote a deeper, more
restful sleep by preventing snoring and relieving the symptoms of
obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The EMA does not interfere with
breathing through the mouth, even in cases of congested nasal passages.
The EMA has many options for patient advancement with 5 strap lengths
and 4 different elastic tension options. Non-restricted side-to-side
(lateral) or front-to-back (protrusive) movements of the jaw are
possible while wearing the appliance due to varying elastic bands.
