Petaluma dental practice offers DNA Appliance System for permanent improvement of sleep apnea and snoring
The DNA Appliance System, or Daytime-Nighttime Appliance System, is a treatment device that is available at the biological and holistic practice of Dental Care and Wellness of Sonoma County. At her Petaluma practice, Dr. Jurina Smida uses the latest technology and testing to understand and treat patients’ dental care needs with consideration of the wellbeing of the whole body. The DNA Appliance is one such device that works naturally to make permanent adjustments to the patient’s oral structure for a healthier outcome.
This device is designed to change alignment of the oral structure to provide relief for problems such as snoring and sleep apnea. It is also used to align teeth and improve facial appearance with its unique design. Although other oral devices exist to help patients with snoring and sleep apnea, the DNA Appliance differs because it treats the condition and changes the structure positively and permanently over time. The nonsurgical treatment actually stimulates bone growth to deliver the permanency of the results.
The device works by expanding the upper arch of teeth, and this increases the nasal cavity size, as well. The upper arch widens, the lower jaw shifts forward, and pulls the tongue and soft tissues along, as well. This increases the airway opening and allows the patient to breathe easier. This results in improvement of snoring and sleep apnea symptoms. The patented DNA appliance uses the kinetic energy of wires and springs to impact the oral structure of the patient when worn at night. Corrections to the facial structure have been experienced in some patients in as little as 90 days.
As the airway is opened up, this change delivers a pleasing balance to the patient’s facial features, as well. The lift experienced has been compared to effects achieved with some injectables and fillers, but the effects are permanent with the DNA Appliance. Some patients are able to experience relief from TMJ issues and headaches due to the realignment that is provided with this device.
