Elastic Mandibular Advancement Appliance (EMA)

Elastic Mandibular Advancement Appliance (EMA)

The EMA® – Custom appliance is a simple, patient-friendly oral appliance created for noninvasive treatment of snoring and OSA. The primary treatment mechanism of opening the bite and gently moving the mandible forward is achieved with the use of interchangeable elastic straps that offer varying degrees of mandibular advancement. The flexibility of these elastic straps provides unsurpassed lateral movement and overall TMJ comfort. The 2 mm thick pressure formed bases offer orthodontic retention (resulting in no tooth movement) and maximum anterior tongue space because there are no projections in the palate.The Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA®) appliance uses elastic force to advance the mandible. Hand plastic trays are pressure formed to the patient”s models and utilize the undercut areas of the teeth for retention. This insures that there will be no movement of the patient”s teeth. Bite planes are used to open the bite. Mandibular advancement is achieved with different length straps. The elastic pull can also be adjusted to suit the patient”s musculature. The straps provide complete lateral movement.The EMA® – Custom is available only to dental professionals
