The ProSomnusⓇ MicrO2Ⓡ is just one of the few devices we offer. The appliance can help treat obstructive sleep apnea and snoring, which can be a symptom of sleep apnea but not always. Here is what the appliance can do for you.

The MicrO2 is worn in your mouth each night. It gently pushes your lower jaw forward, so your jaw does not slide back during the night and cause the soft tissues in your throat to collapse and close off your airway. By preventing this collapse, snoring and apneic events can be treated, helping you and your partner sleep without getting disturbed in the middle of the night.

The MicrO2 can also be comfortable to wear. It is made to be smaller than many other appliances, allowing plenty of room for your tongue to rest without feeling crowded. A process called CAD/CAM, which stands for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, is used so the appliance can fit in your mouth correctly and comfortably. If you are concerned about having an appliance with metal in it, then you may appreciate that the MicrO2 is not made with any metal.
