How does the Oventus O2Vent oral appliance work?
- The Oventus O2Vent works in two different ways:
Firstly, all Oventus oral appliances are adjustable.This means that over time the lower jaw will be slowly positioned forward to open the airway, to decrease or eliminate apnea episodes while sleeping. This adjustment is made with the help of your healthcare practitioner. Once the best jaw position is found for you, the O2Vent will be set at this position.
- Secondly, all Oventus oral appliances are made with a custom airway which allows for airflow even when your nose is blocked. This will allow you to breathe through your nose when you can do so without any issues. Should any nasal congestion and/or obstruction occur you can switch to mouth breathing.The airway allows for uninterrupted breathing even in the presence of nasal obstruction. This allows you to enjoy a quality sleep and feel refreshed in the morning.
