What is the range of lower jaw positioning with the O2Vent Optima?
There are 9 different connector band lengths that alter the jaw position, ranging from 13mm to 21 mm.
Connector bands are attached to lugs on either side of the device for lower jaw positioning. Using proprietary Oventus software, the placement of the lugs is calculated and customized for each patient, in such a way that they always correspond with the ideal starting titration (utilizing the 19mm length bands). This placement is typically 50%-70% protrusion. Starting at this point allows the clinician to titrate the mandible up to 6mm forward to the 13mm connector band and/or to titrate the mandible up to 2mm backwards to the 21mm connector band.
