Calgary, AB – June 4, 2015 – The Aurum Group® and Space Maintainers Canada are pleased to announce the latest FDA-approved innovations from SomnoMed, the global leader in COAT™ (Continuous Open Airway Therapy): SomnoDent Herbst Advance™ and SomnoDent Fusion™. These two new innovative options join with the rest of the proven SomnoDent* product line: Flex, G2, Classic, Herbst, and Air.
SomnoDent Herbst Advance™- Visual Calibration Indicator
Available in two models (Classic and Flex), The SomnoDent Herbst Advance™ is the first and only intraoral device featuring an easily viewable Plus “+” calibration indicator showing direction of advancement, giving clinicians and patients greater control over OSA therapy. Asymmetry in titration can be a thing of the past – the visual calibration indicator tells you exactly how far the device has been advanced from its start point. Especially when made with proprietary SMH BFlex, the SomnoDent Herbst Advance features a hinge mechanism that is more comfortable in the patient’s mouth; making it easier to remain compliant. With an 8mm range of calibration, chair time is reduced due to minimal adjustment needed and ensuring patients’ continuous therapeutic efficacy.
SomnoDent Fusion™ – Ultimate Calibration FlexibilityThe new patented SomnoDent Fusion™ “fuses” wing and screw calibration technology together in one device, offering longer titration. The calibration flexibility offered in the SomnoDent Fusion means that it does not have to be reset as frequently, and less resets means your patients won’t be without their device during manufacturer adjustments. With exchangeable device wings that are closer to the occlusal surface, patients experience more room in their mouths and less bulk! Along with the flexibility in adjustment, the SomnoDent Fusion provides an 8.5mm advancement – longer than most other dorsal fin oral devices – and quick advancement with interchangeable wings and fine screw adjustments at .1mm increments. The SomnoDent Fusion can also be made with proprietary SMH BFlex material, which creates greater comfort for your patients. Ultimately, the SomnoDent Fusion saves your office time and money with its drop-in fit, along with less device adjustments afterwards.
