NORAD – Alternative Treatments

Nocturnal ORal Airway Dilator

The NORAD is an FDA approved oral appliance for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. It is a “boil & bite” appliance which means it can be fit and delivered to a patient immediately without waiting for lab fabrication. This makes it an ideal temporary appliance to use when patients need to undergo dental work or if they’ve lost or damaged their existing appliance. The strong construction of the NORAD will hold up to many months and even years of use making this boil & bite appliance even more versitile.

Many of the features found on the NORAD have never been available in a boil & bite appliance before and some are not even available on much more expensive lab fabricated appliances.

Some of the features and benefits include:

* Boil & Bite thermal material – immediate chairside fabrication and delivery
* No waiting for lab fabrication
* Ideal for use as a temporary appliance
* Unlimited lateral mobility
* Adjustable vertical and protrusive positions
* Ability to open vertical with appliance in place
* Very good retention
* Low profile (minimum vertical just 5mm)
