The Moses® Appliance
The Moses® appliance is the most effective snore appliance on the market. This device has improved on the simple MAD designs of the past to incorporate tongue management. It actually activates reflexes to advance the tongue. It lowers elevator muscle activity, reduces clenching, decreasing bruxism. The two part design is extremely comfortable. It allows the patient to close their lips, talk and even drink.
It has been developed by Allen J. Moses DDS, DABCP, DABDSM. He holds a faculty appointment as an assistant professor at Rush University Medical School in the Department of Sleep Disorders. He is a diplomate of both the American Board of Craniofacial Pain and the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.
