1. Customize the titration
Titration adjustments of the treatment are performed through the exchange of lower splints resulting in progressive mandibular advancement. The stepwise advancement depends on the sequence estimated by the doctor, after due evaluation of the patient’s protrusive capacity from the Starting Point. The range of advancement will be defined by the maximal comfortable protrusion position.
Different titration sequences are available. The doctor may choose among predefined sequences with regular degree of advancement between splints and/or define customized advancement levels attending to the needs of each patient.
2. Personalization of lateral movements
Each patient has a different range of mandibular movement. The doctor has the possibility to define a certain range of laterality, avoiding potential temporomandibular joint problems and muscular tensions.
3. Personalization of mouth opening
NOA allows the adjustment and control of mandibular opening, since excessive opening may cause the upper airway of the patient to narrow.
4. Personalization of frontal opening
The frontal sector of the device may present an opening to favor the entrance of air in occlusion. It is an optional feature that the doctor may choose to include after due assessment of the patient’s physiological and respiratory characteristics.
