The Silencer is an articulated elastomeric mandibular advancemant appliance. This dental device is designed to allow the advancement of the mandible through a controlled range of forward movement, while at the same time, allowing for a limited amount of vertical and lateral movement of the mandible. This appliance has proven extremely effective in treating snoring and sleep apnea.

There are three component materials in the Silencer. The body of the
appliance is constructed of elastomer, a pliable material which offers the patient a much greater degree of comfort than harder acrylic materials. For additional support, to the dentition as well as the Tempo-Mandibular Joint, hard acrylic "bite pads" are placed in the molar regions. A commercially pure titanium articulating component grants the appliance the many adjustment characteristics that make the Silencer unique - kind to the tissues, the teeth, and the Tempo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ).

Custom appliance is a simple, patient-friendly oral appliance created for noninvasive treatment of snoring and OSA. The primary treatment mechanism of opening the bite and gently moving the mandible forward is achieved with the use of interchangeable elastic straps that offer varying degrees of mandibular advancement. The flexibility of these elastic straps provides unsurpassed lateral movement and overall TMJ comfort. The 2

mm thick pressure formed bases offer orthodontic retention (resulting in no tooth movement) and maximum anterior tongue space because there are no projections in the palate.
