What makes the Aer Dorsal so good?

The Aer Dorsal is a custom oral mouthpiece that is a simple, effective treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), and bruxism.

The appliance is digitally designed and laser 3D printed, ensuring an accurate fit every time. Thanks to its sleek, thin design, this oral device is comfortable to wear and easy to keep clean.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Aer Dorsal repositions the lower jaw with its patented fin technology.

As a result, the hyoid bone (located at the base of the tongue) is moved forward, allowing the airway to remain open.

Additionally, use of the Aer Dorsal is supported by the Aer Shield, which uses negative pressure to hold the tongue in the roof of the mouth.

The tongue posture shield adds the myofunctional aspect to our oral appliance therapy.

The tongue posture shield adds the myofunctional aspect to our oral appliance therapy.

Every Aer Dorsal is unique: a personal sleep 'mouth-guard' tailored to your mouth. Before the device is made, your dentist or sleep technician will assess your airway to find the best position for your lower jaw. The Aer Dorsal will be manufactured according to this assessment so that your airway remains open while you sleep.

WHY IS THE AER DORSAL DIFFERENT?

Patented fin technology allows for the easy adjustment of the lower jaw position where you need it.

The fins incorporate a novel fin slip avoidance system.

This allows the user to move their lower jaw while retaining the optimal jaw position.

The patented tongue posture shield helps the muscles of the throat and the tongue to keep the airway clear.

HOW TO GET AN AER DORSAL

1. Contact Aer Healthcare on (02) 80904358 for a referral to your closest Aer dentist. Alternatively, ask your GP or sleep physician for a referral to an Aer dentist.

2. The Aer dentist will assess your airway to find the optimal jaw position to effectively treat your OSA.

3. The Aer dentist will take impressions and a bite record of your teeth and send them to an Aer dental laboratory.

4. The Aer dentist will fit your new Aer Dorsal device. They will also explain how to use and take care of the device.

You want to know more about your sleep.

  • Snoring

  • Choking

  • Being sleepy during the day

  • Having pain in our jaws in the morning

  • Having headaches in the morning

  • Being a little touchy all day

you need answers beyond snoring and staying awake- after all, we only remember when we are awake during our sleep

We don’t remember the good time, only the bad times.

Most device companies promise comfort, we deliver it with the most current and up to date digital technologies.

Our intra oral scanning and digital computer design workflow eliminates all of the age old human errors that means your appliance fits and works every time.

We can offer you a trial of Somnibel therapy

Aer can let you trial Somnibel for a month for a low fee.

This way you can feel the difference that this therapy gives you. Our Somnibel Pro device and software collects snoring data during the month.

Somnibel Pro is the dentists and specialists for diagnostic purposes and you can then buy a patient based somnibel that is very competitively priced.

The patient based Somnibel is $AUD 298.00, plus shipping.

The professional somnibel (patient do not need to buy this as they have the cheaper option) is $AUD 589.00, plus shipping.

Respironics Threshold IMT Inspiratory Muscle Trainer

Respironics Threshold IMT Inspiratory Muscle Trainer provides consistent and specific pressure for inspiratory muscle strength and endurance training, regardless of how quickly or slowly patients breathe. It helps in exercising respiratory muscles and improves breathing. Works in any position for effective therapy. Features constant pressure that removes the need for a pressure indicator.

Features

CPAP improves the daytime sleepiness as does oral appliances in patients who successfully wear the therapy at night.

Some aspects of disease are not successfully treated with CPAP or OAT. Inspiratory muscles need to be exercised to alleviate the oxidative stress that is present in patients with OSAS. Oxidative stress is NOT relieved with long term use of CPAP.

Exercises with the Respironics Threshold IMT for just 7-10 minutes a day helps to alleviate higher levels of proteins and reduce oxidative muscle stress. Less stress means higher stamina in daily activities as well as lower blood pressure and reduced RLS symptoms in patients for both OAT and CPAP.

Oxidative stress in the external intercostal muscles of patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. {Barreiro, 2007 #18}

Compared with controls, the intercostal muscles of patients with OSAS had higher levels of protein carbonylation (median values 3.06 and 2.45, respectively, p = 0.042), nitration (median values 1.64 and 1.05, respectively, p = 0.019) and proportions of type I fibres (median values 57% and 48%, respectively, p = 0.035) and reduced respiratory muscle endurance (median values 3.2 and 9.5 min, respectively, p = 0.001). Positive correlations were found between MDA-protein and HNE-protein adducts (r = 0.641, p = 0.02 and r = 0.594, p = 0.05, respectively) and 3-nitrotyrosine (r = 0.625, p = 0.03) and the apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI) in all the patients with OSAS. Although treatment with CPAP significantly improved the AHI and oxygen desaturation, muscle oxidative stress levels and respiratory muscle endurance were not affected
