How it Works!
The Adjustable TheraSnore is custom fit chair-side in your doctor’s office. Patients take their appliance home the same day they are fit. The Adjustable TheraSnore gently holds the mandible slightly protrusive without locking the mandible into the appliance. When the mandible is in a protrusive position, the tongue follows forward naturally and the soft tissue at the back of the throat tightens up. This protrusive position opens the airway, allowing more air to enter. Simply put, when you get more air, you don’t snore.
