As a prescribed intraoral device, Dental Crafters’ custom-fit, FDA-approved IST Snoring Appliance is designed to help ease snoring and sleep apnea by repositioning the lower jaw by holding the mandible forward during sleep. The two-piece upper and lower arch system is designed to advance the lower jaw forward which increases airway passage. Connecting the upper and lower pieces of this mandibular advancement device is a telescoping stainless steel tube component consisting of a tube (upper) and rod (lower). With the IST Snoring Appliance, you are able to open and close your mouth along with left to right jaw movement, all while the determined forward position is maintained.
