The Herbst oral device is an effective treatment for snoring, mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea or severe sleep apnea when other treatment options have failed and bruxism (tooth grinding).  This appliance allows patients to move laterally and vertically without disengaging the appliance. 

  • The Herbst has good retention and holds up well for people who are bruxers (tooth grinders)

  • The Herbst is considered very strong and durable

  • Can be made as with a telescopic mechanism or a Shim version

  • Allows for lateral movement

  • Recommended for mild to moderate sleep apnea or for severe sleep apnea when CPAP is not tolerated

  • Also good for those who snore and grind their teeth
