This oral appliance, called the SilentPartner™.
The Silent Partner Oral Appliance
The SilentPartner™ is an FDA approved TMJ-friendly, oral sleep appliance that was developed by Dr. Doneskey and partners to effectively manage snoring and obstructive sleep apnea as well as many TMJ related problems. Healthy jaw function, patient comfort, and full adjustability are the heart of its design. The appliance is customized for each individual patient while its patented mechanism makes on-going clinical adjustment simpler and more convenient than other oral sleep appliances on the market today. The SilentPartner™ provides patients with a convenient and comfortable alternative to CPAP therapy with the added important benefit of effectively managing nighttime jaw clenching, a secondary sleep disorder seen in almost all sleep apnea patients.
The SilentPartner™ is used to effectively treat:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Treat patients who are unable to use CPAP
TMJ (jaw joint) clicking and locking
