How can the Oventus treatment process help you?

There are a number of options to be considered when treating obstructive sleep apnoea and problem snoring. The most prevalent is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), with recent studies by sleep disorder specialists showing that oral devices and CPAP have similar long-term health outcomes. You should also be aware that many patients cannot tolerate CPAP and either seek alternatives, or simply stop treatment.*

Oventus offers you a unique treatment platform based on an innovation that combines an airway with a comfortable oral device, individually made for each patient with the help of state-of-the-art 3D printing technology.

*Oventus devices may offer a suitable treatment to those who cannot tolerate Continuous Positive Airway Treatment (CPAP) therapy. Oral devices are not generally accepted as the first line treatment for sleep apnoea. Diagnosis and monitoring by a suitably qualified healthcare professional is required.

Medical experts help you through

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is a serious chronic medical condition. That’s why the Oventus sleep apnoea treatment process involves dentists trained in Dental Sleep Medicine, and treatment is prescribed by your Sleep Physician based on the results of your diagnostic sleep study and your suitability for treatment.

The following steps show you what the process can involve

    Find out if an Oral Appliance is suitable for you

    It’s important that you speak to your doctor about your best options for obstructive sleep apnoea treatment before making a decision. Custom mouthguards are indicated for patients with mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnoea and those who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy. The Oventus Airway Technology presents a unique feature that may be particularly useful for patients with nasal obstruction or who breathe through their mouth during sleep. If you think you may have a sleep disorder or would like to change your current sleep disorder treatment, please seek medical advice from your physician or sleep disorder specialist.

    STARTING TREATMENT

    Consider a Diagnostic Sleep Study and find the solution for you

    If you have not had a sleep study in the last five years, or if your health and physical condition have significantly changed, you will need to have a diagnostic sleep study. At your initial appointment with an Oventus-trained dentist, please discuss having a diagnostic sleep study done— they can be completed at home. Ask your sleep physician or GP for a sleep study referral.

    When you have your sleep study, or arrange for your sleep study at home, talk to your sleep physician about your Oventus Dentist appointment and the benefits of using an oral device with airway technology.

    Customising your treatment

    During your initial appointment, our Oventus-trained dentist will take impressions of your top and bottom teeth and a bite registration. These records are sent to Oventus to manufacture a custom mouthguard just for you.

    Oventus technology creates your customised O2VentTM

    Your dental records are converted into the electronic files used to print your sleep apnoea treatment device, using 3D scanning and computer aided design (CAD) software. Your O2VentTM device is then 3D printed from titanium. Custom-made plastic inserts are created to perfectly fit your teeth, making the device comfortable to wear and easy to fit. The Oventus Medical Quality System is fully accredited according to ISO 13485 international standards — you can be sure that the manufacturing process follows industry leading quality control processes.

    Your Oventus Dentist will fit your new device, with the right advice.

    Your Oventus dentist will contact you when your O2VentTM device is ready for delivery and will fit your custom mouthguard for you. They will work with you to make sure your treatment is optimised, explain any potential side effects of your sleep apnoea treatment and how to manage them. Make sure to follow the instructions for use, cleaning and care of your device. Your dentist or sleep physician, or both, will manage your ongoing sleep disorder treatment and make sure that you are getting the results you need. This may involve a follow-up sleep study to check the device is effective for your condition.
