We just started using a new sleep appliance called MicroO2 with great success. This appliance seems to be much more comfortable than the Somnomed appliance. We have stopped significant snoring and improved oxygenation almost immediately, even in very severe cases. The appliance also does not constrict the tongue space- a common problem with other sleep appliances. When we call our patients after a few days of wear they are amazed with the results. We use a neuromuscular bite as the starting point for the appliance. This allows a much more comfortable jaw position.

An explanatory article about neuromuscular dentistry and the TENS unit is included this month. It’s an area of dentistry that we specialize in. Neuromuscular dentistry is an effective treatment for complex pain and migraine symptoms among other conditions.
We see many neuromuscular TMJ pain and bite destruction patients at Adler Cosmetic and Family Dentistry… and a frequent question is :
Why do I need to use the TENS unit and how is it training my bite to a new position?
Many of us can occasionally benefit from help to manage priorities at work. This month’s feature article, “5 Tips to Manage Office Priorities” includes some ideas to consider. We hope you’ll find at least one of the tips to be helpful.
Neuromuscular dentistry can be the key to treating a number of the bothersome or even painful symptoms listed below. Links to a recent case study and additional information are included for reference.

When Hans first came to the Boulder dental group of Adler Cosmetic & Family Dentistry he was ready for a change. Hans had had fillings, crowns, root canals, and extractions in the past and he wasn’t happy with how his teeth looked or felt. He had lost teeth on the lower right side and had trouble chewing. Hans wanted to have his smile completely made over so it was functional. He also wanted his smile to look great. Hans is a very friendly outgoing guy with an active lifestyle and he needed a smile that matched his personality.
