Dental Professionals Overview

First introduced in the early 1990’s The Silencer and related products have assisted thousands of dentists and their patients.

Typically dentists who use The Silencer list the following attributes and patented features as the reasons they choose The Silencer:

  • vertical adjustment
  • advancement increment as little as 1mm.
  • adjustable by patient, if desired.
  • precision
  • durability, and
  • comfort achieved through lateral movement.

One of our dentists from suburb of Landsdale perhaps put it best when he stated that “I use The Silencer for my patients, because I simply feel that it provides me with the best possible chance of providing effective long term therapy”.

Dr. Wayne Halstrom

The debate on whether or not there is a place in the practice of sleep medicine for oral appliance therapy is long over.  The goal of oral appliance therapy, as with other modalities in health care is to “serve” the needs of our patients as well as “protect” them from the threats to health that come as a result of sleep disordered breathing. As  dentist from suburb of Landsdale we have ventured out from our usual and customary dental roles into a field of medicine. What protection does the sleep dentist need, and protection from whom?

A fact of life for the sleep dentist is the statistical probability of tooth movement and bite change.

The “sleep dentist” will be routinely treating the patients of other dentists.  Is the patient’s regular dentist informed as to the relative benefits of a life saving therapy vs the potential oral changes that may become involved?  If not, then what may be that dentist`s reaction to a substantial bite change that may or may not have challenged some restorative procedures over which that general dentist may be very sensitive?  Is that dentist likely to be “friendly“ when called by the patient`s lawyer?  It would be folly to believe that everyone in the sand box is our friend.  It is not enough to seek shelter behind the fact that MAD is a therapy for a serious life threatening medical condition – ”Get over it” is not a good answer!
