Dentures and Devices Improve Comfort and Sleep

New devices from Whole You promise more comfort and improved sleep. The Nexteeth full denture uses CAD/CAM technology, advanced material, and a thinner palatial plate for a better fit. Also, the Respire Pink Endurance Framework (EF) and Respire Pink Micro treat sleep apnea and snoring in patients who need more tongue space or have a smaller mouth.

Whole You has researched the technology behind its Nexteeth for a number of years to ensure a precise fitting and comfortable denture. It uses the multifunctional DENTCA Tray to accelerate and improve the denture making process by allowing impressions and bite registration to be taken in one office visit.

The DENTCA Tray impressions then are combined with CAD technology to reduce dentist visits and create digital denture design. Once the design is complete, Whole You creates the dentures, which are crafted with comfort, strength, and care in mind.

“They are manufactured with advanced resin material, which has higher flexural strength and less shrinkage stress in polymerization for registrant to deformation,” said Hiromi Inagaki, chief innovation officer at Whole You. “Their unique acrylic polymer coating brings the hydrophilic property to the denture surface. And with this surface, our denture will be easy to clean with water.”

Meanwhile, the Respire Pink EF and Respire Pink Micro devices address obstructive sleep apnea and snoring with more comfortable options so patients can wake up feeling refreshed. They open up the airway for better airflow while holding the jaw in place to prevent it from falling back and obstructing the airway.

“Both devices are made of cobalt-chromium alloy, which is durable compared with acrylic materials,” said Inagaki.

The telescopic hardware on each device permits lateral and vertical movement to treat obstructive sleep apnea patients who grind their teeth. Measuring from 0.5 to 1.0 mm, the Respire Pink EF is one of the thinnest lingual coverage products available, according to Whole You. The custom-fit Respire Pink Micro features shorter adjustment arms for increased comfort, particularly in patients with a smaller mouth.

The upcoming Respire Blue EF also will use the cobalt-chromium alloy. It will offer a dual block design with interlocking wings, making it less intrusive and allowing patients to open and close their mouths.

Nexteeth is now available. The Respire Pink EF and Pink Micro will be released on October 19. For more information, call (844) 548-3385 or visit
