How We Categorized Our Findings

We have rated the devices using the following categories:
icon of a person who snores

Efficacy

Efficacy of the devices was evaluated by comparing baseline pre-treatment home sleep test results to home sleep test results performed with the oral appliance. There were no statistical differences among the different types of appliances at the time the evaluation was performed*.
Oral Appliance treatment plan icon

Comfort

Devices are rated on comfort based on patient feedback. Although comfort is subjective, it can also be influenced by a patient’s unique dental anatomy. Certain dental conditions may make one style of sleep device more comfortable than others.
icon maintenance

Maintenance

We rated each oral appliance by ease of use to clean and maintain, and considered the cleaning products which may be needed.
calendar icon

Durability

We rated each device on how it handles normal wear and tear, and reviewed certain parts of the devices prone to damage.
certificate icon

Warranty

Warranties differ between manufacturers and device types. We outlined each device’s warranty below. We only prescribe devices that include a warranty. Device warranties cover normal wear and tear. This does not include loss, theft, or pet damage.
icon advancement

Advancement

Oral appliance therapy moves the lower jaw slightly forward. However, the lower jaw may need to be further forward to sleep your best. Each device can be advanced to bring the jaw further forward in small increments.This process is called titration. Sleep devices are rated by the style of titration and how much it can be titrated.
*As we continue to re-evaluate results, we may find small differences in efficacy that will appear based on larger numbers of patients evaluated.

I’m a singer with a truly operatic snore that nightly keeps those I love awake! I ventured into BlueSleep 8 years ago and was warmly received and treated by Dr. Jordan Stern who also diagnosed my severe sleep apnea. I was fitted for a Panthera appliance which I have been wearing ever since. Hallelujah, my family can sleep again! My heartfelt thanks to this most caring of doctors and his fantastic team.

I’ve been suffering with sleep apnea for a while now and was relieved to find BlueSleep! I was able to replace my CPAP machine with an oral appliance and the process could not have been easier!...

After trying other anti-snoring and anti-sleep apnea appliances this appliance from BlueSleep was life-changing! I am getting full nights of sleep without waking up and feeling refreshed and not needing a nap all day. My thinking is clearer, my work is better, and my mood is much better!
