The Herbst Appliance

The Herbst appliance can be used to treat mild or moderate cases of sleep apnea. The one-piece telescopic mechanism advances the lower jaw allowing for an improved airway. The hard acrylic makes this a durable sleep appliance.

 
The standard Herbst appliance is well known as an orthodontic appliance used to treat Class 2 correction cases.
 
The standard Herbst has also been modified to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea cases. The one-piece telescopic mechanism advances the mandible into a forward position allowing for an improved airway. The hard acrylic material makes this a durable sleep appliance.
