Elastic Mandibular Advancement

The smallest of our obstruction sleep apnea appliances

More Control. More Flexibility 

The Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA) appliance is the smallest of our obstruction sleep apnea appliances. The individual trays are constructed of 2mm vacuum form material and are held together with straps of varying lengths and flexibility. These straps provide unsurpassed lateral movement and comfort as well as dictating the amount of mandibular advancement. These straps are positioned between the teeth and cheek leaving the palate free from obstruction.

Each EMA elastic strap comes in four different strengths, indicated by color.

All of DynaFlex’s EMA cases come with a set of #21 – #13 straps in the blue and yellow. We set the device to the doctors bite with a size #19 strap. By us setting the device with a size #19 strap at the doctors bite registration, this allows for retrusion of the mandible if needed. For advancement you will move down in the size.
