Custom Fitting Procedure
Follow these simple steps to custom fit your device.
Boil 3-4 inches (depth) of water, and turn off microwave or stove.
(If using a microwave boil the water in an extra coffee cup)
Drop ApneaRx into the boiled water for precisely 90 seconds.
Then remove using a spatula or tongs.
Quickly dip ApneaRx into a cup of tap water for 2-3 seconds to remove any hot water. Then bite down firmly for 30 seconds.
Fitting tips: While biting down, use a sucking motion to mold the heated material to the teeth. Use your tongue to press the material against your inner teeth. Use your fingers on the outside of your lips and cheeks to press the material against the outer teeth.
Remove ApneaRx from the mouth and put it in a cup of tap water for several minutes to set the impression.
Note: ApneaRx works best with a deep impression of the teeth. If this does not occur, repeat steps 1-4.
Follow these simple steps to adjsut your ApneaRx. Adjustment – ApneaRx should be at the factory jaw setting of “3”.
Hold ApneaRx in the ‘C’ position in your left hand. Simultaneously squeeze both sides of the upper jaw piece with your right thumb and index finger. If required, use your left fingers as shown to assist movement.
To advance the lower jaw piece forward, slide the upper tray in the 1 to 10 direction.
To reposition the lower jaw piece backwards, ‘rock’ the upper tray from side to side in the 10 to 1 direction.
Gradually adjust ApneaRx in 1 mm increments until improvement is noticed.
Make sure both sides of ApneaRx are adjusted to the same setting at all times.
