What are your thoughts on dental Daytime Nightime Appliances (DNA)?
What are your thoughts on dental Daytime Nightime Appliances (DNA)?
I have seen MADs being mentioned frequently as alternatives for mask treatment (even by Dr Christian Guillert, the guy who coined the term OSA). Upon further research I stumped upon DNAs. To those who don't know what they are, here are a few links:


DNAs (Daytime Nighttime Appliance) are like braces that reshape your jaw, increasing the space in your throat which allows for proper airflow that may help (or even cure) your sleep apnea. They also claim to have cosmetic benefits like by making your face protrude forward more (which is a factor in facial aesthetics).

The field is called Epigenetic Orthodontics. Did anyone ever hear of DNAs or Epigenetic Orthodontics? Their claim of curing sleep apnea while making you more attractive in the process sounds too good to be true. On the other hand, I have stopped counting on my doctors to be well informed on the best therapies for me. So what do you say?
