Nox T3 Home Monitoring System

nox t3.jpgEvery day medical experts and sleep labs use the Nox T3 home monitoring system to collect airway data.  Now, with a system designed for dentistry, the Nox T3 collects bruxism data in conjunction with airflow, oxygen saturation, heart rate, body position, and audio … 14 channels in all.  The system is very easy to use and comfortable to wear.  The Noxturnal software that is part of this system is meant to be shared with medical doctors for a diagnosis of sleep apnea.  With this medical diagnosis, the best treatment plan, possibly CPAP therapy or a sleep appliance, can be determined for the patient.   If an oral appliance is used, test again to provide medical doctors with objective AHI data on the effectiveness of treatment.  Click here for a link on 5 Reasons Every Dentist Should Add Airway screening to their Practice.

 

GemPro Wellness Product

With the New Dentist Conference and over 150 related dental meetings being held in conjunction with ADA 2017, this is the one time of year the world of dentistry comes together to learn, meet and grow within the profession.

We can’t wait to see you in Atlanta for ADA 2017 – America’s Dental Meeting.
