Share on Facebook
Charlotte (N.C.) Oral Surgery became one of three surgery centers across the U.S. to trial Zephyr Sleep Technologies' Matrx plus oral appliance titration technology.

Here are five notes:

1. Matrx plus is an at-home device to help patient suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The device is pending FDA clearance.

2. The study of Matrx plus is designed to prospectively evaluate and estimate the effectiveness of the oral appliance. The device allows dentists to collect sleep data in the patient's home rather than at a sleep lab.

3. Zephyr Sleep Technologies is also studying the use of Matrx plus in more than 200 sleep labs and clinics across the U.S. To date, more than 10,000 tests have been completed.

4. The most common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure. While this treatment is highly effective, patients report difficulty tolerating.

5. Charlotte Oral Surgery is certified by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for providing oral appliance therapy.
