The Morpheus™ has up to 9mm of adjustable protrusion compared to TAP® at 6mm and MDSA® at 5mm. Additional titration increases the ease in which ideal positioning can be obtained without lab procedures and interrupted care. Patient or dentist can make adjustments.

The Morpheus™

The SandBox Dental Sleep Appliance, named Morpheus™, has been tested in a randomized controlled crossover trial against CPAP and a placebo, and it is also one of the most technologically advanced and patient friendly MAS’s (mandibular advancement splint) on the market.

The full clinical trial information is not contained in this document(see below), but the headline success rate of Morpheus was 80.3% in fully apneic patients. The potential exists for the device to be even more successful in non-apneic snorers.

The appliance combines a high clinical success rate with key features that make it more comfortable and flexible for the patient. Unlike some MAS devices, our appliance is fully patient adjustable, negating the need for further clinical visits for simple titration. Should the patient need to modify the degree of mandibular advancement they can simply adjust with the key provided.

Our appliance is also uniquely designed with internal splint fixing, allowing the lips to be closed around the device, preventing the dry lips and excess salivation associated with some splints. High levels of patient comfort meant that during clinical trials over 98% of patients found the device acceptable.

Our appliance is a laboratory-manufactured device molded specifically to patient impressions. As a soft slim-line two-piece device, it allows full lateral movement while retaining high levels of patient comfort and custom made accuracy. By allowing a degree of movement during the night, the device remains in the mouth, unlike some devices that may dislocated.

In addition, the lateral movement provides a solution to some patients who experience TMJ stress with a fixed block device.

Key Benefits:

  • Full lateral movement
  • Full patient adjustability
  • High Patient Comfort
  • Clinically proven and effective
  • Internal fixings improve comfort
