How to Capture A Sleep Apnea Bite Scan
A protruding bite scan is critical to ensure you provide the best product for your patient. The article below outlines the steps required to capture a bite scan for a sleep apnea device successfully.
Set Therapeutic Bite
Position the patient's bite into the projected therapeutic bite position.
Ensure Proper Spacing
- Leave roughly 3mm vertical clearance between the arches.
- Leave roughly 5mm between the opposing anteriors.
Stabilize Jaw Position
Ensure a stable jaw position with a gauge, gig, or firm makeshift device in the therapeutic bite position.
Scan the bite on both sides.
