Dr Malisano Official Oventus Clinician Of The Gold Coast

Monday, May 16, 2016 by Malisano Dental

Dr Malisano who has specific training in Oral Sleep Medicine and Jaw Joint Dysfunction has been providing oral sleep appliances for many years.

She now has some exciting news!

Our team at Malisano Dental have completed training to provide The Oventus Clearway DeviceTM.

The Oventus Clearway Device TM is a new style of Mandibular Repositioning Appliance (MRA) that can help those people who have sleep disordered breathing, snore and can’t breathe through their nose.

It is the world’s first and only sleep therapy which directs the flow of air to the back of the throat and by-passes nasal, soft palate and tongue obstructions.

Using Digital Dentistry techniques with 3D Printing, a custom made medical grade mouthguard is manufactured from titanium.

This makes the appliance small, streamlined and lightweight (weighs only 16gms). Thus making it perfect for those travelling long distances.

Research supports that MRAs are indicated as the first line of treatment for snorers and patient’s with a mild–to-moderate OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnoea) and those who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy.

Oventus is currently conducting early research into a tongue retainer working with the Oventus Clearway DeviceTM to retain the tongue and further clear the airway for some patients.

The Research & Development team are also researching into future connecting the Oventus Clearway DeviceTM with a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine, but without a mask

For a solution to snoring, sleeping better and CPAP intolerance, do contact us on or 5532 1933.

Please forward this newsletter “The Oventus Clearway DeviceTM“to those who will appreciate it.

how do I know if I have sleep apnoea?

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 by Malisano Dental

Sleep apnoea is a condition in which breathing stops for 10 seconds or more during sleep.  This disrupts normal sleep pattern and can cause oxygen levels to drop dangerously low.  This action rarely results in full wakefulness and few or none of the events can be remembered the next day. 
There are two types of sleep apnea – Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and Central Sleep Apnoea. Read the rest of the entry...

Apr 14

UPPER AIRWAY RESISTANCE SYNDROME (UARS) is an increased effort to breathe while asleep in an attempt to compensate for a reduction in airflow through to the lungs.

It has some similar symptoms to frank OSA and TemporoMandibular Joint Dysfunction so it can easily be misdiagnosed and mistreated.

The consequences of not treating it is huge as it can place you at a higher risk to stroke, coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, depression and developing full blown OSA.

Research supports that it is more common in women (2:1), in the younger population and the less obese.

So please be aware, if you have any of these symptoms: 
-Morning headaches, feeling fatigued, unrefreshed sleep.
-Chronic pain, tension headaches, clicking jaw.
-Grind/clench your teeth, jaw pain, poor memory/concentration, irritability.
-Mild snoring.
As you may have UARS.

Please call us or email info@malisano to arrange a screening assessment for UARS.

Dr Malisano is a general dentist with specific interest in Dental Sleep Medicine and TMD. Her team is trained to help those with this condition.  Read the rest of the entry...
