Better sleep simply
without having to turn your life upside down for it?
Sleeping disorders can have lots of causes. And there are a great number of devices and methods on the market which promise to make your problems disappear at once. From a simple pillow to an ear-nose-throat surgery a vast number of things might occur. But how do you get to know what is the most efficient in your case? Who can help you with the examination and with developing an effective solution?
A solution exists, there is a method with which it is possible to find out what causes your sleeping disorder and what the most effective treatment of your problem is.
What is more, a sleeping disorder can have several different symptoms.
The most significant difference is its complexity. Since a sleeping disorder has several causes, individual elements on their own will be less likely to succeed. So the question really is not whether the other methods have worked or not, but whether you still want to find a solution. So, would you like to wake up rested every morning? 🙂
It is true that a good mattress can improve our quality of sleep by a lot. But we have to take into consideration that the sleeping disorder itself is not caused by the quality of the mattress. Here we have to decide whether we want the problem to end permanently or whether we are satisfied with “feeling maybe a bit better”. Which one would you prefer?
Hungary’s first sleep dentistry
In the past years in different parts of the world surgeries opened which offer special, sleep-related services. HermannOrtho is Hungary’s first such surgery. Alongside our health-centred orthodontic treatments we have established our unique service. This has several elements. The early diagnosis of sleeping disorders, the cooperation of a highly-trained professional team and the construction of the most modern sleep dental treatment packages.
We work with sleep specialists and ear-nose-throat specialists on the treatment of adult and childhood sleeping disorders. We add to this the dentistry-related breathing, logopedic and bodily treatments and our functional neurological treatments which are special at a global level. On top of that, we can also give advice on lifestyle change and biohacking. All of this in one location, accompanying the patient through the whole process.
During the sleep examination the polygraph diagnosed me with sever sleep apnea.
Frequent apnea (over 15 in an hour!!!), snoring and dryness of the mouth accompanied my sleep because of which I often felt the lack of sleep, tiredness the next day. Beside the apnea being a serious health hazard, driving a vehicle is also not allowed in this condition because there is a high risk of accidents.
The doctor doing the examination recommended the use of a CPAP device which I rented but unfortunately I could not get used to it and sleep properly with it during the course of quite a few nights. Then, luckily, I got the advice to go and visit HermannOrtho (thanks, Dávid!).
After a thorough examination in a few days they made me an orthodontic rail for nightly use which regulated the position of the jaw during sleep (the jaw cannot slip back in its relaxed state so the airways are much less likely to get obstructed) so the air can flow freely. The “rail” itself is a transparent plastic device, similar to braces, it is easy and quick to get used to. After about one week of use a follow-up examination was done with a sleep monitor on two consecutive nights.
I have received the specialist’s opinion which speaks for itself: “the polygraph sleep examination of two consecutive nights could not confirm apnea, there was no hypoxia…”
I am very grateful to HemannOrtho for their help.
HermannOrtho’s sleep dentistry is currently one of a kind in the country. If you have tried the health insurance covered Therasnore but could not get used to it or it does not work and you do not use it, visit HermannOrtho and try the 3D printed protrusion rails. As an IT student doing his Master’s, it is fantastic to see that the new technologies that I study about are already in use at HermannOrtho. Gábor always does his best to further improve his knowledge in fields beyond but connected to orthodontics. I can guarantee that except for a few exceptions not too many orthodontic specialists would know what the abbreviation “CG” stands for.
We brought both our children to the HermannOrtho surgery. Gábor worked miracles on Bence’s teeth, the end result was much better than I had expected! Zoé’s treatment is not finished yet, but the change is already visible and she is very happy about that.
I myself like coming here because the children have never been afraid, the treatment was much more comfortable and pain free than I had been told by others who got treatment elsewhere. Children like Gábor very much, he speaks their language. Everybody was very kind to them, they would always explain to them what was going to happen and why during the treatment.
It was also important for us that the surgery is well-equipped, they work with the newest technology. Gábor constantly develops both the surgery and himself! This was a very important feature for me when making the choice. This is why we come here, although we live 85 kms from Budapest. It is the icing on the cake that he proved to be a very kind person. Everybody at the surgery is very nice and this was also very important to me, since we are talking about my children.
Dear Dr Gábor Hermann and Team, Girls, Anita, Era and Everybody who has worked for my health,
it is my greatest luck to have found you. A conscientious orthodontist who didn’t take me on as a pateint recommended Doctor Hermann, referring to him as “the best orthodontist of the country”. I encouraged myself by thinking that if a professional evaluates someone like this, then he must be good.
Filled with new hopes, I was excited to go to the consultation. Well, people, it is true! Professionalism, knowledge, a lot of outstanding reference, information on the treatment, communication on the procedure, indication of attention (yes, your health is important for us, too), soothing nice words and actions. It is a bit funny to say, but I do say that I like coming to HERMANNORTHO. My fear of failure was vanished, and the creation, my braces were a success. Congratulations and big thanks to all of you. If I have to choose one word to describe all of this it would be: EXCELLENCE! I would like to thank you for everything that I’ve got.
With love and respect!
Sleep Light and Sleep Full.
Because your sleep can be deep and you can be energetic throughout the whole day without turning your life upside down.
Sleep Light for adults and adolescents (online as well)
This is an entry level programme. Sleeping disorders develop due to several causes, but there are people who, in a given period of life, would like a fast and simpler solution. The Sleep Light treatment might just be the thing for them. It is based on the fact that one of the most common sleeping disorder types is the breathing-type sleeping disorder, so the dental sleep improving devices can offer a very good solution since they do not allow the lower jaw to drop back during the night. This prevents the collapsing of the airways and snorig, in many cases it effectively improves sleep.
A truly effective sleep improving machine has to meet certain requirements:
All of the above requirements can only be met by a device that is digitally engineered and produced.
Our surgery was the first to bring the world-leading technology with which we can provide our patients with the most modern sleep improving device. After scanning the mouth we digitally engineer the device and print it with our own 3D printer. And from a material that was specifically produced for this purpose and is expressly resilient to great force.
It is important to note that in this case it is also important to do the at-home sleep examination as a start so we can discover a possibly more severe sleeping disorder.
Naturally, if you want to move on to a more complex treatment after the Sleep Light treatment, it is possible.
Since sleeping disorders have several causes, the most effective solution is a programme which affects the most causes at the same time.
For adults in our Sleep Full package after a thorough assessment we put together a programme which works on breathing, on training the muscles that contribute to the development of snoring, a kind of neurological groundwork, the supporting muscles of the body and we also provide a sleep improving device.
We also give advice on how to deal with stress, and there is a possibility for the assessment of eating habits and counselling concerning it. If necessary, we involve an ear-nose-throat specialist and a sleep specialist as well in the treatment. We produce a daytime rail, similar to the 3D printed one known from Sleep Light, as well in cases where a jaw joint problem or some other cause calls for it. The supplementary training is a programme which mainly builds on practicing at home. It contains all the elements needed for the development of brain hemispheres, basic reflex integration, breathing training and developing the body’s supporting muscles. After 2 intense learning sessions we devote one occasion to checking the exercises. These are personal meetings. This, however, is followed by practicing at home. On the 6th week there is an interim checkup in the form of a personal session, then at the end of the programme on the 12th week there is the closing session in which we summarise the change. When there is a personal meeting, biotechnological development is part of the session as well. Personal sessions are 45-60 minutes long.
The length of the Sleep Full programme is 12 weeks.
It is important to note that also in this case the at-home sleep examination is necessary as a start so that we can discover a possibly more severe sleeping disorder.
It is also possible to do the programme even more intensely and we can provide you, alongside the work to be done at home, with more practice with the help of our biotechnological development tools in our training centre. The amount of the extra fee depends on how many occasions we would like to supplement the programme with.
The short answer is: because this really works. A complete team will be working on improving your sleep, furthermore, we have brought you the most modern sleeping device in the world which we engineer and produce digitally.
The long answer is that I totally understand if at first it seems expensive. But in this case it is not the point how much it costs but what sleeping deeply at last and waking up full of energy can give you. Because it is not all the same whether we spend the years to come exhausted and in a bad mood, or rested and cheerful.
And this treatment can give you that. The question remaining is whether you want to be tired or energetic and happy?
Now we have a special offer for you. We believe so much in the procedure and our device and the feedback so far has been so positive that we give you a 30 day money back guarantee.
In case you feel that our sleep improving device has not brought about the change you were hoping for, send us back the device and we will pay you back the price of the Sleep Light service. In case of the Sleep Full packages we also pay back the price of the Sleep Light packages on receiving back the device.
since they have to be at their best all the time.
because for one, when they are more rested, they are also more efficient, they make less mistakes and solve problems more easily.
who want to be amped up 100% and get the most out of their day.
who are very much aware of how much work they get done in an hour and how.
who might sleep less anyway because of the children or the snoring of their partner is an ongoing problem between them.
since in many cases a childhood sleeping disorder is behind the learning difficulties and behavioural disorders as well.
Everyone says that their product will help you, right? The mattress salesman will recommend a mattress, while the miracle pill salesman will recommend a miracle pill. How is this approach different in any way?
So if you do not want to be tired, grumpy and absent-minded every day either, but energetic, efficient and cheerful instead, follow these three steps!
It is enough to give us your name and contact details.
We will get in touch with you to make an appointment.
Visit us at the agreed time for a full assessment.
Dental sleep improving devices are basically made to pull forward the lower jaw bone during sleep. This is important because it keeps a section of the windpipe from collapsing and thus prevents snoring and apnea. The moving forward of the lower jaw bone also brings the tongue more forward which then cannot close together with the softer back part of the palate. A good sleep improving device is comfortable, brings the lower jaw bone forward as needed and enables an even fitting together of jaw bones and sets of teeth. 3D technology brought about a huge breakthrough in this area. Since everything happens digitally, including taking the impression of the teeth, the planning and the production as well, the device is so precise that it can be delivered by post to the patient’s home, it is not necessary to carve it or further fit it at the surgery. What is more, it is made of a material that is very resilient against braking and the grinding of teeth. Traditional, non-customized sleep improving devices have failed to work, only a very small number of patients can use them. The problem with earlier customized, laboratory-produced sleep improving devices is that they often break or wear out quickly. So the future obviously belongs to digital devices. We are very fortunate that we could bring this to Hungary.
There are many kinds of sleeping disorders. If waking up at night, perspiring, snoring, daytime fatigue are an issue then we are most probably dealing with a breathing type sleeping disorder. The at-home sleep examination can confirm this. With mild or semi severe sleeping disorders the sleep improving device works very well. In case of severe sleeping disorders we have to consult a sleep specialist first, but this device can also come into play as a supplementary treatment, for example when the patient cannot get used to the pressurized breathing mask which is a classic treatment method in case of severe sleeping disorders. Many of our patients told us that they could substitute the mask with the dental sleep improving device. All in all, we have constructed the Sleep Light package so that we could provide an expressly effective entry level possibility.
Sleep Light for adults and for adolescents is an entry level package. It is chosen by patients who do not want to or cannot get a more intense treatment yet. For them it is not a problem to wear the rails overnight for years even. In fact, this can easily be built into one’s bedtime routine. If they want to move on from here, they usually target the Sleep Full package. We compile the intense package after a more detailed assessment. Its developing elements supplement the effects of the rails and even make it possible to omit the rails completely at a later point in time.
Full is a 3 month programme. It is extremely successful, the great majority of our patients are satisfied and they do not only tell us about the improvement of their sleep, but also that of jaw joint symptoms, or they experience even more significant changes like ringing in the ears or head-neck pains go away. In many cases not only the nighttime but also the daytime rails are also part of the treatment. That is, at the end of the successful programme we usually sit down and discuss the possibilities. There are three alternatives. We either stick to the wearing of both the nighttime and daytime rails until a final decision is made. Another possibility is that we stabilize the new and healthy jaw position by setting the ideal bite with an orthodontic treatment. The third possibility is that your own dentist does the final setting of the bite (or a dentist recommended by us) in a way that changes the chewing surface of the teeth.
During the Sleep Light programme we give you a nighttime sleep improving device. This device is so precise that it can be delivered to you by post, it is not necessary to hand it over in the surgery. Afterwards a follow-up examination is only needed if it has to be adjusted in some way or, in the case of a more severe sleeping disorder, it has to be measured with an at home sleep examination how much our device has improved our sleeping values. Otherwise a follow-up examination is recommended every six months.
The Sleep Full package contains more therapeutic elements. There are weeks during the programme when there are two training sessions and it might occur that you will have appointments with several specialists during the course of one week. After the programme we have a sit-down and analyse the change and if there is no further treatment, we recommend you have a follow-up examination every six months.
During the childhood health-centred orthodontic treatments we have our patients back every 4-6 weeks. During the training there might be a meeting twice a week, sometimes less than that. Here it is also possible that you will have appointments with several specialists in one week. As far as we can we do our best to put the in-house appointments on the same day.
It is worth mentioning that in so far as the teeth change, the nighttime sleep improving device will not be able to fit into its place. That is why we suggest that you start any of the adult sleep improving programmes with all of your teeth good and with stable fillings and reconstructions.
This is a fascinating question. In fact, there are several sides to the connection of COVID and sleep. A great number of people who have been through the infection have given accounts of long-lasting sleeping disorder. One part of this is psychological, a kind of post-traumatic stress syndrome. At the same time, there is also the physical and neurological trauma of the body. Meaning that in this case a combination of vitamins, neurological development and targeted sleep therapy is going to be necessary. The other topic is prevention. Many examinations have shown that those who sleep well are more resilient to the infection, or if they contract it, they get through it easier. This is how Melatonin has become part of certain COVID prevention and therapeutic protocols. The third concern is the psycho-social consequence caused by distancing and fear. From all around the world we hear that the number of people suffering from depression and sleeping disorders has skyrocketed. This includes a rise in numbers of patients suffering from sleep-related illnesses e.g. jaw joint problems.
Just as surprising as the great number of children struggling with sleeping disorders is the fact that numerous adolescents suffer from sleeping disorders. The pandemic might be a cause of this but already in the pre-COVID times many people turned to us with sleep-related problems. These include anxiety, nightmares, snoring, fatigue, but we also have to highlight the high number of adolescent jaw joint problems.
In this stage of life lifestyle is of extremely great importance. Irregular sleeping habits and constant screen glare are the two key elements. At the same time when it comes to sports once again the extremes prevail, either a complete lack of sports is characteristic or an eviscerating (too intense and/or late afternoon or evening) sports activity and all of these are counterproductive to relaxing sleep. The treatment has roughly the same steps and techniques as sleep treatment for adults but with a great emphasis on the reforming of lifestyle.
We are aware that not stressing about things is easier said than done, it is very difficult to put it into practice. In fact, already small steps mean a lot. The basic principle is that it does not matter what happens around us but how we react to it. The small techniques of relaxing the body, winding down before going to bed can be the basics. These are followed by so-called Mindfulness practices, calming music, using scents and meditation. Our programme constantly develops. At present we only give practical advice (which is part of the booklet) but audio materials are in production and basic meditation advice and a coaching service as well.
A lot. First, there is the phenomenon of the so called leaky gut syndrome (increased intestinal permeability). This is a process in which certain types of food constantly irritate the intestinal wall and later get through it into the bloodstream, thus creating a permanent state of inflammation. This state of general irritation eventually transfers into the nervous system causing its tension to increase. This is why already with a change in nutrition depression and other mental and neurological conditions can be treated. During sleep the goal will also be to find out which food to avoid. This is shown by the food intolerance test. The other factor is partly connected to this and this is the composition of gut bacteria. The so called microbiome is an important part of human health that is only now being discovered by science. It can be examined what kind of bacteria we lack for functioning ideally and how they can be replaced. In this sense the third element is the intake of vitamins and microelements as well. The fourth factor is the timing of meals. Eating late and heavy food make it more difficult to fall asleep and keep the body from calming down. Stimulants, coffee, alcohol also belong here, these can also worsen the quality of sleep to a great extent.
We constantly develop our programmes. The introduction of the 3D sleep improving rails in our surgery is a great leap which made it possible that the patient has to come to the surgery only once to get their mouth and bite scanned. The produced rail can be sent via post. The other elements of the training also work online for the most part, in fact, we are getting closer and closer to having the complete course run online after a single meeting in the surgery in the future. At the moment we still recommend more, ideally five occasions.
Childhood sleeping disorders are astonishingly frequent. On top of that, while in an adult a lack of sleep in most cases causes a lack of energy and fatigue, in case of a child the result is often hyperactivity. Did you know that a lot of children get diagnosed with ADHD who in fact suffer from a sleeping disorder? These sleeping disorders affect the development of the child’s face and jawbone, causing almost every time a disorder of the bite and the jaw bone as well. In the HermannOrtho surgery we have developed a health centric orthodontic method in which we apply all the elements that the adult sleep therapy also contains according to a treatment system in cooperation with a sleep specialist. So if your child sleeps or breathes with their mouth open, is exhausted during the day or is overly amped up, remember that a sleeping disorder is a realistic possible cause. It is our pleasure to give you an appointment and arrange the diagnostic procedure.
As far as we do not know about a direct injury, or spinal disc herniation, then most likely the popping of the jaw joint, the pain or locking thereof is connected to sleep. Sleeping is the time of regeneration. If during sleep we do not get to the appropriate stages of sleep, because our body constantly wakes up again and again, then neckpain, numbness of the arm, a headache and problems of the jaw joint appear. There is a great number of methods for treating these but medical science has figured out in the recent years that only with the inclusion of sleep treatment can these be treated effectively. The situation is similar with the teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Ideally muscles are relaxed during sleep. If muscles activate, that is a sign of a sleeping disorder. What is more, this is a huge force which can be detrimental to not only the jaw joint but also the teeth, the gums and the bones of the parodontium. The solution will be sleep therapy, the setting of teeth or different kind of rails will not be sufficient in themselves. In case of jaw joint disorders in our Sleep Full programme we supplement the complete arsenal of sleep therapy with chewing muscle training.
