Dental Sentinel Clinical Study Commences

A clinical study to evaluate Barron Associates’ Dental Sentinel system is underway. The Dental Sentinel is a miniature adherence and sleep monitoring micro-recorder that can be implanted into an oral appliance (e.g., an orthodontic retainer). The Dental Sentinel overcomes present barriers to wider adoption of oral appliances, and offers the capability for highly accurate adherence monitoring. The instrument employs novel sensors to determine daily use, and provides objective measurement of improvements in the arousal index.
