Sonitus Medical Announces Affirmative Update Regarding Bone Conduction Oral Appliances in American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Policy Statement on Implantable Hearing Devices
Date:2/27/2013

prosthetic devices that reroute sound through skull bones, SoundBite places a custom fabricated transducer on the tooth, thereby eliminating the need to surgically implant a post in the skull.  In this way, SoundBite eliminates the surgical costs and potential complications of the implant by using the tooth as a "naturally osseointegrated" post.

The SoundBite system comprises two parts. The first component is a removable in-the-mouth (ITM) appliance, which is custom made for each patient to fit on either the upper left or right back teeth. The ITM transducer produces vibrations that allow sound to reach the cochleae via bone conduction. The second component is a small digital signal processor unit worn behind the ear (BTE), which picks up the sound and wirelessly transmits the signal to the ITM.  The ITM does not require modification to the teeth, and an oral exam is conducted by a medical professional prior to use of SoundBite.  SoundBite is removable, with normal daily functions such as talking and eating attainable with the device in place.

AAO-HNS Implantable Hearing Devices Policy Statement
The AAO-HNS policy statement, which was originally adopted in 1986 and has gone through periodic revisions (the most recent in 1/2013), addresses implantable hearing devices that can be used as part of a procedure to provide relief of hearing impairment.

The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Inc. considers the implantation of a percutaneous or transcutaneous bone conduction hearing device, placement of a bone conduction oral appliance, and implantation of a semi-implantable hearing device or totally implantable hearing
