Mandibular Advancement Devices

Mandibular Advancement Devices, collectively called Oral Appliance Therapy is a non-invasive treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

What is oral appliance therapy?

Oral appliance therapy improves snoring and obstructive sleep apnea by favorably positioning the tongue and jaw to keep the airway open during sleep. Oral appliances are similar in appearance to mouth guards or retainers and are worn only while you sleep.

How does it work?

Oral appliance therapy works by keeping the soft tissue in the mouth from collapsing and obstructing breathing. Our specialized sleep dentist works with your physician to determine the type of appliance appropriate for you. As the appliance is introduced, we use acoustic reflection technology, called pharyngometry, to monitor changes in the airway and assure optimal positioning.

What are the benefits?

  • Non-invasive treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Significantly improves sleep apnea symptoms including oxygen saturation and daytime sleepiness.
  • Considerably higher compliance rates than CPAP.
  • Recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for treating mild to moderate sleep apnea, and more severe sleep apnea in patients who are unwilling or unable to tolerate CPAP.

What kind of results can I expect?

It will take several nights of wearing the device before you grow accustomed to it. Over time, most patients tolerate their device very well and experience significant improvements in snoring and sleep apnea symptoms.
