Oral or dental appliances or devices may be considered a treatment option for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy. Patients, with mild to moderate OSA, who used MAD, exhibited a significant reduction of apneas.
Changes in the position of the jaw or teeth have been occurred in patients using an oral device for a long time.
Oral or dental appliances are termed mandibular advancement devices (MAD) or mandibular advancement splints (MAS).


As the lower jaw is pushed slightly forward, the soft tissues and muscles of the upper airway are tightened thereby preventing obstruction of the airway during sleep. The success of a MAD is variable and assessment of the effectiveness of the treatment must be under the supervision of a qualified sleep specialist or dentist specializing in OSA oral appliances. The receding jaw could have caused the apnoea and pushing the bottom jaw out could effectively manage OSA. We have the qualification, experience and expertise to diagnose and present treatment options for your sleeping disorder.


MAD and other dental appliances such as Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS) and Tongue Rotating Device (TRD) showed an adequate long-term control of sleep apnoea compared to surgical treatment such as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP).
