ORAL APPLIANCE THERAPY FOR OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA
Oral appliances treat obstructive sleep apnea by keeping the airway open in one of three ways: by pushing the lower jaw forward (a mandibular advancement device or MAD), by preventing the tongue from falling back over the airway, or by combining both mechanisms. The most common type of oral apnea appliance, a MAD is often adjustable so that the dentist can move the jaw further or reduce the advancement as necessary. Apnea appliance therapy helps many people who have trouble tolerating traditional CPAP therapy.
