How does a Mandibular Advancement Device work?
During sleep, the muscles of the upper airway relax and the normally firm tissues become loose, resulting in the formation of bottleneck type structures which cause complete or partial obstruction of the airways.
This increases the velocity of air which causes vibration of the soft tissues which generate the noise of snoring.
Mandibular Advancement Devices are an oral appliance that reposition the lower jaw to keep the airway open. They are worn at night like a mouth guard.
Allowing movement of the lower jaw makes them comfortable for the patient.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is recommended for severe sleep apnoea and is the gold standard. However, compliance can be problematic, so oral appliances can also be considered in these circumstances.
Consists of one transparent splint for the upper jaw and one for the lower jaw.
The lower jaw is either held in a predetermined position or advanced by 2 connectors that are fixed latrally to the splint. The silensor-sl thus counteratcs the narrowing of the respiratory tracts.
Leone Telescopic and Leone Forward devices posture the lower jaw forward, open up the throat and restore the air flow.
The Telescopic features a telescopic arm which attaches the upper and lower appliance together.
The Forward upper appliance features an adjustable screw which applies pressure against the dorsal fin on the lower appliance.
