Mandibular Advancement Devices
The most common type of oral sleep appliance is a mandibular advancement device. It fits over your upper and lower teeth and holds your lower jaw (mandible)slightly forward as your sleep. This keeps your airway open by pulling the tongue and soft tissues forward, keeping them stable and firm. A dentist with experience treating snoring and sleep apnea – or one who focuses on dental sleep medicine- helps create a customized oral appliance.
