Sleep Apnea Appliances

There is a great variety of obstructive sleep apnea appliances but the most used and probably the most effective ones are the Mandibular Advancement devices that cause protrusion of the lower jaw. Those appliances look like normal mouthguards that are inserted on both the upper and lower jaw and are connected between them with hinges so as to hold the lower jaw forward during sleep time. This increases the diameter of the airway thus better breathing during sleep time.
