Sleep Apnea

Mandibular advancement is used to assist with sleep apnea. The jaw is positioned forward utilizing a removable appliance. This allows more room for the tongue and prevents it from falling back occluding the airway. Partial airway obstruction results in snoring while fully closed airway causes apneic events. During sleep this causes breathing to stop resulting in gasping for air which interrupts sleep. This can occur up to 60 times an hour.
