If you are snoring or have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnoea, you may have been told to consider using a Mandibular Advancement Splint, also known as MAS. A mandiublar advancement splint fits over the teeth and gently pulls the jaw forward from its normal position. Our Brisbane dentist has partnered with Somnomed, makers of one of the worlds most researched and evidence based sleep appliances, to help our patients with sleep apnoea.
A mandibular advancement splint works by gently pulling the jaw forward. The aim is to prevent the walls of the airway collapsing during sleep when our bodies muscles relax as when the airway collapses, the walls vibrate against each other, resulting in snoring. Collapse of the airway also causes obstructive sleep apnoea, when the tongue and airway muscles collapse to partially or totally block the airway, telling the brain to wake up and gasp for more air. This prevents quality sleep, resulting in fatigue and other health problems.
This guide will help you evaluate the many Mandibular Advancement Splints available and why our Spring Hill dentist has chosen the quality of Somnodent sleep appliances.
