MAD devices for sleep

Mandibular advancement devices (MAD) is a type of dental devices that is used to treat sleep apnea. It works by holding the lower jaw in a forward position, which helps to keep the airway open during sleep.

A MAD device is custom-fitted to the individual user. It is worn in the mouth, similar to a mouthguard, while sleeping.

This device works by gently pushing the lower jaw forward, which helps to keep the airway open and prevent the soft tissues in the throat from collapsing and blocking the airway during sleep. This can help to reduce the number of apneic events (periods of interrupted breathing) and improve sleep quality.

A MAD device is usually well tolerated and can be an effective treatment option for mild to moderate sleep apnea. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, and it’s important to speak with a healthcare professional to determine if this type of device is right for you.
