How mandibular advancement therapy helps?
These devices help in preventing snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by creating a passage for air through the mouth. Such a device holds the mandible, that is lower jaw forward, and as a result, of a person never runs out of breath while sleeping.
As the jaw is held forward, the airway becomes quite free. This is because the tongue and other muscles covering the airpipe are dragged and prevented from going back into the same position. Thus, the chances of collapse of the air pipe reduce to a great extent. The strength and capacity of such collapsible also experience a significant increase and sleep apnea can be gotten rid of using a mandibular advancement device.
