What Is An Oral Appliance?

An oral appliance is the commonly used term for a Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS). It is worn during sleep to manage snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. The appliance works by temporarily advancing the lower jaw and tongue forward. This reduces throat constrictions and opens the airway while sleeping to prevent snoring and sleep apnoea. Oral appliances are medically proven and considered to be one of the best treatments for snoring. It is also considered a frontline solution for patients diagnosed with sleep apnoea. Many people diagnosed with sleep apnoea are unable to tolerate a CPAP machine and are only able to use it sporadically. Oral appliances are a proven and more comfortable alternative.

What Do The Medical Experts Say?

I am using an oral appliance myself and recommending them to my patients who have problems with snoring and sleep apnoea. I’m very impressed with the comfort and effectiveness of the new 3D printed nylon appliances.
Mr. Ed Pudel MBBS FRCS

ENT Surgeon, Melbourne, Australia

Oral appliances are easy to tolerate, effective and it costs a lot less than CPAP. 30 to 40 percent of our patients can’t use CPAP, and these patients almost always find the dental appliance helpful. I would recommend it as a first-line treatment… If I had sleep apnoea I would choose an appliance first.
Dr. Guillaume Buiret

Head of Sleep Medicine, University of Sydney, Former President of the Australasian Sleep Association

Research over the last 10 years has identified oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnoea as an important alternative to the CPAP machine.
Prof. Peter Cistulli

Head of otolaryngology, Valence Hospital in Valence, France
