Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS)

How does a Mandibular Advancement Splint Work?

Mandibular Advancement Splint therapy is an effective treatment solution for snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. As a non-invasive treatment, the oral appliance fits like a mouth guard in your mouth during sleep, helping support your jaw forward and keep your airways open. Oral appliances that are custom-made for your dentition have been proven to be highly effective in combating snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.

If you have already had a sleep study, we will assess your degree of snoring or sleep apnoea, and your suitability for MAS therapy. A diagnostic sleep study can be arranged if you haven’t had a sleep study and it is assessed that you might have sleep apnoea. After your sleep study, your doctor will analyse your results and assess your suitability for oral appliance therapy. Your doctor will provide the most appropriate treatment for you and continue to monitor your progress.

Benefits of Mandibular Advancement Splint Therapy

The mandibular advancement splint, also known as an oral appliance, offers several benefits for individuals with snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Some of the key advantages include:

  1. Improved breathing during sleep: By repositioning the lower jaw and tongue, the splint helps to keep the airway open, reducing or eliminating episodes of breathing pauses and snoring associated with OSA.

  2. Increased comfort and compliance: Many individuals find oral appliances more comfortable and easier to use than continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, which leads to better treatment adherence.

  3. Non-invasive treatment option: Unlike surgical interventions, mandibular advancement splints provide a non-invasive approach to managing OSA, making them a preferred choice for some patients.

  4. Portability and convenience: Oral appliances are compact and easy to transport, making them a convenient option for individuals who travel frequently or have limited space.

  5. Customisable and adjustable: Mandibular advancement splints can be customised to fit the individual’s mouth comfortably and can often be adjusted to optimise their effectiveness over time.

With a custom-fit Mandibular Advancement Splint, you can improve your sleep quality, restore alertness, and revitalise your health without having to disrupt your current lifestyle. It’s a safe and effective way to address sleep-related issues and enhance your overall well-being.
