Mandibular advancement devices (MADs) are specially designed oral appliances that effectively address sleep-related breathing disorders like sleep apnea and snoring.
By gently moving the lower jaw forward, mandibular advancement devices help maintain an open airway during sleep, facilitating better breathing and reducing body strain. This leads to improved sleep quality and significant relief from the symptoms associated with sleep apnea and snoring. Experience the benefits of MADs and enjoy restful nights and better overall well-being.
