What is a Mandibular Advancement Device?
The mandibular advancement device (MAD) is a custom made dental device that increases the space of the airway passage, helping you breathe better while you sleep. There are different types of MAD’s, some which also stop the tongue from covering your windpipe. We will help you select the right device for your individual condition.
Is a MAD comfortable?
Mandibular advancement devices are made to be comfortable. They don’t restrict breathing through the mouth, so patients with nasal congestion can still breathe easily. Upon your first few nights wearing it, your MAD may cause a slight discomfort in the jaw, but the feeling goes away quickly.
