Course Instruction  | 

The M.A.D. (Mandibular Advance Devices) are intraoral night-time appliances which can treat snoring by acting directly on the mechanism which is the cause of it, by pushing the jaw forward. Mandibular repositioning pushes tongue forward and keeps epiglottis apart from uvula, thus solving the vibration of the soft tissues of the palate to the passage of air which creates the snoring sound. MAD appliances are also used for the treatment of sleep apnea (OSAS) as they can solve the obstruction of rear airway tissues by restoring breathing capacity during sleep. The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine reports that bimaxillary appliances made in the laboratory are more effective and, above all, allow a further gradual progress of 4-5 mm since the first check bite registration.

This course is specifically based on two of the most used appliances that boast clinical and scientific evidence in order to ensure maximum device efficacy, high safety standards, stability and comfort for the patient.
