Do You Snore or Have Sleep Apnea? Get MAD!
Posted on January 13th, 2024
We don’t mean the emotion, though you just might be feeling it if you or your loved ones have been losing sleep because of snoring or obstructive sleep apnea. MAD is the abbreviation for Mandibular Advancement Device, and it’s a type of oral appliance that could help you and your family experience restful sleep again.
MADs work by keeping your mandible (jawbone) and tongue in a forward position to prevent airway restriction, which can cause snoring and the cessation of your breathing while you sleep. There are different types of MADs, but to ensure the most comfortable fit made of durable materials, we recommend scheduling a visit to Family Dental Practice!
Either way, it’s critical that you don’t ignore chronic snoring; if it’s due to sleep apnea, you’re three times more likely to develop diabetes or have a stroke, and 23 times more likely to have a heart attack. You deserve solutions that help you sleep better, so contact Family Dental Practice today!
