The most commonly prescribed treatment for Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) which includes snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) and sleep apnoea (OSA) is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), but with the high non compliance and intolerance of this treatment, oral appliances in the form of Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs) are a very plausible and highly effective alternative.
If you’re suffering from disturbed sleep, you’re not alone. It is estimated that over 1.5 million people in the UK suffer from the condition, and it is known that more than 80% have not been diagnosed or treated. Globally there are over a billion people who have this debilitating condition.
