Occlusal Splints, Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Anti-Snoring, Mandibular Repositioning

Definition : Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)/anti-snoring occlusal splints designed for placing inside the mouth for use while a patient sleeps. These devices help avoid inspiratory noise produced by the vibration of the pharyngeal soft tissues (i.e., snoring) by increasing the pharyngeal space, repositioning and stabilizing the lower jaw and bringing it forward. These splints usually consist of custom-made devices made of plastic that are fitted on the teeth. Prefabricated thermoplastic devices that are fitted to the jaw by softening the device in hot water and then biting down on it to get a proper fit (known as boil-and-bite devices) are also available. Mandibular repositioning OSA/anti-snoring occlusal splints are intended for patients whose breathing problems are related to the jaw position. The splints may also be used to provide relaxation to the masticatory muscles to help in other mandibular repositioning treatments. These devices are typically positioned in dental offices.
