How to setup Bluepro mandibular advancement device ?
What is a mandibular advancement device ?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is one of the most common sleep disorders. Mandibular advancement splint is primarily prescribed to treat sleep-disordered breathing, particularly obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring.
A mandibular advancement device or anti snoring orthosis is a dental orthosis worn overnight to avoid snoring. Anti snoring mandibular advancement orthotics are made from specific medical materials to prevent side effects. A mandibular advancement device is an ideal and easy-to-use anti-snoring solution.
Indication of treatment :
- Jaw backwards (Retrognathia of the chin)
- Continuous and noisy snoring
- Snoring in all positions
- Light to moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome
- Intolerance to continuous positive pressure treatment (CPAP / PPC)
These disorders are often associated with relaxation of the throat muscles during sleep, leading to narrowing or blockage of the airways. The brace works by keeping the lower jaw in a forward position during sleep, preventing airway obstruction.
Specific indications for mandibular advancement device include cases of mild to moderate sleep apnea, as well as situations where other treatments like continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy are poorly tolerated or ineffective. Patients suffering from significant disorders, but without severe sleep apnea, can also benefit from this mandibular orthosis.
The appliance is designed to clear the upper airway and facilitate airflow during sleep by moving the lower mandible forward a few millimetres.

Why choosing our mandibular advancement orthosis ?
Choosing a Bluepro mandibular advancement orthosis can offer several benefits for individuals with conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or snoring :
- Non-invasive treatment: unlike some other treatments for sleep apnea, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, mandibular advancement orthosis are non-invasive. They don’t require wearing a mask or using machinery during sleep.
- Improving sleep quality: by advancing the lower jaw forward, advancement orthosis help keep the airway open during sleep, reducing the frequency of breathing pauses and snoring. This can lead to improved sleep quality and daytime alertness.
- Comfort: many people find mandibular advancement orthosis to be more comfortable to use compared to CPAP machines. They are typically custom-fitted to the individual’s mouth, which can enhance comfort and reduce irritation.
- Portability: orthosis are generally small and easy to transport, making them convenient for travel. They don’t require electricity or special accessories.
- Customization: advancement orthosis can be tailored to fit each individual’s mouth, ensuring a proper fit and maximizing effectiveness. They can also be adjusted as needed for optimal comfort and efficacy.
- Long-term compliance: due to their comfort and ease of use, some people may find it easier to adhere to oral appliance therapy compared to other treatment options, leading to better long-term compliance and outcomes.
It’s important for individuals considering a mandibular advancement orthosis to consult with a healthcare professional, such as a dentist or sleep specialist, to determine if it’s the right treatment option for their specific needs and condition. Additionally, proper fitting, adjustment, and follow-up care are crucial for ensuring the effectiveness of the mandibular advancement orthosis therapy.
