AIM To investigate the efficacy of a mandibular advancement device (MAD) (SomnoDent Flex™). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight consecutive patients with mild to severe OSA were given a custom-made two-piece device with vertical extensions to induce mandibular protrusion with an adjustable screw mechanism on the upper splint to achieve a gradual advancement. SomnoDent Flex is made with unique SMH BFlex material, Flex has a soft inner liner which maintains retention and offers patient comfort. Device retention is critical to effective treatment. All patients had polysomnography (PSG) before treatment (T0) and after 6 months (T1) with the appliance in situ.

AHI and ODI decreased significantly (p value < 0,05) with appliance after six months.

Abstract

AIM To investigate the efficacy of a mandibular advancement device (MAD) (SomnoDent Flex™). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight consecutive patients with mild to severe OSA were given a custom-made two-piece device with vertical extensions to induce mandibular protrusion with an adjustable screw mechanism on the upper splint to achieve a gradual advancement. SomnoDent Flex is made with unique SMH BFlex material, Flex has a soft inner liner which maintains retention and offers patient comfort. Device retention is critical to effective treatment. All patients had polysomnography (PSG) before treatment (T0) and after 6 months (T1) with the appliance in situ. RESULTS At the beginning the patients (22 males and 6 females, mean age 56.79 ± 12.33 showed apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) 23,90 ± 9,19, ODI 16,27 ± 11.34, LowSpO2 82,87 ± 6,04. AHI and ODI decreased significantly (p value < 0,05) with appliance after six months.
CONCLUSIONS SomnoDent Flex™ is effective in reducing apnea hypopnea index scores and improving oxygen saturation level.
