Obstructive sleep apnoea is very common in middle-aged patients, although it can affect any age, and it involves a serious breathing problem that is associated with snoring, daytime sleepiness, poor mode, and concentration as well as other serious medical problems such as heart attack and stroke.

Treatment of Obstructive sleep apnoea is multidisciplinary and can include orthodontists, surgeons, respiratory specialists, and other specialists.

Treatment approaches start with conservative treatment such as sessions of smoking, reducing alcohol consumption and losing weight.

This is usually combined with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) appliances during sleeping.

Alternatively, the orthodontist can prescribe a special appliance called Mandibular advancement appliances.

Mandibular advancement appliance is used during the nighttime and aims to move the bottom jaw forward to reduce the risk of airway obstruction during sleeping.
