Guimarães TM, Colen S, Cunali PA, Rossi R, Dal-Fabbro C, Ferraz O, Tufik S, Bittencourt L - Sleep Sci (2015)

Bottom Line: This study aimed to present a possible to OSA treatment with MAD in over complete upper and partial lower dentures.The patient, a 38-year-old female with mild OSA, was treated with a MAD.The respiratory parameter, such as apnea-hypopnea index, arousal index and oxyhemoglobin saturation was improved after treatment.

ABSTRACT
Treatment with a mandibular advancement device (MAD) is recommended for mild obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), primary snoring and as a secondary option for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, because it has better adherence and acceptance. However, edentulous patients do not have supports to hold the MAD. This study aimed to present a possible to OSA treatment with MAD in over complete upper and partial lower dentures. The patient, a 38-year-old female with mild OSA, was treated with a MAD. The respiratory parameter, such as apnea-hypopnea index, arousal index and oxyhemoglobin saturation was improved after treatment.

Mentions: The patient was informed that the treatment would be a therapeutic trial, and there was a possibility that the treatment would fail. As the amount of force that the device would apply to the prosthesis was unknown we did not have sure if the MAD would move these prothesis. Fig. 1 shows the oral condition of the patient with and without the prosthesis installed.
