Creating custom fitted mandibular advancement devices, or MAD, is what we at Premier Sleep do best. The FDA has cleared more than 100 such appliances; we have extensive experience with enough of them to find the best match for each of our patients. What’s most important is that we know ‘one size does not fit all!’ There are many factors we take into account. One benefit of working with Premier Sleep is our experience in matching thousands of patients with just the right MAD.
MAD typically vary on the mechanism that is used to hold the jaw forward. Most MAD are made from acrylic, a common dental material; some are laser-printed from medical-grade nylon. The advancement mechanisms are usually surgical stainless steel, but nylon, acrylic, and nickel-free metals are used as well. No matter the material, every component has been approved for use by the FDA.
