MANDIBULAR ADVANCEMENT DEVICES (M.A.D.s)


M.A.D.s are cheap, convenient, and most importantly it provides instant relief when they work. Base on statistics, it work brilliantly for around 80% of snorers, and I would certainly advise making M.A.D your first choice if you are still exploring the various options of resolving your snoring problem.

Unlike other sites, I do not believe in comparing the different types of M.A.D.s that are out in the market, as they each have their own strength and weakness, though I think I have the best device here.

M.A.D.s come in 3 different types
(1) the professionally fitted devices, that are customized for each patient by a dentist experienced in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. It will cost around USD$1200 to USD$2000 for the device, excluding the pre and post consultation charges.

(2) the do-it-yourself (DIY) devices, cost around $50 to $200
The professionally fitted devices are a bit better, but you can still get a great result with the DIY devices. Personally, I don't think the extra cost of the professionally fitted devices justifies the benefits.

(3) the ready made devices (typically known as boxing mouth guard, gumshield etc), cost around $10 to $50. They are cheap, but they are manufactured in a pre-formed shape in various sizes but with nearly no adjustment to fit the user's mouth.
