Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is a serious and lifelong medical condition that affects 750,000 Australians. Data released by Deloitte Access Economics in 2011 showed that the incidence of OSA increases as we get older. OSA is a chronic, lifelong medical condition that can affect your sleep, health and quality of life. It has been linked to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, work and driving related accidents and stroke.

One of the favorites types of mouthpieces are the devices that are adjustable and allow for a more custom dental fitting. Adjustability allows for the movement of the lower jaw forward relative to the upper jaw. Generally, the more forward in position, the wider the airway becomes. This, in turn, reduces wind turbulence, which reduces or eliminates snoring. Some of these devices use a screw-like motion to adjust and move forward. Others use a ‘squeeze and adjust’ technique.
