Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is characterized by an obstruction in the upper airway due to the pharyngeal collapse during sleep. Mandibular advancement devices have gained success and large popularity as a non-invasive treatment for OSAS. Nevertheless, the effects of mandibular advancement devices were poorly investigated in literature. To this aim the paper proposes a procedure to achieve a numerical simulation model useful to assess the stress/strain distribution on the temporomandibular joint and periodontal ligaments caused by the mandibular advancement. The findings suggest that the mandibular roto-translation induced by the MAD provoke high stress on the molars and premolar teeth.

Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is characterized by an obstruction in the upper airway due to the pharyngeal collapse during sleep. Mandibular advancement devices have gained success and large popularity as a non-invasive treatment for OSAS. Nevertheless, the effects of mandibular advancement devices were poorly investigated in literature. To this aim the paper proposes a procedure to achieve a numerical simulation model useful to assess the stress/strain distribution on the temporomandibular joint and periodontal ligaments caused by the mandibular advancement. The findings suggest that the mandibular roto-translation induced by the MAD provoke high stress on the molars and premolar teeth.
