For those that have tried every option there is such as cpap/apap but are having trouble with an advancement splint, or cpap or sleeping on your side, you might want to explore mandibular advancement which is just cutting your lower jaw and pushing it forwards.

Anyway I am posting a blog for it.

So a couple days ago, I had my two lower mandibular teeth removed(the two teeth sitting behind the lower fang teeth to advance my lower jaw forward. In 2 weeks, I'll be putting on braces to fix my bite up. That bite will ensure my malocclusion i.e. misalignment of my teeth is fixed up.

So far not a lot of pain even though I had dry socket, but I can tell that my teeth are now moving as a result of that.

Then in a year, after my bite is fixed up, I'll be going to the doctors to push my lower jaw forward and it's only the lower jaw that needs to be advanced for me.

The surgery is a long process, but should permanently cure OSA.

Come back in a year and tell us about it. Personally, there is no way I would do that. CPAP is soooo much easier. Hopefully this will work for you and you won't end up with a CPAP anyway.

Any update?

My ENT mentioned surgery to move BOTH my lower and upper jaws forward. I would need to be referred to surgeon to discuss it.

Still on braces so no advancement just yet until next year. The face changes and I reckon that this causes people to die without realizing it. I have seen what this condition does to people's mental health. Glad I got it fixed up early.I always like to see the problem for myself and I'll decide if I am cured or not. Not some idiot that reads it off a screen and goes by an arbitrary figure. CPAP helps definitely but not fully. One thing this taught me though of how important jaw alignment is and your oral health which affects everything in your body.

You wonder why oral health is so expensive yet they want you on 'medication' for help treating depression - what crap.
