    Abstract

    This article describes the problems of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea, together with an outline of treatment options. The Glasgow approach, whereby patients are investigated at a sleep clinic and a custom-made mandibular advancement device is made in semi-soft material, is also described. We have demonstrated the acceptability and effectiveness of a simple appliance in patients with varying dental states, some with simple snoring and some with mild to moderate sleep apnoea. Our experience relates to around 260 patients, extending over a period of 4 years with good success. The simple intraoral device is recommended as a first line of approach for patients with problem snoring.
