Dental devices, that pull the jaw forward, again, logical, seems like a great idea, should have worked better than it did, does work in enough patients that we are still doing it, but doesn't work quite predictably enough to be a mainstay treatment, certainly not of severe disease.

She said the patients she had with dental devices for treatment of sleep apnea all had their jaws go out of alignment in about a month. #-o
