AbstractThe objective of this study was to evaluate long-term dentofacial changes in Chinese obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients treated with a mandibular advancement device (MAD). Lateral cephalograms in natural head posture were obtained from 67 consecutive OSA patients (mean age = 46.9 ± 8.9 years) treated with an MAD. The cephalograms were obtained at start of treatment (T0), after 1 year (T1), 2 years (T2), and 3 years (T3) of treatment. The lateral cephalograms were digitized twice, and the average of two readings was used for statistical analyses. Small, but statistically significant changes occurred in some dentofacial variables. The lower anterior facial height steadily increased during the observation period, and this increase was significant for the T0-T1 and T1-T2 periods and marginally significant for the T2-T3 period. A significant increase in the mandibular plane angle was observed during the T0-T1 and T2-T3 periods only. Significant reductions in the overjet and overbite were observed for the T0-T1 period but not thereafter. Statistically significant dentofacial changes were observed in this study, but they were of small magnitude. The overjet and overbite changes observed mainly occurred at the initial stage of treatment. © 2005 by The EH Angle Education and Research Foundation, Inc.
