Introduction: OSA is a condition characterized by frequent episodes of upper airway obstruction that occurs during sleep, resulting in reduction of blood oxygen saturation and frequent arousals from sleep. Several studies have been reported for conservative management of OSA which includes intra oral appliances such as the tongue retaining device and mandibular advancement device with the latter being more commonly used. The probable mechanism of action of the mandibular advancement device is to enlarge the retroglossal space by anterior displacement of the tongue and thus reduce pharyngeal tendency to collapse. However, most mandibular advancement given in the literature appliance designs are fixed.

Summary: In this case report, obstructive sleep apnea was treated with a semi adjustable mandibular advancement device using inter arch wires by incorporating a 70% of maximum protrusion and increasing the vertical dimension by 5 mm. It not only decreased the signs and symptoms but also added to patient comfort, thus increasing the compliance.
