Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) usage during the COVID-19 Pandemic

 

It is the position of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) that OAT should be prescribed as a first-line therapy for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) during the COVID-19 pandemic.  PDF Article

What is Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT)?

 

According to the AADSM, "Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)... A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health. Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway."  AADSM Link

Is Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) right for me?

 

Oral appliance therapy (OAT) is effective for treating patients with Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).  OAT can be an effective treatment for patients who prefer oral appliances over continuous positive airway pressure or who are unable to tolerate continuous positive airway pressure.  PDF Article

Unable to tolerate your CPAP?

 

Over 750,000 CPAPs are prescribed each year and they are the most commonly prescribed treatment of sleep apnea.  Unfortunately, most patients are unaware of other options.  Studies have shown that patients prefer an oral appliance over their CPAP, once they are aware of other options.

Despite the highly effective treatment CPAP offers, poor adherence limits its efficacy, with the proportion of patients maintaining a minimally acceptable level of CPAP usage at 17% after 5 years.  PDF Article
