Oral appliances for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are worn during sleep to maintain the patency of the upper airway by increasing its dimensions and reducing its collapsibility. Oral appliances are a simpler alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). Over the last decade, there has been a significant expansion of the evidence base to support the use of oral appliances, with robust studies demonstrating their efficacy. This work has been underpinned by the… Expand
Long-Term Effectiveness of Two Oral Appliances for Obstructive Sleep Apnea : a Case Report
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a breathing disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of upper airway obstruction during sleep. Oral appliances have been used in patients with moderateExpand
ORAL DEVICE THERAPY FOR OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA
TLDR
Recent developments in oral devices (ODs) as an alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) treatment are highlighted. Expand
Biomimetic Oral Appliance Therapy in Adults with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
BOAT may be a useful method of managing severe cases of OSA in adults, and represents an alternative to CPAP and MADs, however, long-term follow up is needed to reach more definitive conclusions on these initial findings. Expand
Updates in oral appliance therapy for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
Consistent follow-up and management are needed to increase clinical success rates in OA therapy for OSA, and improvement of temporomandibular joint monitoring and management is recommended, although there is no scientific evidence suggesting consistent undesirable long-term effects of OA on the TMJ. Expand
Oral Appliances for the Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
The use of oral appliances has been more widely accepted over the last decade and the evidence to support the use of Oral appliances as a viable treatment option for patients with sleep apnea or who may only snore is only going to become more compelling. Expand
Long term complication of oral appliance for obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
Long term complication of oral appliance for obstructive sleep apnea Kang Jin Kyu Department of Oral medicine & Orofacial Pain, Wonkwang University Daejeon Dental Hospital oral appliance is known to be effective in mild to moderate OSA, and is relatively more tolerable for the patients compared to other treatment modalities. Expand
Comparative effects of two oral appliances on upper airway structure in obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Results indicate that the patterns and magnitude of changes in upper airway structure differ between appliances, and further studies are warranted to evaluate the clinical relevance of these changes, and whether they can be used to predict treatment outcome. Expand
The difference between two oral appliances in treating obstructive sleep apnea: a case report.
TLDR
Two designs of mandibular repositioning appliances used to treat OSA are described, concluded that oral appliances may assist in the management of OSA. Expand
Oral Appliances in Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
TLDR
The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and theAmerican Academy of Sleep Medicine have released joint clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and snoring with OAT. Expand
Aveo Tongue Stabilizing Device For Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
It is concluded that Aveo TRD was effective in treatment of 60% of mild to moderate OSA and side effects occurred frequently to the extent to prevent 40% of patients to stop use of the device. Expand

Practice parameters for the treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea with oral appliances: an update for 2005.
TLDR
These practice parameters are an update of the previously published recommendations regarding use of oral appliances in the treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea and research to define patient characteristics more clearly for OA acceptance, success, and adherence is needed. Expand
Effect of oral appliance therapy on upper airway collapsibility in obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Preliminary data indicate that MAS therapy is associated with improved upper airway collapsibility during sleep, and the mediators of this effect remain to be determined. Expand
Efficacy of a Herbst mandibular advancement device in obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
The study population was evaluated on the basis of a successful response to mandibular advancement, and the baseline MP-H was found to be significantly shorter in the responders than in nonresponders, while the soft palate length showed a significantly greater shortening in responders after treatment. Expand
Oral appliances for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea: a review.
TLDR
The literature of OA therapy for OSA now provides better evidence for the efficacy of this treatment modality and considerable guidance regarding the frequency of adverse effects and the indications for use in comparison to CPAP and UPPP. Expand
The mandibular repositioning device: role in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
It is suggested that the mandibular repositioning device (MRD) is useful in the long-term treatment of patients with OSA of mild to moderate severity. Expand
Efficacy of positive airway pressure and oral appliance in mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Although both CPAP and mandibular advancement splint effectively treated sleep-disordered breathing and sleepiness, the expected response in neurobehavioral function was incomplete and may be due to the splint having a lesser therapeutic effect and CPAP being poorly tolerated and therefore used less in this patient group. Expand
Efficacy and co-morbidity of oral appliances in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea: a systematic review.
TLDR
Although CPAP is apparently more effective and adverse effects of OA treatment have been described, it can be concluded that OA therapy is a viable treatment for, especially, mild to moderate OSAHS. Expand
An individually adjustable oral appliance vs continuous positive airway pressure in mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
TLDR
Even in patients with mild-to-moderate OSAS, CPAP is the more effective long-term treatment modality, and the better compliance seen with the ISAD may be advantageous. Expand
Occlusal and skeletal effects of an oral appliance in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
The data suggest that in addition to control polysomnographic examinations, regular dental follow-up visits are mandatory when lifelong OSAHS treatment with an OA is being considered for patients with obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea. Expand
Mandibular advancement oral appliance therapy for obstructive sleep apnoea: effect on awake calibre of the velopharynx
TLDR
Assuming this effect on upper airway calibre is not eliminated by sleep, mandibular advancement oral appliances may reduce the severity of obstructive sleep apnoea by maintaining patency of the velopharynx, particularly in its lateral dimension. Expand
