Mandibular repositioning appliances (tMRAs) designed with a titratable mechanism are effective to treat obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) but are not widely used, although many studies have proven their value. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of tMRAs in the treatment of OSAS on the criteria of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM; apnea/hypopnea index [AHI] < 5). Three hundred consecutive patients with a polysomnographic diagnosis of OSAS were referred… Expand
Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea using a custom-made titratable duobloc oral appliance: a prospective clinical study
TLDR
The present study has evaluated the efficacy of a specific custom-made titratable MAD in terms of sleep apnea reduction and observed a statistically significant decrease in AHI. 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
Current opinions and clinical practice in the titration of oral appliances in the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing.
TLDR
An overview of the different titration protocols described in the recent literature is provided together with a discussion of both the clinical and mechanical aspects of treatment. Expand
Effect of Mandibular Advancement Device Therapy on the Signs and Symptoms of Temporomandibular Disorders
TLDR
It seems that signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders do not necessarily increase during long-term mandibular advancement device therapy, however, it seems that patients with clinically assessed temporom andibular joint crepitation may discontinue theirMandibular advancements device therapy due to temporomAndibular Disorders. Expand
Oral Appliances in Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
Overall, the health outcome of mandibular advancement device therapy is similar to that of CPAP, probably due to the inferior compliance ofCPAP compared to MAD therapy, resulting in similar clinical effectiveness. Expand
Oral Appliance Therapy in Sleep Medicine
Oral appliance therapy provided by the dentist has become a well recognized means by which patients who have a sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD) may have an alternative to continuous positiveExpand
The Effects of an Oral Appliance in Obstructive Sleep Apnea Patients with Prehypertension
TLDR
A phenomenal increase in sleep apnea quality of life scores was observed in this time interval and the level of improvement in SAQOL was 240% at the end of a year. Expand
A Three Dimensional Imaging-Based Framework for Planning Maxillomandibular Advancement Surgery for the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
TLDR
Three dimensional image-guided predictive algorithms are proposed to improve the treatment planning and overall outcome of the MMA surgery and visualise and demonstrate the expected facial outcomes to inform patients and surgeons prior to this non-reversible surgery. Expand

  • CADTH technology overviews
  • 2010
TLDR
The intent is to provide a list of sources and a summary of the best evidence on the topic that CADTH could identify using all reasonable efforts within the time allowed, as well as to consider other types of information and health care considerations. Expand
Impact of type D personality on adherence to oral appliance therapy for sleep-disordered breathing
TLDR
Type D patients reported a significantly higher discontinuation rate when compared to patients without type D personality, and in continuing MAD users, no significant difference in perceived side effects was reported between the personality types. Expand

Clinical co-morbidities in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome treated with mandibular repositioning appliance.
TLDR
Insomnia was the most important factor compromising the success of OSAS treatment with IOMRAs, and the isolated presence of gastric, neurological, and rheumatic diseases, but especially their combination, reduces the perception rate of well-succeeded treatment with iomRAs. Expand
Mandibular advancement devices in 630 men and women with obstructive sleep apnea and snoring: tolerability and predictors of treatment success.
TLDR
The mandibular advancement device is recommended for women withSleep apnea, for men with supine-dependent sleep apneas defined by a lateral apnea-hypopnea index of < 10, and for snorers without sleep apnea. Expand

TLDR
These results do not support these MRS devices as first-line treatment for sleepy patients with SAHS, and symptoms, treatment efficacy and satisfaction, and subjective sleepiness were also better with CPAP than with MRS. Expand

TLDR
The systematic use of the IOMR indicates a clear improvement in the global quality of life as well as in the symptoms of patients with OSAS. Expand

TLDR
MAS therapy improves a range of symptoms associated with OSA and was significantly higher with the MAS than with the control device, but this was not so for objective sleepiness. Expand

TLDR
The long-term effect and tolerability of a mandibular advancement device are good in patients who are recommended the treatment on the basis of a short-term sleep recording, provided that the device is continuously adjusted or replaced with a new one when needed. 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

TLDR
Using the MAS significantly improved OSA: AHI decreased from 32.2 +/- 28.5 to 17.5 +/- 22.7 (p < 0.01) and arousal index decreased from 31.4 +/- 20.6 to 19.0 +/- 14.6 (p +0.01). Expand
