Oral appliances may be either fixed or adjustable and are available in many different styles with as many as 40 different patents in existence.
Some are custom designed to fit the individual’s mouth after impressions are made, and must be prescribed by a dentist, oral surgeon, or ENT physician with sleep medicine experience. Others are considered one-size-fits-all.
They are easy to insert and remove and tend to have higher compliance rates than CPAP. Younger patients who have moderate sleep apnea, lower BMI, and smaller neck sizes are most likely to see positive results from oral appliances.
