What is the role of Oral Appliances in treating Snoring/Sleep Apnea?

The gold standard for treating sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices. Oral appliances have a definite role in the management of selected patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and/or Snoring. Both Snoring and mild to moderate OSA can be treated with custom fitted dental appliances. Oral appliances are also an alternative therapy for patients with several OSA who cannot tolerate CPAP or who have undergone failed CPAP treatment attempts. These oral devices can shift the jaw and tongue forward which makes the airway larger and improves airflow.
