Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral Appliance Therapy


Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is a non-invasive treatment option for individuals suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other sleep-related breathing disorders. This therapy involves the use of a custom-made oral appliance that is worn during sleep to help keep the airway open and prevent episodes of apnea and snoring.

The oral appliance is typically made of soft, flexible material and is designed to fit comfortably in the mouth. It works by repositioning the lower jaw and tongue to prevent them from collapsing and blocking the airway during sleep. By keeping the airway open, the oral appliance helps to improve airflow and reduce the frequency and severity of apnea episodes.

OAT is often recommended for individuals who are unable to tolerate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. The standard treatment for OSA. CPAP involves wearing a mask over the nose and mouth that delivers a continuous stream of air to keep the airway open. While CPAP is highly effective, some individuals find it uncomfortable or inconvenient to use, leading them to seek alternative treatment options like OAT.
