Does an Oral Appliance Really Work? Absolutely!Both the American Sleep Disorders Association and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommend dental oral appliances for snorers and people with mild to moderate sleep apnea as a first line of defense. Also for patients who prefer, do not respond, or have compliance issues with CPAP machines. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine further states that dental oral appliances should be fitted by qualified dental personnel who are specifically trained and experienced in the overall health, the temporomandibular joint, dental occlusion and associated oral structures. Our doctors are fully qualified by this standard.
Dental Medicine Providers Patient Data
Data was analyzed from a sample of 200 of our patients. Six of these patients did not complete therapy for various reasons. For those that had completed therapy, the average length of treatment was 30 weeks (from 1st examination through final sleep study) with patients being seen approximately every 3 to 4 weeks.
These patients fell into all 3 categories of sleep apnea…Mild, Moderate, and Severe. Definition: Categories determined by their AHI Index. This index is used to assess the severity of sleep apnea based on the total number of complete cessations (apnea) and partial obstructions (hypopnea) of breathing occurring per hour of sleep.
Mild 5-15 episodes per hour
Moderate 15-30 episodes per hour
Severe greater than 30 episodes per hour.
People diagnosed with “mild apnea” (49 patients)… On the average, this group experienced a 61% reduction in their AHI scores. 35 patients tested to be completely apnea free.
People diagnosed with “moderate apnea” (69 patients)…On the average, this group experienced a 62% reduction in their AHI scores. 36 patients went from the moderate classification to the mild classification and astonishingly 24patients tested to be completely apnea free.
Finally, people in the “severe apnea” classification (74 patients) had a 72% reduction in AHI. 24 patients were now in the moderate classification and 32 fell to the mild stage. 17 patients went from severe to completely apnea free.
All these patients reported a better quality of sleep, overall improvement in their health and their social life.
