Is treating sleep apnea with dentistry as effective as CPAP?

While Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is considered the gold standard of care for severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), dental therapy has been recognized by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) as first line of treatment for primary snoring, mild and moderate OSA, and severe OSA if CPAP is not an option. Studies have demonstrated that CPAP has almost 100% efficacy if worn by patients, but the degree of compliance is much lower than OAT. Therefore OAT compares favorably with CPAP for total treatment effectiveness.
