Oral Appliances Replace CPAP For Many
For almost forty years, many patients with mild-moderate OSA have received treatment with CPAP devices. CPAP is a continuous positive airway pressure device. CPAP has been considered the most effective treatment option. But unfortunately, CPAP devices are difficult to use and maintain. That’s why recent advances in oral appliance devices (like the ones developed by ProSomnus) may work better than CPAP for many patients. Oral appliances offer many practical advantages such as:
- Ease of use and maintenance
- Pocket-size portability
- Patient acceptance and higher compliance rates
