Oral Appliance Therapy – A few facts and quotes.
OAT is quickly becoming a leading therapy instrument in sleep conditions and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) treatment. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) officially declared the use of the dental appliance as an appropriate first-line treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) for specific qualifying patients based on comprehensive, long-term evidence showing its efficacy.
In a survey of the Apex360 Editorial Advisory Board in 2015, panellists were asked ‘What was the most significant trend or change you saw in the dental industry in 2015’. Lou Shuman, DDS, CAGS, President and CEO, Cellerant Consulting Group responded: The most significant trend was the medical community's increased recognition of dentistry's vital role in solving sleep breathing problems. Business and practitioner interest in the sleep sector grew significantly as a result of the potential impact of oral appliance therapy (OAT) in treating sleep apnea and snoring.
San Francisco, California, Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global sleep apnea devices market is expected to witness substantial growth owing to high prevalence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Downsides of urban lifestyle such as long working hours, obesity, diabetes, and anxiety have resulted in increased sleep disorders, consequently driving sleep apnea devices demand. Leading market players have invested heavily in the development of compact therapeutic devices, which is expected to favorably impact sleep apnea devices market growth. Lack of patient compliance and discomfort caused by the devices may pose a challenge to industry participants.
Published on March 18, 2015 – Sleep Review Oral appliances have been increasing in popularity as an alternative treatment method as they are less invasive and expensive than CPAP. Frost & Sullivan anticipates that the US oral appliance market will double by 2020, with custom appliances seeing five times the revenue increase during that period.
