Oral appliance therapy (OAT) has been used to manage sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD) for more than 20 years.

Dentists must understand the evidence-based medicine behind OSA and OAT in order to provide optimal patient care in this evolving field with a growing body of information that continue to challenge previously accepted concepts.
