ABSTRACT
The article presents comments on the review of studies, which examined control appliances for knowing about obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) in sleep disorder patients. When compared, oral appliances (OAs) were found to be better than control appliances. However, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) was not found to be satisfactory. Although difficult to tolerate sometimes, CPAP is a highly effective therapy for OSAHS. The more tolerable option is the use of OAs.
