Regarding apnea cases that are mild to moderate (mild > moderate), is an oral device just as effective as a CPAP machine for treating symptoms? I've been on CPAP for a number of years, and recently was retested. I wiegh 80 lbs less now than when I had my first apnea study done years ago. The lab people told me it looks like my apnea severity rating will drop to mild or moderate (it was tested at the severe level originally, years ago).
So, I'm wondering...maybe an oral device (specially crafted dental device that locks the jaw forward) may be preferable to a CPAP this time around? What are peoples' experiences and knowledge regarding this issue?
