It is the position of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) that oral appliance therapy (OAT) should be reimbursed as a first-line therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OAT has been deemed an alternate therapy for OSA,1, and numerous stud­ies have indicated that OAT is an effective treatment for sleep-related breathing disorders.2,3 The American Acad­emy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has also acknowl­edged that OAT should be considered if a patient does not wish to use Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) ther­apy.1
