Risks and side effects
Although a MAD can help limit sleep apnea symptoms and snoring, there can be side effects, usually mild, including: jaw and mouth discomfort, toothache, excess drooling, dry mouth or gum irritation.
MAD vs. CPAP
CPAP is the gold standard for treating obstructive sleep apnea, people do not always use it. About 50% of people using CPAP therapy eventually stop using it and leave their obstructive sleep apnea untreated.
In comparison with CPAP, MADs are portable and do not produce noise. They also do not require electricity!
