Am I at Risk ?
Positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy is nearly always eﬀective, but some people have a hard time getting used to it. Oral appliances tend to be easy to tolerate, but may not be as eﬀective as PAP. Some people who use PAP therapy also have an oral appliance for when they travel. Sometimes an oral appliance is used together with PAP. This combination therapy reduces the pressure of the PAP machine needed to keep the airway open.
