[Health] MAD and CPAP both cause dental side effects, MAD more significantly
#1
MAD and CPAP both cause dental side effects, MAD more significantly
Quote:At 2-year follow-up, MAD therapy resulted in significant dental changes when compared with baseline values. In MAD therapy, overjet and overbite decreased with 1.1 ± 1.8 mm and 1.1 ± 1.2 mm respectively. With CPAP therapy overjet and overbite decreased significantly with 0.2 ± 0.5 mm and 0.3 ± 0.5 mm, respectively. Both groups also showed significant changes in molar occlusion. After a 10-year follow-up, significant and more pronounced changes were seen in overjet and overbite. In MAD therapy, overjet and overbite decreased with 3.5 ± 1.5 mm and 2.9 ± 1.5 mm respectively when compared with baseline values. In CPAP therapy, overjet and overbite decreased with 0.7 ± 1.5 mm and 0.8 ± 1.4 mm respectively when compared with baseline values.
Quote:This study demonstrates that MAD and CPAP therapy result in significant changes in dental occlusion. These changes appear progressive and more pronounced with MAD compared to CPAP therapy.
