PURPOSE: Oral appliances (OAs) are commonly used as a noninvasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). These devices are worn during sleep and create mandibular anterior traction to enlarge the upper airway. Continuous use of the device is essential for the success of OA therapy, but some patients stop using the OA for various reasons. The purpose of this research was to investigate complications in OA therapy that might prevent continuous use of these devices. METHODS: The progress of 90 OSAS patients who visited Tokushima University Hospital and underwent OA therapy was investigated with a mailed questionnaire...

PURPOSE: A lingualized occlusion (LO) for complete dentures reduces lateral inferences and occlusal force contacts and direction; thus, LO is theorized to be more suitable for patients with compromised ridges than fully bilateral balanced articulation (FBBA). However, no studies have yet provided evidence to support LO in edentate patients with compromised alveolar ridges. The purpose of this study was to compare LO and FBBA in edentulous individuals with compromised ridges. METHODS: Sixty edentulous individuals were randomly allocated into groups and received dentures with either LO or FBBA...
