MedicalResearch.com interviews Marie Marklund, DDS senior lecturer in the department of odontology, Faculty of Medicine Umeå University in Sweden.
MedicalResearch: What should clinicians and patients take away from your report?
Response: An oral appliance is highly effective in reducing obstructive sleep apneas and snoring. The treatment might also produce other benefits for the patients, such as reduced symptoms of restless legs. It is likely, that subgroups of patients who have specific sleep related symptoms such as headaches will benefit from this treatment, although this was not proven in the present study design.
