Oral appliances (OAs) are devices that can be used in the treatment of sleep disorders, more specifically, sleep apnea. One of the main hurdles to development in the OA market is billing. It is essential that sleep dentists and medical doctor work collectively for the referral process, so that dentists participate in medical billing. The intricacy involved in medical billing where they have conventionally stayed aloof due the complication of insurance coding and settlements has retained many dentists away from these produces in the previous years. The bulk of OAs are remunerated by private coverage or out of pocket as Medicare has been inadequate in its readiness to consent them as a sleep apnea treatment.
The global sleep apnea devices market is categorized based on type and end-use.
By type: The therapeutic devices segment is expected to show promising growth by 2028 due to the growth in usage of oral appliances and its associated reimbursement.
By end-use: The sleep laboratories and hospitals accounted for the largest share of the global sleep apnea devices market in 2020 owing to growth in the number of sleep labs and sleep tests performed.
In the US, nearly 93% of the sleep apnea population uses only positive airway pressure (PAP). In contrast, parts of Europe use OAs more frequently as a primary treatment and they have become a standard of care. Some may attribute this to Europe’s socialized healthcare, which recognizes the cost benefits of OA treatments. With the ability to price cap payments to dentists, OAs are generally half the price, without out-of-pocket expenses. This makes it a less-expensive treatment for payers than traditional PAP. Others could fault insurance and PAP companies who have been slow to recognize alternative treatments to PAP. However, a few companies in the US are looking forward with mergers and acquisitions.
