Sleep Apnea is the temporary stoppage of breathing during sleep, often resulting in daytime sleepiness. Dental sleep medicine deals with the management of sleep-related breathing disorders including: snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome, and obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening medical disorder that is more prevalent in males, and progressively worsens with advancing age and weight gain. Snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness are the two most common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea.
