Dental Management of Sleep Disorders is the first text of its kind to focus on the dentist's role in treating patients with sleep-related breathing disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, sleep bruxism, and snoring. A practical clinical book, Dental Management of Sleep Disorders highlights the background to these problems, discusses the dentist's role in their diagnosis and treatment, and outlines clinical strategies and guidance. The book features a full discussion of the use of oral appliances, an overview of current treatment modalities, and investigates the relationship of sleep-related breathing disorders to dental and orofacial causes.

Organized to facilitate user-friendliness, the book begins with an overview of sleep medicine, providing the reader with a solid foundation in the human sleep cycle, classification of sleep disorders, and related medical and dental conditions. Subsequent chapters highlight practical application in the dental setting, including proper evaluation and imaging for sleep-related breathing disorders and instruction for both surgical and non-surgical treatments.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This excellent book is easy to read, is well illustrated, presents a comprehensive overview of SRBDs and is well documented. It belongs on the shelf of every dentist who treats OSA patients, can serve as an excellent text for any SRBD continuing education course for dentists starting out in this area and could be an excellent text for either undergraduate or postgraduate dental students should the subject of SRBDs find its way into the dental school curriculum. This book will not put you to sleep!!" (AAOP Council, Spring 2010)
