  • chronic heart failure
  • atrial fibrillation
  • stroke
  • and it is associated with type 2 diabetes and depression.

How do Dentists help in OSA?

A sleep dentist is a regular dentist who is an expert in the area of Dental Sleep Medicine. They focus on the use of oral appliance therapy (OAT) to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

An oral appliance is a custom-fit, mouth guard like device worn only while you sleep. It keeps your airway open and unobstructed by supporting your jaw in a forward position to keep the upper airway from collapsing and blocking the airway.
