Description

Sleep apnea is a developing area of dentistry. Based on widespread discussion, the relationship between dental treatment and sleep apnea is being defined based on what is known and what is not known. The AAO formed a task force on sleep apnea and orthodontics to develop a whitepaper that can be used as guidance in the practice of orthodontics. While this effort is not yet concluded the highlights of the emerging whitepaper will be shared.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of incorporating information on sleep apnea into practice.
  • Evaluate how the practitioner can work with other health care providers to address sleep apnea.
  • Define the rold that orthodontics should play in diagnosing and treating sleep apnea.
