Sleep Apnea Treatment in Denville, NJ

Sleep apnea may be related to mandibular deficiency, and occasionally this functional problem is the reason for seeking orthodontic consultation. Both the diagnosis and management of sleep disorders requires an interdisciplinary team and should not be attempted without assessment documentation, and referral from a qualified physician. Recent research suggests that oral appliances to advance the mandible can be effective, but only in patients with mild forms of sleep apnea, which must be established by polysomnography in a sleep laboratory before treatment in the orthodontic office begins.
