Abstract

Snoring and sleep apnoea are common. The demand for sleep medicine services has increased exponentially since the recognition of sleep apnoea as a disease in the 1960s. The involvement of dentists in the treatment of sleep apnoea has increased. This article provides an overview of the disorders and options for management. Clinical Relevance: It is important that dentists are aware of the problem of sleep disorders and the potential they have to help in their management.
