Surgical and Orthodontic Aspects of Sleep Breathing Disorders:

Recently, there has been much attention towards sleep-related breathing disorders (SBD) among orthodontic communities. Children with SBD can often develop distinctive facial characteristics. SBD in adults can result in serious morbidity and mortality. Treating these patients presents unique opportunities for orthodontists to collaborate with other medical specialties to improve a patient's health and treatment outcome. However, there are many opinions and claims related to this topic without proper research data. This presentation will discuss the most current scientific evidences regarding the relations between various controversial orthodontic issues and SBD.

  • Recognize the pathophysiology of SBD.
  • Learn how to evaluate potential SBD patients.
  • Apply the evidence based practice to deal with SBD patients.
