abstract

  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition of partial or complete upper airway obstruction leading to increased resistance to airflow and potential cessation of breathing during sleep. Effective treatment of OSA is challenging and there has been greater recognition by the medical and dental disciplines. By understanding the rationale, indications, benefits, risks and success of the various treatment options available, clinicians will be able to make more informed treatment recommendations in patient management.
