Dental Sleep Medicine
Question about Dental Sleep Medicine?
OSA is typically thought to be a condition that troubles adults but the truth is that it can trouble individuals of any age, including infants. In children, OSA can cause behavioral and attention-deficit problems. Research has linked enlarged tonsils and small structural features of the maxilla, nose, mouth, and throat to childhood OSA. OSA can be life-threatening and should be taken very seriously. OSA can only be diagnosed by a licensed medical professional and can be treated by a dentist with specialized training on these disorders. This disorder is diagnosed by a sleep study known as Polysomnography (PSG) or Home Sleep Test (HST). If you think you may be experiencing OSA, call our office to set up an appointment. We will be happy to coordinate any necessary testing, including sleep testing.
