Dental Management of Sleep Disorders focuses on the dentist’s role in treating patients with sleep problems, chiefly sleep disordered breathing and bruxism. A practical clinical book, Dental Management of Sleep Disorders highlights the background to these problems, discusses the dentist’s role in their diagnosis and treatment, and outlines clinical strategies and guidance. The book features a full discussion of the use of appliances, an overview of current treatment modalities, and investigates the relationship of sleep disorders to dental and orofacial causes.
