Sleep disordered breathing (SDB - snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) - affects tens of millions of people worldwide. Sleep-disordered breathing is a worldwide epidemic with health and economic consequences that range from annoying to deadly. Currently, treatment of snoring and OSA calls upon a mix of modalities and a coordinated team of clinicians. Positive air way pressure, surgery, and therapy with oral appliances are frequently effective in managing the sleep-induced unstable air way. Those who place their health in the hands of sleep and dental professionals are best served if these clinicians can focuson the proper development of the upper airway immediately after birth and then work as a team to recognize and manage anyabnormalities in breathing and facial morphology as early as possible.
