Fifty to seventy million Americans suffer from a sleep related problem. Sleep related breathing disorders, such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, are at the top of this list. Less than 10% of these patients have been diagnosed. As dentists, we are in a prime position to be the first to recognize this disorder and to help steer patients in the right direction to get diagnosed. We also have the ability to help treat many of these patients, thus improving their quality of life as well as possibly saving their life!
