Both snoring and sleep apnea occur along a continuum of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDR). Its most innocent manifestation is snoring which occurs when the tissues of the throat (soft palate, uvula, and back of the tongue) relax and vibrate against each other during breathing. Its worst manifestation is the complete cessation of breathing (apnea) with the lowering of blood oxygen levels (hypoxia). Dental treatment for sleep apnea and snoring is a revolutionary approach to sleep disordered breathing, and oral appliance therapy is a good choice for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
