Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) is an under-diagnosed condition that is suffocating many persons in the night. NMD plays a vital role in the treatment of OSA. Various oral appliances are recommended as a first-line therapy for the treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Dental sleep medicine is an area of dental practice that focuses on the use of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep disorder.
Only a dentist especially trained in NMD can effectively provide oral appliance therapy for sleep disorders as he possesses the technical skill and knowledge in dental sleep medicine. Dental schools do not provide any training in oral appliance therapy, so all dentists cannot provide optimal care for adults with sleep disorders. Neuromuscular dentistry is a specialised branch of dentistry that deals with sleep disorders and can provide oral appliance therapy to treat snoring, OSA and other sleep disorders. It’s all in the bite registration. Unlike the forced 70% of maximum protrusion with only Muscle Recruitment Tests and a vertical that is only assumed, NMD shows us which bite would provide the most convenient position for the mandible upto the fraction of a millimetre; with no extra stress on the muscles.
