The Science of Craniofacial Sleep Medicine

Course Description:
Sleep disordered breathing ranges from upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and is a serious medical condition in both children and adults since it adversely affects the upper airway and breathing during sleep.  Biomimetic oral appliance therapy differs from conventional mandibular advancement devices and traditional palatal expansion as it is used to correct the nasopharyngeal airway through epigenetic midfacial redevelopment in combination with mandibular correction for the oropharyngeal airway, in order to improve the upper airway in both children and adults.  Over 50 published studies have indicated that correction of sleep related breathing disorders is possible using this novel approach for non-surgical upper airway remodeling. 


Course Objectives: 

  • Realize the correlation of craniofacial growth upper airway adequacy
  • Appreciate the principles of craniofacial epigenetics  
  • Introduce the principles of non-surgical upper airway remodeling
  • Gain preliminary knowledge of biomimetic oral appliance therapy
