This is an excerpt from an article which appears in the above paper. To read the full article go to and enter SDB (Sleep Disordered Breathing) in the search box.

What can dentists do to help patients suffering from SDB?
Concerning children, our study results highlight the clinical recognition of craniofacial features related to SDB.[5] Especially children with a convex facial profile could be candidates for early intervention and orthodontic treatment to prevent the progression of SDB later in life. Dentists may be the first health care professionals to recognise SDB in adults by identifying cranio-facial features related to an increased risk of SDB and by interviewing patients about possible subjective symptoms. Dentists are encouraged to refer possible OSA patients for further examinations to general medical practitioners.
