To anyone treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) patients - including pediatric patients - this burgeoning field is of the utmost importance. Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is increasingly recognized as a chronic disorder of dysfunctional breathing during sleep in children and can range from habitual snoring to OSA.
