Treating Sleep Apnea With Dental Appliances

On April 7th, 2014, Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center in Secaucus hosted a lecture by Dr. Maria Sokolina, DDS, on Oral Appliance Therapy for the Management of Snoring and the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). According to Dr. Sokolina, patients who are experiencing sleep disorders would wear oral appliances during sleep to maintain potency of upper airways. By doing this, airways would be increased in their dimensions and reduce potential collapsibility. During the lecture, Dr. Sokolina spoke on several topics pertaining to sleep disorders including physiology of snoring and sleep disordered breathing, OSA diagnostic and treatment options. The effects of disrupted sleep on the growth and development of children with specific emphasis on the importance of early orthodontic evaluation and treatment were also discussed.

Dr. Maria Sokolina, DDS is an accomplished dentist who practices the latest techniques in dental sleep medicine and oral appliance therapy. She has completed hundreds of hours of continued education at such renowned institutions such as Tufts University, Dawson Academy, USDI and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Apnea. She is a leading authority on alternative solutions to the CPAP apparatus that is used for OSA.
