BIOMIMETIC ORAL APPLIANCE THERAPY: EPIGENETIC MODULATION OF ENDOTHELIAL DYSFUNCTION?
David Singh, PhD, DDS, DMD
Friday, September 15: 11:30AM - 12:30PM (1 CE Credit Hour)
 
ABOUT THE LECTURE:
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder, which is characterized by repetitive collapse of the upper airway during sleep. Preliminary data has shown that biomimetic oral appliance therapy can reduce the AHI to <5 in adults diagnosed with moderate to severe OSA (AHI < 29), and sometimes virtually eliminate it even in severe cases with an AHI >30. However, large scale studies by independent researchers are still required to reproduce these results to confirm the efficacy of this exciting, new approach. Moreover, the application of pediatric epigenetics embraces a firm promise in the prevention of sleep disordered breathing in young children.
