Research Involving Novel Tooth Microphone has Potential to Propel the Field of Dental Sleep Medicine Forward

Sleep apnoea has many serious medical consequences, especially if it has occurred over a long period of time. This is why a lot of treatments are currently being develop to treat this sleep disorder. Sleep apnoea is also becoming the focus of various groups of medical professionals, including dentists. At the recent 22nd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine held in Baltimore, clinical research into sleep apnoea was presented, one of which involved the use of a novel “tooth microphone,” which is used to record night time respiratory sounds. This device is a highly sensitive intraoral audio sensor which has therapeutic, diagnostic, and commercial potential to help monitor compliance with oral appliance therapy (OAT).
