This Dental Vlog discusses the role of dentistry in airway assessment, and discusses the importance of the airway, especially with regards to sleep and overall health. Obstructed airways can increase the effects of diabetes, increases the risk of strokes, heart disease, obesity, and the rate of cancer. Obstructive sleep apnea has a huge impact on mental health and physical health.
