A Prosthodontist's role is not limited to removable, fixed or implant supported dentures. The treatment of sleep Apnoea with the use of oral appliances has been underutilized and traditionally, they have been provided mainly in a hospital setup. This article reviews the available options for the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders with an emphasis on oral appliance therapy and a case report of a patient suffering from sleep apnea.
