About The Author

Gilles J. Lavigne

Dentists are often the first medical practitioners to encounter patient reports or clinical
evidence of disorders such as sleep apnea, sleep bruxism, and sleep-disrupting orofacial
pain, providing them a unique opportunity to prevent the development or persistence of
conditions that strongly impact their patients’ lives. Since the first publication of this
clinical handbook, significant and exciting advances have been made in the field of sleep
medicine, and this updated edition gathers all of this new evidence-based knowledge
and presents it in focused, concise chapters. Leading experts in medicine and dentistry
explain the neurobiologic mechanisms of sleep and how they can be affected by breathing
disorders, bruxism, and pain, along the way guiding dental practitioners in performing their
specific responsibilities for screening, treating, and often referring patients as part of a
multidisciplinary team of physicians.
