OSA is a serious chronic medical condition with repeated collapse of the airway in the throat during sleep, causing breathing to be reduced or stop regularly, snoring, affecting sleep quality and increasing risk of cardiovascular conditions like heart attack and stroke. Some cases can be managed with custom oral appliances or corrective jaw surgery. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons and orthodontists at NDCS are partners of specialist sleep teams of Singapore General Hospital and Changi General Hospital and they work together to evaluate, educate and treat patients with such conditions. Multidisciplinary appointments and referrals are co-ordinated through our OSA Clinic coordinators.
