    Nonsevere obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is most often treated with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device or a mandibular advancement splint (MAS). However, patient compliance with these treatments is difficult to predict. Improvement in apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) is also somewhat unpredictable in MAS treatment. In this study, we investigated the association between Friedman tongue ...

    Bakgrunn Det er mye fokus på den positive utviklingen innen tannhelse i Norge, der statistikken viser at flere og flere barn er kariesfrie.
