    We have a patient that has been diagnosed with sleep apnea. She had wore a NTI nightguard for bruxism. I would like to know if anyone has done the Botox to treat bruxism with sleep apnea patients? Is there any additional precaution needed for treatment?

    Botox will be very beneficial for your patient for the bruxism. Are you treating patients in your practice who have been diagnosed with Sleep Appliance or referring these patients? If treating, which appliance are you choosing for your patient to treat her OSA?
