Biography :

Nico de Vries will focus on teaching, research and patient care in the rapidly developing field of dental sleep medicine. Sleep-related disorders are increasingly being diagnosed. According to recent estimates, for instance, more than 400,000 people in the Netherlands have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). This condition is characterised by repetitive pauses in breathing during sleep (an apnea) and is caused by a relaxation of the muscles whereby the tongue and soft tissue in the throat obstruct the airway. It is also associated with health risks such as excessive drowsiness during daytime, cognitive decline and cardiovascular problems. Dental and oral surgery treatments are playing an increasingly important role in the treatment of sleep-related disorders. In his research, De Vries will concentrate on, among other things, the possible link between OSAS and bruxism and the predictive value of sleep endoscopy.
