Description

This course includes not only a review of the first course (Introducing Dental Sleep Medicine into Your Practice), but a more in depth examination of sleep medicine and dentistry’s role in identifying patients, helping them be diagnosed, and treating those who should be considered to receive oral appliance therapy. Much has been said about the dentist's "need" to diagnose sleep apnea and treat snoring. Despite the fact that it is a relatively "young" science,myths and exaggerations already abound regarding this critical subject. Itis true that dentistry could and should be the number one portal for patients into sleep medicine. What steps SHOULD the general dentist take in order to help benefit his patients? What factors will help him make a decision as general dentist as to exactly how involved he should become intreatment. In this two hour presentation we will review the principles of sleep medicine, and the role of dentistry in treating snoring and other obstructive sleep disorders. This honest look at sleep medicine will concentrate on the challenges that face dentists incorporating dental sleep medicine in their practices. Those viewing this presentation will begin to have a thorough understanding of dental sleep medicine and will be in a position to appropriately screen all their patients. As importantly they will have the needed information to make the informed decision as to whether or not they want to proceed to take the steps to incorporate oral appliance therapy in their offices and if so, what steps to take. The oral appliance review will help them select and insert appliances and monitor appliance use. They will have a realistic perspective on the possible untoward sides effects of appliance therapy on muscle and joints.
