Description

We are being bombarded with the potential role of dentistry is sleep medicine. and yet only a fraction of those who learn about sleep medicine have successfully added these concepts to their general practice. We will teach not only the concepts of sleep medicine, but emphasize the challenges for the general dentist that need to be addressed successfully to help your patients with sleep disturbed breathing conditions. Dentistry should be the number one portal of patients to sleep medicine. Once the condition is understood and the dentist understands the potential role that can be played in screening our patients, we provide a very necessary service to our patient base. The decision to proceed with learning how to treat with oral appliance therapy requires a change in our practice model that must be appreciated before that decision is made intelligently. That process will be reviewed in detail in this introduction to dental sleep medicine.

Objectives

Objectives
1. use the basics of sleep medicine to help screen their patients for sleep disordered breathing 2. make appropriate referrals to sleep medicine for an appropriate diagnosis 3. be in a better position to decide if further education to learn to provide treatment with oral appliance therapy is desired 4. avoid treatment that may otherwise have been instituted that may not be in our patient's best interest. 5. understand the role of oral appliance therapy in sleep medicine and why the suggestion from medicine that it be used only in mild and moderate cases may be less than accurate.
