Course Description:

Sleep Apnea is a condition that affects more than 80 million Americans, yet less than 10 % of this population is ever diagnosed. As a general dentist, one has the ability to screen THOUSANDS of patients each year, and ultimately improve their lives. Before treating any condition though, one must fully understand the science behind the disease, along with the materials and protocols. This course will explain the medical principles necessary for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea by the general dentist. The materials, technology and clerical needs will be referenced throughout the course, aiding in the interactive learning experience for the participant. Putting these pieces together will quickly build word of mouth referrals, providing a low-stress, highly profitable  area of practice for the dentist.

Course Objectives:

  • The definitions and terminology related to sleep disordered breathing.
  • The sleep cycle, normal/abnormal sleep and its importance to overall health.
  • The multi-systemic implications of sleep and oxygen deprivation.
  • How to interpret a PMD (Portable Monitoring Device) for the Diagnosis of O.S.A .(small group participation)
  • How to implement sleep study data into treatment planning for the O.S.A. patient (group participation)
  • How to use Acoustic Rhinometry/Pharyngometry as an objective means of assessing the airway and managing treatment success.
  • Record Taking and Bite Capture techniques ( small group participation)
  • Appliance selection, adjustment and common pitfalls of appliance therapy (small group participation)

Attendees will be furnished a continental breakfast and lunch today.
