Credit Hours: 6
This Workshop will provide an overview of how dentists participate in providing treatment for patients who have been diagnosed with either snoring or obstructive sleep apnea by using oral appliance therapy. This will be a review for clinicians who are already providing this service and will also serve as a comprehensive overview of how to initiate this service.
For the dentists who are familiar with the oral pharyngeal region, this initiation of service is easily carried out with the fabrication of the appliance. It is necessary to learn the new terminology, how to effectively collaborate with the sleep physician, how to interpret the diagnoses and how to follow the proposed protocol.
Participating in this new area includes the following:
(1) Providing screening for dental patients.
(2) Fabricating an oral appliance for patients referred by the physician.
Information regarding these two capacities will be provided in this Workshop.
Participating in this area of clinical practice offers several advantages. Most of the information collection, screening and clinical procedures can be performed by auxiliary staff who have been trained. Further advantages of providing this service include increasing the quality of life of patients and/or their bed partners and potentially generating income that is usually paid by medical insurance if patients are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea.
