Did you know that dentists play a key role in treating sleep apnea, and that there are hundreds of undiagnosed patients in your practice suffering from this condition? Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure, stroke, heart conditions and diabetes. Dentists have a unique opportunity to detect and treat this debilitating condition in patients who may never have sought help. This interactive lecture is designed to educate you on dental sleep medicine and how you can improve your patients’ overall health and quality of life while building your practice.
- Discuss an overview of sleep apnea and its health consequences if left untreated.
- Learn how to create awareness in the hygiene department and workflow without marketing outside your four walls.
- Discuss an overview of treatment options, how an oral appliance works and oral appliance selection.
