Obstructive sleep apnea is a prevalent condition in our society. Although the treatment for this condition is usually through C-PAP, many patients and physicians alike are looking for an alternative and oral appliance therapy can be a good option for these patients. Oral appliance therapy to manage obstructive sleep apnea and primary snoring is a growing field that incorporates knowledge from both the medical and dental perspectives. This lecture provides an overview of the current concepts on dental sleep medicine. Participants will learn about the pathophysiology of obstructive sleep apnea, and the role that a dentist can play in the management of obstructive sleep apnea as part of a multidisciplinary team approach.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the role of dentistry in the management of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea in adults.
- Review the contraindications and adverse effects of oral appliance therapy.
- Identify which obstructive sleep apnea patients are candidates for oral appliance therapy.
