Oral Appliance Therapy for Treating Snoring and Sleep Apnea: Management and Mismanagement 2018
As oral appliance therapy for sleep-disordered breathing has become a medially accepted treatment modality in appropriate cases, more dentists are “testing the waters” to see if this is something that can be incorporated into their practices.
While often the results of treatment are very gratifying, other cases are more disappointing, leading to frustration for all members of the sleep team, dissatisfied patients and possible legal implications. Not to mention the possible repercussions of the entire profession’s reputation in the sleep disorders treatment community being tainted.
This presentation is for dentists who wish to continue their journey in dental sleep medicine as well as for those who only want to advise their patients on how to get appropriate care for their sleep-disordered breathing difficulties.
