“Sleep Disordered Breathing Correlates with your Total Body Health So… “Treat the Cause”!

 

This faced paced introduction to sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) provides concise yet comprehensive overview of the physiology, diagnosis and medical and dental consequences of snoring, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS).

The path physiology of SDB, involving both anatomical neuromuscular factors, will be explained in an understandable fashion.

The increased risk of serious oral health as well as systemic health problems will be tied in to our role as dental professionals.

Almost all of the dentistry we do is to restore the oral environment that has been destroyed by SBD. Almost all of the medications we take are to treat symptoms of SDB.

 

Course Objectives:

Attendees will appreciate the necessity of including airway evaluations into their regular protocols. They will understand the difference between treating the symptoms and treating the cause of both dental and medical problems.

Course Outcomes:

Attendees will likely become interested in furthering their education in this very important area of dentistry.
