Sleep apnea and airway issues are major contributors to not only oral inflammation but systemic inflammation. Over 50-70 million Americans suffer from chronic disorders of sleep and wakefulness that can be first diagnosed in the dental chair. Learn how sleep issues contribute to systemic and oral inflammation and the many consequences associated with chronic sleep loss.
Dental Professionals are the key oral healthcare providers to identify inflammation in our patients. Clinicians will be able to identify inflammatory conditions related to comorbidities and identify signs and symptoms in the oral cavity that will alert you to an airway issue.
Learn how to perform an airway/sleep apnea assessment, and implement a sleep program into your office. You could help save someone’s life!
This course will help attendees providers:
1. Gain an understanding of common sleep apnea and breathing related issues.
2. Understanding how the inflammatory burden associated with sleep disorders contributes to co-morbidities affecting vascular, oral, and overall systemic health.
3. Identify the role dental health care providers have in assessing and treating OSA, oral health conditions, and complications associated with inflammation caused by the sleep related disorder.
4. Learn how to implement individualized treatment recommendations and assessments to help manage the patient’s overall health and well being.
