Course Description

Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) describes a group of conditions that disrupt normal sleep and breathing patterns in patients of all ages. Common SDB includes primary snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS), and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is frequently undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or undertreated which can lead to significant morbidity and reduction in the quality of life. SDB is caused by various medical issues and anatomic factors and is best treated in a multidisciplinary approach. Dental professionals can play a critical role in screening and treating patients with SDB.

This course will:

-Summarize various interdisciplinary treatment options for SDB

-Review SDB and oral dysfunction screening protocols

-Discuss clinical indications, risks and management of disordered breathing using mini-implant assisted rapid palatal expansion (MARPE) protocol, specifically using the Maxillary Skeletal Expansion (MSE) device

-Provide tips for patient education and suggest ways to build a treatment team for patients at risk for or diagnosed with sleep (or daytime) disordered breathing
