Despite such growth, Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) could be challenging in terms of predictability and workflow efficiency, resulting in many clinicians being reluctant to incorporate “Sleep & OAT” into their clinics. However, most of these challenges can now be addressed by utilizing new technologies in dentistry; resulting in improved and predictable clinical workflows,patient experience, quality of care and access to care.
This program will review the importance of Sleep & Airway Management in comprehensive inter-disciplinary treatment planning and how airway & sleep disorders, if left untreated, could adversely impact the long-term prognosis of dental treatments. It will also provide a practical step-by-step guide for implementing a simple & predictable“Sleep and Airway Management” program; utilizing easy to implement systems, improved patient communication & education through Intraoral scanning, & 3D imaging AND a fully digital workflow for OAT.
