Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a stoppage or partial stoppage of air flow during sleep has been gaining more attention as a Sleep Related Breathing Disorder. This treatable syndrome has many associated co-morbidities that can have severely detrimental effects on a person’s well being and general health. It has been estimated that 20% or more of the population suffers from some level of OSA, many of those are undiagnosed or unaware of their issue. Though a diagnosis must be made by a medical doctor, the dental community can be a first line of defense to screen and even treat many of these people with Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT). OAT has become a popular alternative for treating OSA for those intolerant to the traditional Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. This course will give dental professionals a high level overview of obstructive sleep apnea, consequences and treatment options including oral appliance therapy and how the clinicians can become involved in the treatment of OSA.
