Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is emerging as one of the most widespread and costly health issues in the U.S. OSA is known to affect more than 18 million Americans, including children, 85% of whom are undiagnosed.* The disease is characterized by upper airway obstruction, associated with repeated gaps in breathing and interrupted sleep. OSA is known to raise a person’s risk of serious medical problems such as:

  • heart attack
  • stroke
  • depression
  • hypertension
  • auto-immune disorders

An Orthodontic Approach

 

This course will provide you with an understanding of the physiology of sleep apnea and the current diagnostic and treatment options, as well as a new orthodontic approach and its protocols. The orthodontic approach is intended to provide patients with immediate relief from OSA, as well as changes to the airway that may address an underlying cause. We will demonstrate innovative technologies and convenient, cost effective processes to improve the diagnostic and treatment experience. This program is the first of its kind in the orthodontic industry, and includes a complete, evidence-based system to implement into your practice now.
