Orthodontics and Sleep Apnea: Guidelines for Practice


May 4, 2019 8:35am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:05am

Description

Sleep Apnea has become an important consideration in dentistry. Based on widespread discussion, the relationship between dental treatment and sleep apnea is being defined based on a blend of speculation, experience, and available research. The AAO formed a task force on sleep apnea and orthodontics to develop a whitepaper that can be used as guidance in the practice of orthodontics. While this effort is not yet concluded the highlights of the emerging whitepaper will be shared.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of incorporating information on sleep apnea into practice.
  • Evaluate how the practitioner can work with other health care providers to address sleep apnea.
  • Define the role that orthodontics should play in diagnosing and treating sleep apnea.
