Step-by-Step: Airway Analysis + Oral Appliance Therapy

12 months ago

Case description

Airway concerns can present in a number of ways during a dental exam — from an enlarged tongue or tonsils to a high-arched palate, a retrusive jaw, worn-down teeth and more. Fortunately, dental practitioners are uniquely positioned to help detect and treat airway issues, such as sleep-disordered breathing, using comprehensive screening techniques, imaging technology and oral appliance therapy. Join Dr. Erin Elliott, a general practitioner, respected lecturer and published author, for a discussion on airway analysis and the pivotal role intraoral scanning and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) play in the treatment process. Dr. Elliott will highlight the four steps to successful implementation — Awareness, Diagnosis, Financials, Treatment — including case reviews featuring the Dentsply Sirona CEREC Primescan® and Orthophos CBCT in action. You will leave this webinar with confidence to understand: • What sleep apnea is and the different types • Health consequences of untreated sleep apnea • Creating awareness in the hygiene department • How to get a diagnosis from a sleep physician • An overview of treatment options • How an oral appliance works and oral appliance selection • An overview of record taking techniques specific to airway analysis
