PROGRAM:

The science of Sleep Medicine and treatment of sleep
disorders have been going through explosive advances
in the past two decades. The significant morbidity and
mortality associated with Sleep disorders is well documented
in the literature. There is a growing interest among the
dental profession to learn how to treat patients with sleep
disordered breathing with oral appliances. This two-day
course will help dentists understand the basics of Sleep
medicine and philosophies of treatment of Sleep Disorders.
We hope that at the end of the course the dentist would
have an in-depth knowledge into the basics of sleep
medicine, dental sleep medicine and a good understanding
of when and how such a treatment modality could be
incorporated into Dental Practice. Such a course would be
a prelude to a full-fledged mini residency program for the
practice of Dental Treatment of Obstructive sleep apnea.

                  

Topics to be covered:

• History of Sleep Medicine.

• Sleep Neurophysiology.

• Sleep Apnea and Sleep Breathing Disorders.
