Pediatric Airway Development in Orthodontics

Jan 26, 2019 1:00pm ‐ Jan 26, 2019 1:40pm

Can orthodontists really aid in the enlargement of pharyngeal airways in growing children and what are the norms? A positive correlation between dento-facial patterns and pharyngeal airway measurements as a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been well established in the scientific literature. Orthodontists are often in a unique position, compared to our medical peers, to screen, triage, and treat children suffering from Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) because of our understanding of the craniofacial complex. At the very least, our treatment plans must be “Airway Friendly” on all patients. This presentation will focus on the understanding and clinical applications of those relationships using everyday case examples, and documented with low dose CBCT.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the relationship between dento-facial patterns and the pharyngeal airway.
  • Readily and safely screen (using low dose CBCT) for children with small airways who either have OSA, are at risk for OSA, or are at risk for developing OSA later in life.
  • Identify how orthodontics can aid in pharyngeal ariway development.

Beyond Straight Teeth: How 3D Airway Imaging is Elevating Orthodontics into a Vital Healthcare Specialty

Jan 26, 2019 1:40pm ‐ Jan 26, 2019 2:20pm

The creation of a 3-D virtual patient using CBCT imaging is now a reality. Simply focusing on the teeth is underutilizing the power of our orthodontic treatment to improve not only a patient’s smile, but their physical health as well. This presentation will focus on how to integrate CBCT into overall patient care. It will also discuss the importance of airway imaging and dynamic modeling in treatment planning. Dr. Carlson will use numerous case examples to share his story of practice transformation since installing his first CBCT machine in 2008. The advantages of a three-dimensional approach in diagnosis, airway analysis, treatment planning, and patient communication will be discussed. In addition, he will discuss some of the challenges that may make it difficult for clinicians to change from two-dimensional diagnosis to three-dimensional diagnosis and why this change is essential for the future of orthodontics.

Learning Objectives:

  • Incorporate airway health into their practice.
  • Evaluate the advantages of a 3D vs. 2D practice. Why once you switch, you will never go back to 2D.
  • Comprehend of the fundamentals of CBCT technology and dosimetry.

Dental Sleep Medicine: Beyond First Impressions

Dental Sleep Medicine: Beyond First Impressions

Jan 26, 2019 2:40pm ‐ Jan 26, 2019 3:20pm

The American Dental Association, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine have published guidelines and policies that describe the role and responsibilities of dentists in managing sleep disordered breathing (SDB). Dental providers who wish to treat such patients in their practices should be knowledgeable about these recommendations and recognize that their responsibilities go beyond simply taking impressions and delivering an oral appliance. Orthodontists have skills that are particularly suited to managing patients with SDB.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how dentists collaborate with their physician colleagues to manage patients with sleep disordered breathing (SDB).
  • Describe the responsibilities of dentists in managing SDB in patients.
  • Summarize differences in dentists' role in managing patients with SDB as described by the American Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Another Brick in the Wall: Incorporating Sleep into Your Orthodontic Practice

Jan 26, 2019 3:20pm ‐ Jan 26, 2019 4:00pm

While orthodontistists are uniquely poised to incorportate sleep into orthodontic practices, there are signficant challenges in actually doing so. The orthodontist will need to understand the challenges and discern to what capacity they will incorporate sleep into the practice. From simple screening to more advanced complex case management, building of a sleep practice will come with numerous challenges. Creating a medical practice within your orthodontic office can be rewarding, but there is much that can upset the apple cart.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize and understand several challenges to incorporating sleep medicine in an orthodontic practice.
  • Evaluate the interactive role the orthodontist can play with the patient's physician.
  • Comprehend that success in case management of each sleep patient may be defined differently based on case presentation and the fluid nature of sleep disordered breathing.

How to Start Managing SDB in an Orthodontic Practice

Jan 26, 2019 4:00pm ‐ Jan 26, 2019 4:40pm

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB) are a hot topic in healthcare, due to the amount of people with such conditions, and the fact that people had permanent sequelae or die from it when untreated. All healthcare communities are bringing awareness to these conditions, and orthodontists can also play a very important role. The present lecture will show how to incorporate risk-assessment for different ages, communicate with different specialists, and provide additional services to our new and existing patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Incorporate risk assessment in a busy orthodontic office.
  • Comprehend the role an orthodontist may play when dealing with SDB and OSA.
  • Evaluate how a CBCT may help in identifying patients at risk of SDB or OSA.

ENT Perspectives on OSA

Jan 27, 2019 8:00am ‐ Jan 27, 2019 9:00am

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has become the primary reason to perform an adenotonsillectomy (T&A) in children. This lecture will present a practical approach to the management of pediatric OSA. Recently, there have been published and updated clinical practice guidelines and clinical trials on the diagnosis, surgical indications and perioperative management of children with OSA. The lecture will use an evidence based approach to answer practical dilemmas that face clinicians such as: who needs polysomnography? What are the criteria for overnight observation? And, how do you manage a child with persistent OSA after T&A?

Learning Objectives:

  • Familiarize themselves with clinical practice guidelines and clinical trials on pediatric OSA.
  • Implement an evidence based approach to the diagnosis and management of pediatric OSA.
  • Utilize a practical approach to managing a child with persistent OSA after T&A.
