AS17B06A - Oral Appliance Treatment: The Good, Bad and Ugly

‐ Apr 22, 2017 9:15am

Oral appliances are an accepted first line of treatment for a wide range of adults with obstructive sleep apnea. As specialists in dentofacial orthopaedics, orthodontists are ideally suited to deliver this increasingly popular OSA treatment modality and should be well aware of both the associated benefits and complications. This presentation will focus on the latest evidence regarding the effectiveness of oral appliance treatment of OSA, as well as review the management of the most common side effects.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the effectiveness of oral appliance treatment of obstructive sleep apnea in adults.
  • Recognize the side effects commonly associated with oral appliance treatment.
  • Propose best practices in long-term patient management.
