Oral Appliances for Sleep Disorders

Helping your patient choose the right oral appliance for sleep disordered breathing

Oral Appliances for Sleep Disorders is a 90-minute educational DVD intended to provide guidelines and tools to help dentists efficiently evaluate whether a patient has obstructive sleep apnea, and instruct them in the use of oral appliances as treatment options. The DVD describes what kinds of patients are good candidates for oral appliance treatments, overviews the types of appliances available, and offers instruction in mouthpiece selection and fitting, as well as good practices in follow-up appointments. The DVD also helps dentists compare the appliances' advantages with those of other treatment options.
