TH310 - Nightguard or Lifesaver? - AirwayCentric Nightguard 2019
Time: 8:30 - 11:30 AM
Room: Omni, Omni International Ballroom F
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

The American College of Prosthodontics recently published a position paper on oral appliances for airway including night guards. They caution against fabricating a typical flat plane CR splint in bruxism patients as up to 40 percent close the airway and worsen snoring and sleep apnea. Eighty-five percent of airway compromised patients are still undiagnosed and comprise at least 20 to 25 percent of current patient population. The ADA recently passed a resolution stating dentists should screen patients for airway issues. Most dentists fabricate night guards but don’t know if they are opening or closing the airway. This lecture will integrate TMJ, bruxism and obstructive sleep apnea management and discuss alternate night guards and oral devices.

Saturday Courses

Time: 9:30 - 11:30 AM
Room: GWCC, GWCC B409
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

Epigenetic factors or factors other than DNA have collided to produce smaller airways and higher incidence of sleep disordered breathing. Half of current night guards actually close the airway and worsen snoring and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). The dental profession is well poised to become "AirwayCentric." Early intervention in children can prevent ADD and other neurobehavioral disorders through AirwayCentric orthodontics. Airway trumps everything in dentistry as we start to understand the role of the tongue, palate, maxilla and mandible in SDB. Every dental procedure can either open or close the airway. In this course, find out, "Are you AirwayCentric?"
