Night Guards, Splints, Snore Guards and Sleep Apnea Appliances: Picking the Right Piece of Plastic for Your Patient

Most dentists have VERY limited training in dental school regarding proper use of oral appliances for bruxism and virtually no practical training regarding appliances for TMJ problems, snoring or sleep apnea, yet patients want and need these treatments. In this presentation, Spencer will discuss the latest science involving appliance therapy and give a step-by-step approach to the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment planning. This information will allow the dentist to know what type of appliance to use, when to use it, how to fit it, and long-term effectiveness. Guidance is also given regarding bite registration techniques and fabrication of appliances "in-house" to save in lab costs and improve treatment outcomes.
