Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Etiology, Diagnosis, and Management
Dr. Kyle Stein

This program will review current concepts in the causes, evaluation, and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It will review important concepts for diagnosis and management, not only from a dental, but also medical perspective. Special emphasis on surgical treatment options will be covered.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the causes of obstructive sleep apnea
  • understand testing and criteria for diagnosing obstructive sleep apnea
  • Identify treatment options available for management of obstructive sleep apnea
  • Understand the relative effectiveness of different obstructive sleep apnea treatment options

Course Goals
The course is designed for oral surgeons and orthodontists to discuss recent concepts related to the differential diagnosis and management of facial deformities which are amenable to correction by combined orthodontic and oral surgical treatment. Emphasis will be placed on patient selection and a problem-oriented approach to diagnosis. The responsibilities and goals of surgical and orthodontic treatment at the preoperative, operative, and postoperative stages of treatment will be discussed. Specific surgical techniques and considerations for each surgical procedure will be covered as well as post-treatment considerations. Experience in diagnosing, treatment planning and predicting actual cases will be provided. Audience participation is encouraged and time will be provided for discussion and review of participant case records. Course participants will be updated on the results of current research investigations in the area of surgical-orthodontic treatment. 

Over promotion and over prescribing of opioids has contributed to the current public health emergency we face in the U.S.. Dentists write less than 6% of acute use opioid prescriptions but generally prescribe very few tablets per prescription. To what extent are we contributing to the development of opioid Substance Use Disorders and how can we modify our prescribing behaviors to minimize patient risk? We will outline specific strategies designed to identify the safety of prescribing opioids based on individual patient characteristics. Patient education on safe pain relief will also be reviewed. Extensive and very current handouts will be provided to maximize the chairside value of this vitally important information.
The resurgence of alternative medicine and cannabis-related products has produced confusion and conflict among dental professionals and patients alike. During this program, we will discuss the dental treatment impact of popular systemic supplements as well as the effectiveness of nutraceutical products promoted for treatment of oral diseases such as caries, mucositis, gingivitis and periodontitis. We will conclude by discussing reliable information sources and step-wise strategies for evaluating and managing patients using or considering the use of nutraceutical oral health products. A practical and detailed handout will be provided to allow participants to apply this information to their practice.
