The Science of Craniofacial Sleep Medicine

Course Description

Sleep-disordered breathing ranges from upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and is a serious medical condition in both children and adults since it adversely affects the upper airway and breathing during sleep. Biomimetic oral appliance therapy differs from conventional mandibular advancement devices and traditional palatal expansion as it is used to correct the nasopharyngeal airway through epigenetic midfacial redevelopment in combination with mandibular correction for the oropharyngeal airway, in order to improve the upper airway in both children and adults. Over 50 published studies have indicated that correction of sleep-related breathing disorders is possible using this novel approach for nonsurgical upper airway remodeling.

Course Objectives

  1. Understand normal craniofacial growth and development
  2. Recognize the effects of Western culture on growth and development
  3. Know the importance of nasal breathing facial and dental clues

Integrating Sleep and Airway into Your Practice

Course Description:

Susie will facilitate break-out group discussions on the reality of integrating sleep and airway into a dental practice—the risks and the rewards. What are the risks? Staff being afraid of change? Patients not being open to having the dentist talk to them about sleep and airway? Doctors who are too busy to add anything else to their day? Through discussion groups, she will help course attendees look for ways to minimize these and other risks in order for practices to reap the rewards.

Course Objectives:

  • Understanding that change is hard
  • Understanding that having an implementation strategy makes change easier
  • Understanding how to integrate sleep into an already busy schedule and make it a success
  • Understanding the benefits of treating sleep and airway—for the practice owner, the staff, and the patients

Interpreting Home Sleep Tests

Course Description
During this course, Dr. Chopra will review at-home sleep tests and explain how we move between sympathetic and parasympathetic states and how these result in stable versus unstable sleep. He will cover heart rate and breathing during sleep and how that is connected to sympathetic and parasympathetic predominance. Dr. Chopra explains how to look at a sleep test, including the spectrogram, the hypnogram, the Sleep Quality Index, sleep pathology, sleep stability, and oximetry data. In addition, he reviews when an HST is not indicated for use.

Course Objectives

  1. Understand sympathetic and parasympathetic states 
  2. Review stable versus unstable sleep
  3. Understand the spectrogram and the hypnogram 
  4. Understand the sleep quality index
