Most dental practitioners would agree that there is nothing more rewarding than helping patients.

From replacing missing teeth to altering a smile, restorative and cosmetic dentistry is a god send to anyone who has decided on porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns or dental implants.

DSM Solutions helps people who snore and people who are suffering from a condition known as obstructive sleep apnea.

The Dangers of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Start following the DSM Solutions Blog and you will quickly learn everything there is to know about obstructive sleep apnea.

Referred to as OSA in the medical world, the condition causes a person, male or female, to wake up while asleep. You can only imagine how hard that is on the body.

Worse still is that those who sleep alone can live with the condition for years without even knowing it. That means they can wake up as many as 30 times every hour gasping for breath.

Not only does OSA cause moodiness and low libido, it can also cause serious health issues such as congestive heart failure. In addition, obstructive sleep apnea can cause daytime sleepiness putting your life at risk, especially behind the wheel.

Getting Started with Dental Sleep Medicine

It’s easy to start the process with DSM Solutions as the team has been helping other dental practices incorporate dental sleep medicine into their menu of services for decades.

As pioneers of DSM training, the team is dedicated to making it fun and easy to learn dental sleep medicine for your dental practice.

Customized Training for Your Dental Practice

Every dental practice is different and it would be foolish to think otherwise. Those differences are what set you and your team apart from the rest.

DSM Solutions prides itself on getting to know you and every member of your dental team. After all, your team is part of day to day operations so why wouldn’t you want them involved.

Your customized training program is beneficial for you and your team, but it is especially beneficial for your patients, and patients that you don’t know about yet.

DSM Solutions for Your Patients

Before you embark on your training program, take a moment to think about your patients. Have you ever asked any of them about sleep apnea? Have you ever brought up the subject and asked them if they snore or wake up often during the night?

While this may seem like an unusual subject to broach with a patient it is the perfect opportunity to find out more about your patient and his or her overall health. It is also the perfect time to talk about your new service.

Dental Sleep Medicine for Snoring and OSA

If you follow the DSM Blog you will recall that OSA, or obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that causes the sufferer to wake up as many as thirty times a night. They wake up because they are unable to breathe.

Obstructive sleep apnea causes the throat to relax. So much so that it narrows the airway passages. The airways are so narrow that it makes it impossible to breathe.

If the person can’t breathe the brain wakes them up so that they can resume breathing. As you can imagine this causes immense stress to the body and overall health. However, this therapy isn’t just for people who are suffering from OSA.

Dental Sleep Medicine for Snoring

If you snore you probably aren’t as annoyed as those in your household. While snoring by itself isn’t usually life threatening it can cause some sleepless nights for you as well.

Oral appliance therapy is used to treat both snoring and OSA and is just a portion of what you and your team will learn when you embark on your training journey.

Dental Sleep Medicine Training

If you would like to learn more about dental sleep medicine training, call, send a text or a direct message and talk to a sleep medicine expert from DSM Solutions today.

Like most doctors you became one to help people. Helping people is the nature of the industry with practitioners always seeking new ways to provide comfort and service. One of those services is dental sleep medicine.

Dentists have a huge opportunity to offer people more than dental care with one of the most exciting opportunities available to dental practices.

That’s right, both dentists AND their teams will learn a new service that most practices in the area probably don’t offer. If they do, they probably don’t diagnose and treat obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.

Dental Sleep Medicine Training

DSM Solutions has changed the game with an exciting service that will bring in a different kind of patient, a patient who wouldn’t necessarily visit your practice unless you offered what he or she needed. That service is dental sleep medicine.

Services that Help Your Practice Shine

DSM Solutions are the experts when it comes to dental sleep medicine. The experienced and thoughtful team understands that every practice is different.

That is why every dental practice receives a customized dental sleep medicine training package that is suited for the doctor and every member of the dental team.

That means that every team member is equipped to diagnose and treat obstructive sleep apnea.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

If you are following along but aren’t sure what obstructive sleep apnea is, become a subscriber of the DSM Solutions blog. To summarize, obstructive sleep apnea, which is also called OSA, is a condition that happens to men, women and children although it is most common in men over 50 and men who are overweight.

OSA causes the sufferer to wake up gasping for breath because the throat closes while sleeping. The throat relaxes so much that the airways become narrow. This makes the brain wake the person up so that they can start breathing again.

Customized Dental Sleep Medicine Solutions

If you are unsure, do your research. It’s a fact that people would rather use an oral appliance than CPAP therapy. CPAP therapy is uncomfortable and often times goes unused making it a useless solution for obstructive sleep apnea.

The alternate OSA solutions that you and your team will learn will help people sleep better. Best of all, the solutions are actually treatments that people will use.

DSM for the Best Solution

If you would like to learn more about dental sleep medicine for your practice, call or send a text and talk to an expert from DSM Solutions today.

Dental Sleep Medicine When it Counts

Dental sleep medicine training for DSM Solutions takes students one step further. That step teaches you and your team how to diagnose OSA. Unlike some institutions, DSM Solutions actually teaches you how to treat AND diagnose OSA.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is Dangerous

The sleep medicine experts from DSM Solutions understand how dangerous OSA can be.

If you are a subscriber to the DSM Blog you will know that obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially deadly condition that causes daytime drowsiness, low libido, morning headaches and dry mouth.

OSM causes the sufferer to wake numerous times every hour. Of course, people who sleep alone may never know they have OSA as the brain wakes them up so quickly that they fall back to sleep. People who wake up abruptly gasping for breath are usually diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea.

Dental Sleep Medicine Training

Dental sleep medicine training is designed for both doctors and their teams. This means that no one is left out of the loop when it comes to diagnosing and treating obstructive sleep apnea.

It takes teamwork to test and treat people who have OSA. DSM Solutions prides itself on making sure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to training.

Mild to Moderate OSA

Some of the symptoms people experience, including yourself or a member of your family may include:

  • Waking up abruptly
  • Loud snoring
  • Breathing cessation observed by others
  • Waking with a headache
  • Chronic dry mouth
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Insomnia
  • Low libido
  • Waking gasping for breath
  • Problems concentrating

Other symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include memory loss, irritability, hyperactivity and the need to go to the bathroom excessively while sleeping.

Fatigue and depression when added to the mix are also signs of obstructive sleep apnea.

A New Frontier with Dental Sleep Medicine

Most cosmetic dentistry procedures are already flooding the market with tooth straightening systems, in office whitening and same day dentistry. While all of these treatments are wonderful and will increase dental patient flow, none will bring in an entirely new patient base.

Sleep Apnea Training for Dentists

Unlike some sleep apnea training courses that only provide you with solutions to the problem, DSM Solutions gives you and your team the tools you need to both diagnose and treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. That’s right, you AND your team.

Another problem with other dental sleep medicine courses is that the dentist is the only one who ever learns anything. With DSM Solutions every team member will have hands on instruction so that they can learn everything there is to know about sleep apnea training for dentists.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Snoring

What is Dental Sleep Medicine Training?

According to the highly qualified team from DSM Solutions, dental sleep medicine training is designed to help patients, and potential ones, combat obstructive sleep apnea. While there is no cure, people with OSA see relief using oral appliance therapy along with other types of solutions that don’t include surgery.

DSM Solutions explains that surgery is a solution for obstructive sleep apnea. However, it is only a last resort. There are other treatments and techniques that work wonders for OSA.

CPAP Therapy for OSA

Most people have heard of CPAP therapy. If you haven’t it is the most common solution for obstructive sleep apnea.

CPAP therapy uses a hose that is connected to a machine. That hose is also connected to a mask that you keep on your mouth and nose throughout the night. CPAP therapy forces air through the airways keeping them open. This allows people with OSA to breathe freely without gasping for breath.

As you can imagine it does take some getting used to. Sadly, some people with OSA never get used to CPAP therapy and stop using the machine.

Dental Sleep Medicine Works

Dental sleep medicine works and is the gentle way to help people who suffer from OSA. Adding it to your list of dental services helps you help more people. Isn’t that why you became a dentist in the first place?

What is Dental Sleep Medicine Training?

Dental sleep medicine training provides dentists and their teams with all of the tools needed to diagnose and treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Using less intrusive methods, it helps the patient get a better night’s sleep using solutions such as oral appliance therapy.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Just to refresh your mind, as you will find everything you need to know in the DSM Solutions Blog, obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA is a condition that stops someone from breathing while they are sleeping. Because the back of the throat relaxes, for whatever reason, people gasp for breath waking up and going back to sleep 100s of times every night.

During your training, you will also learn these OSA risk factors and more.

  • Obesity, however not all overweight people have OSA and vice versa

Solutions for OSA

While CPAP therapy is the most common treatment, something else that you will learn in your dental sleep medicine training program, it isn’t the only way to combat OSA.

With CPAP being the most common, surgery is the last resort. Some people report no change a few months after OSA surgery having to go back to CPAP therapy and heavy prescription medications.

Oral appliance therapy on the other hand is an incredible way to help your patients get a good night sleep. Oral appliance therapy devices help keep the airways open and are designed for each patient.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

If you follow the DSM Solutions Blog, you will recall that OSA, short for obstructive sleep apnea, is a condition that affects billions of people all over the world. Here in the US millions of people are affected. The sad thing is some aren’t even aware they have OSA.

OSA causes the back of the throat to collapse or relax while sleeping. This makes it impossible for the sufferer to breathe.

Because the person can’t breathe, the brain wakes him or her up so that they can catch a breath. These episodes can occur twenty or thirty times an hour.

People who have OSA also experience the following symptoms:

  • Loud Snoring
  • Witnessed Breathing Cessation
  • Insomnia
  • Problems Staying Awake During the Day
  • Low Libido
  • Moodiness
  • Headaches
  • Dry Mouth

People at Risk

Although there is no certain factor that puts someone in the high-risk category for obstructive sleep apnea, some things make people more susceptible to OSA.

You could have OSA if you are:

  • Obese
  • Male
  • Postmenopausal
  • On Certain Medications
  • Over 65
  • A Heavy Smoker or Drinker

People who still have tonsils and adenoids, including children, and people who have a large neck, men over 18” and women over 16” are in the high-risk category for obstructive sleep apnea.

With dental sleep medicine, training you will be able to identify the signs and symptoms of OSA and learn how to treat the disorder as well.
