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.

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.
