Dental Sleep Medicine Saves Lives

One of the best ways to help your patients is with dental sleep medicine. When you learn how to diagnose and treat obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially deadly condition, you will be helping them live a healthier and potentially longer life.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

If you are an avid reader of the DSM Solutions Blog you’ll know that obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that affects billions of people all over the world.

If you have read most of the dental sleep medicine blogs you’ll also remember that OSA often goes undiagnosed, especially if the person affected sleeps alone.

Undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea often gets worse as the person can sometimes wake up gasping for breath dozens of times every hour. With that many cessations in breath you can only imagine what it can do to the heart and the rest of the body.

If a person does not know they have obstructive sleep apnea they risk the following:

OSA Risks:

  • Daytime Sleepiness
  • Mood Swings
  • Depression
  • Problems Staying Awake
  • Loss of Libido
  • Morning Headaches
  • Neck aches

OSA also increases the risk of irregular heartbeats and high blood pressure. People with obstructive sleep apnea are also in the high risk category for heart attack and stroke. People with atrial fibrillation tend to have a higher percentage of OSA as well.

Dental Sleep Medicine Training

While obstructive sleep apnea is a horrible condition there is something that you and your team can do about it and that something is called dental sleep medicine training.

With this training everyone in your practice will learn how to diagnose and treat this potentially deadly condition. There really isn’t a better service to offer patients.

DSM Solutions

DSM Solutions created its customized dental sleep medicine training company to help dental practices just like yours offer new services to patients that normally wouldn’t be attracted to the practice.

When you become a part of the solution you’ll be surprised at how much your practice will grow.

Oral Appliance Therapy

One of the most essential parts of the training program is oral appliance therapy. You and your team will learn how to treat OSA using splint and mouth guard therapy customized to the patient’s needs.

Oral appliance therapy is the alternative to CPAP therapy. If you are unfamiliar, CPAP therapy is the most popular treatment for OSA. Sadly, it often goes unused and that is where oral appliance therapy comes in.
