Dental sleep medicine is probably the best thing you can provide for your patients. In fact, providing this amazing service can actually save lives.
Just like the other dental services you provide for your patients, helping someone get a better night’s sleep is a game changer and a life saver.
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.
