ELC20-NCE13: Sleep Apnea: Implications for the Periodontist

November 3 @ 9:15 am - 10:00 am CST

Speaker

Steve Carstensen 

Program Track: Emerging Concepts and Innovative Therapies

As more people and medical providers become aware of sleep apnea, periodontists are going to be treating patients at risk of the disease or in therapy once they have been diagnosed. Research shows strong connections between sleep apnea and general inflammation. This lecture will connect the dots between sleep apnea and periodontitis, and touch on how sleep apnea is diagnosed and managed by physicians and dentists.

Educational Objectives:

  • Discuss OSA diagnosis and therapy with their patients.
  • Gain insight into one possibility why some patients are not responding to treatment.
  • Share common language with dentists and physicians while discussing airway problems.
