Millions of people have problems with snoring and sleep apnea and the treatment of these conditions using oral appliances has exploded in the past few years. As more and more patients are diagnosed with sleep apnea and with the high rate of patient non-compliance on Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), oral appliance therapy will become an extremely popular treatment option. This lecture includes the basics of normal sleep patterns, snoring and sleep apnea in adults and in children, and the dental professional's role in screening, referral and treatment of snoring and sleep apnea using oral appliance alone and in conjunction with CPAP as part of a multidisciplinary team. In the afternoon, hands-on workshop, the relationship between so called "dental parafunction" and sleep apnea will be addressed with an evidence-based literature review and a hands-on practical training in bite registration techniques, fitting a temporary oral appliance and learning how to choose an oral appliance based on patient needs and desires.
