Join us for a free webinar – Simplified Appliance Selection and Avoiding Side Effects with your Dental Sleep Medicine Patients
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 – 7:30 pm Central
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jamison Spencer
We know how confusing it can be with the many oral appliances that are on the market. We also know that the last thing you want to do is cause your patient to have a problem that they didn’t have before sleep appliance therapy, like TMJ pain or a change in their occlusion. To help answer those questions, we sought out the expertise of Dr. Jamison Spencer.
In this free webinar, just for clients and friends of DPS, Dr. Spencer will discuss:
- Practical procedures to help you choose an oral appliance that your sleep patient will be more likely to tolerate, while minimizing jaw pain and patient frustration;
- The best appliance to use for patients with issues like lateral bruxism or who are missing several teeth;
- Things to look for in your examination that may make a patient more likely to have side effects, and how to explain these things to the patient in advance;
- How to avoid the most common side effects of tooth movement and bite changes; and
- What to do when your sleep patient reports “jaw pain.”
