Heart Attack, Stroke, Obesity: Is Dentistry to Blame?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is an insidious and treacherous pandemic killer linked to craniofacial causes
Screening effectively for OSA must no longer be considered “boutique” and MUST become mainstream FOR EVERY DENTIST! Just as a neuromuscular balance is important, we must include sleep disordered breathing conditions in our differential diagnoses.
Unfortunately, OSA is routinely unrecognized, under-diagnosed and poorly managed creating a tidal wave of ill-health. We’ve been adept at changing lives and now, the ONUS is on dentistry to start Saving Lives!
- Better Understand the OSA- Craniofacial anatomy connection
- Appreciate how OSA is a “Root Cause” of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and metabolic diseases
- Learn why TMD should now be considered just another symptom of OSA
- Be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of OSA sufferers
