Most dentists have VERY limited training in dental school regarding proper use of oral appliances for bruxism and virtually no practical training regarding appliances for TMJ problems, snoring, or sleep apnea and yet our patients want and need these treatments. The instructor will discuss the latest science involving appliance therapy and will give a step-by-step approach to the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment planning that will allow the attendee to know what type of appliance to use, when to use it, how to fit it, what to look for in a follow-up, how to adjust it, and what to do long-term. In this very practical course guidance is also given regarding bite registration techniques and fabrication of appliances ?in-house? to save in lab costs and improve treatment outcomes.
