CE Lectures on the Dental Treatment of Snoring and Sleep Apnea Include Rochester, Cleveland and Ft. Lauderdale, as Sleep Seminar Destinations

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2013

With over 80 Million  people undiagnosed with OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea), it's assumed more physicians would increase OSA screenings and treatment options for symptomatic patients.  Interestingly enough, dentists are among the small group of practitioners stepping up, to take on the sleepy killer, OSA.   Dental sleep medicine expert, Dr. Michael Hnat lectures for Sleep Group Solutions, and instructs other dentists how to implement a proper sleep protocol, structured around evidence-based knowledge. Dr. Michael Hnat’s upcoming Dental Sleep Medicine lectures include Rochester (8/23-24), Cleveland (9/6-7), Irvine (9/20-21), Ft. Lauderdale (10/25-26) and Chicago (12/13-14).

Dentists from around the world are attending dental continuing education courses focusing on the dental treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Dental sleep medicine education company, Sleep Group Solutions has instructed thousands of dentists on implementing a proper sleep protocol. Dr. Michael Hnat, a dentist in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, screens and treats patients for sleep apnea in his general dentist practice, Progressive Dental Solutions.  “Research  indicates that ninety-percent of individuals with the disease (OSA) are still undiagnosed.  Dentists-qualified in sleep medicine can custom fabricate a simple device worn over the teeth that keeps the tongue from blocking the airway allowing for adequate  breathing and oxygen levels while asleep.” says Dr. Hnat, whose dental practice was among the first in the country to be granted full accreditation by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Common symptoms and signs of OSA include; Acid reflux, irritability, morning headaches, high blood pressure, hypertension, scalloped tongue, and daytime fatigue. “In sleep apnea chronic, low oxygen levels in the blood stress brain and heart function.” explains Dr. Michael Hnat. By stabilizing the airway, oxygen is able to pass through without an obstruction, or blockage. Oral appliances, such as The Respire Blue Series, hold the mandible in place, and keep the tongue from creating further obstructions. Dr. Hnat hosted a free webinar this week on the topic, to offer dental professionals a sneak peak of what to expect during his upcoming seminar. The webinar is available to the dental industry, here.

To increase existing knowledge of dental sleep medicine, or to learn it for the first time, attending a dental continuing education course with Sleep Group Solutions is a great starting place. For dental professionals interested in learning live with Dr. Michael Hnat, please register for his upcoming course in Rochester, NY on August 23-24.
