The underlying pathophysiology of sleep-related breathing disorders is multifactorial and varies considerably between individuals. Personalized treatment plans may be developed when mechanisms of patient-specific respiratory events are identified and understood. This webinar will briefly review key physiologic factors while emphasizing adjunctive therapies to improve treatment outcomes.

Target Audience
Dentists treating patients with sleep-related breathing disorders.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  1. Discuss theoretical phenotypes of sleep-related breathing disorders;
  2. Describe non-anatomical factors affecting oral appliance treatment response; and
  3. Collaborate with referring physicians to provide personalized treatment plans for patients.
