  3. Offer patients and other providers treatment during suspension of regular care
  4. Cite current research supporting use of temporary mandibular advancement devices

Abstract:

 

Delays between identification of people with sleep disordered breathing and getting them into therapy prolongs risk of medical complications. By providing immediate therapy, dentists can help their patients improve sleep quality and address the medical diagnosis in a timely manner. Successful treatment methods frequently must be suspended for valid reasons.  Professional level temporary devices provide the clinician options to address individual patient concerns, enabling continuity of appropriate medical care. People who use mandibular advancement devices undergo an accommodation period that is unique to each patient. Using immediate therapy helps mitigate early negative symptoms, decreases cost of providing therapy to the office, and enhances the delivery of vital medical services.
