Course - Dental Sleep Medicine

Dental sleep medicine has increased its importance in the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders in recent years. On the one hand, the study situation on the mandibular protrusion splint has improved again; on the other hand, dental sleep medicine has also found its way into the relevant treatment guidelines (S3 guideline “Non-restful sleep”). In this way, an interesting field of activity opens up for dentists in close cooperation with sleep medicine specialists, ENT doctors, pulmonologists and many more.

Our advanced training event is aimed at newcomers to sleep medicine as well as advanced users who want to update their knowledge. Since the professional adaptation of intraoral devices for the therapy of obstructive sleep apnea requires specially trained dentists who are able to select the most suitable device from the abundance of protrusion splints on offer, the focus of our course is of course on practical aspects of mandibular protrusion splint therapy.

After completing the course, you will be able to identify patients with suspected sleep-related breathing disorders in your practice, to diagnose them correctly together with sleep specialists and then to provide competent therapeutic care in the next step. You will be able to evaluate all available therapies in accordance with the guidelines and ultimately, of course, learn about the possible uses, side effects and limitations of the protrusion splints in order to adapt them as best as possible.


The content of the course consists of 2 sections:

1st theory part

The basics of sleep medicine and the diagnosis of sleep-related breathing disorders in particular are discussed. You will receive the tools you need for everyday work in order to be able to work at eye level with sleep medicine specialists from other disciplines.

2nd workshop part

During the second part of the course, practical workshops loosen up the lectures and seminars. These workshops prepare you optimally for everyday practice and the adjustments.
