Episode 4 of the Sleep and Dentistry webinar series.​

This webinar aims to inform clinicians of the evolving role of facial skeletal surgery for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Participants will learn about the risks and benefits of contemporary orthognathic surgery and how it can offer a cure for selected OSA patients. They will be able to use this knowledge to inform patients about the appropriate treatment options.

Webinar aims:

  • Outline the facial skeletal procedures relevant to the treatment of OSA
  • Describe the current evidence base supporting these treatments
  • Understand the current multidisciplinary treatment pathways for the surgical management of OSA

The importance of sleep quality for our physical and mental health is now well established. This is an important webinar to understand surgical treatment options for OSA which are still poorly understood and underestimated. 

A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
