Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, present their first Fall Symposium featuring outstanding speakers in obstructive sleep apnea, temporomandibular disorders and bruxism.
Two-thirds of the world's population exhibit disturbed sleep patterns. This results in comorbidities which include undiagnosed stroke, Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, GERD and obesity just to name a few. As dental practitioners, should we be concerned? The American Dental Association thinks so.
A general overview of these topics will be discussed by Drs. Douglas Chenin, Ward Noble and Andrew Young. Dr. Eugene Santucci, co-director of the Dugoni School of Dentistry's Dental Sleep Medicine Mini Residency, will moderate the program and will lead a panel Q&A session at the end to open up communication on this silent killer.
The Pathophysiology of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Douglas L. Chenin, DDS
In this lecture, Dr. Chenin gives a colorful introduction to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) from a 3D CBCT imaging and dental anatomy focus. The lecture covers terms, concepts, how to screen patients for OSA and how it is diagnosed. Multiple cases will be presented with photography and CBCT imaging to highlight the anatomy involved in obstructive sleep apnea. Emphasis will also be placed on how OSA correlates with TMD, bruxism and other health complications and comorbidities.

Sleep Bruxism: Myths, Misconceptions and Management Strategies
Warden Noble, DDS, MS
Knowledge of sleep bruxism has been clouded by various opinions, myths and misconceptions. Parafunctional behaviors, including sleep bruxism, 'awake' bruxism and clenching are very prevalent and have received much attention by the dental community. Interactions among saliva, erosive tooth wear, sleep apnea and gastric reflux (GERD) play a role in the causes and effects of this problem and will be the basis of this evidence-based discussion.

The Straws that Broke the Camel's Back: A TMD Case
Andrew Young, DDS, MSD
Temporomandibular disorders are multifactorial. The more factors you identify, and the better you understand those factors, the better you can help your patients. Through a case-study, you will see an example of how those factors can work together to result in TMD.
