How to place the OrthoApnea DAM in your dental practice

The use of DAM has become a popular and effective option for the treatment of sleep apnea and snoring in dental clinics. These devices offer patients a comfortable and personalized alternative to more invasive therapies such as CPAP. Here are the steps you need to take to confidently offer this treatment and provide your patients with an effective solution for OSA.

1. Initial evaluation

Perform a thorough evaluation of the patient, including medical history, sleep history and symptoms related to sleep apnea. This will help determine if DAM is an appropriate option for the patient.

2. Referral and diagnosis

If you suspect that the patient may have sleep apnea, it is important to refer the patient to a specialist in Dental Sleep Medicine or a doctor specializing in sleep disorders for a definitive diagnosis. The specialist will perform additional tests, such as a sleep study, to confirm the diagnosis.

3. Taking impressions and recording in the forward position

Once the diagnosis of sleep apnea has been confirmed, he proceeds to take impressions of the patient's mouth by intraoral scan or traditional impression and a record of the position in the advancement using a george gauge.

4. Sending impressions to the laboratory

Submit the impressions to the lab along with the appropriate prescription filled out at Apneadock.com.

5. Manufacturing

The DAM will be manufactured using a CAD/CAM process and will be designed to fit comfortably and securely in the patient's mouth, allowing mandibular advancement and airway opening during sleep.

6. DAM adjustment

Once the DAM has been fabricated, schedule an appointment with the patient for fitting and delivery of the device. During this appointment, place the DAM in the patient's mouth and make the necessary adjustments to ensure proper fit, comfort and efficacy.

7. Care and follow-up

Provide the patient with detailed instructions on how to use and care for the DAM. Make sure they understand how to insert and remove it correctly, as well as how to keep it clean and in good condition. Schedule follow-up appointments to evaluate the patient's response to treatment and make additional adjustments if necessary.
