Home Sleep Studies Used in Dentistry

August 22nd, 2017

For over the last 15 years, our office has supplied support services for our patients who have been diagnosed with sleep breathing disorders (often Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA). Whether the referral for a sleep study came from signs and symptoms noted in a dental examination, or if was requested by a patient's physician, the method to collect the data necessary to make a diagnosis required a hospital-based overnight sleep study (Sleep Labs). This is medically referred to as a Polysomnography or PSG.

The 'Sleep Medicine' industry has begun to move away from the use of hospital-based Sleep Labs and towards tests that a patient can take in the comfort of their own home. Not only is there huge cost saving for the medical insurance companies but many patients greatly prefer an evaluation that can occur in their home rather than in a hospital room disguised as a hotel room.

This fall we will focus on Home Sleep Tests (HST) and how dentistry is incorporating this into the everyday screening of patients visiting for a routine tooth cleaning and examination.
