Today’s dentist should know about the rapidly increasing population of patients that are diagnosed with sleep apnea. This condition can cause significant burdens on patients and their spouses, with both medical and emotional side effects. The dental office may be a primary place where patients at risk for sleep apnea can be identified and pointed toward diagnosis and treatment. Dentists can play an important role in the treatment of this difficult problem. The oral appliance is a frequently used and very successful technique for treating sleep apnea. Yankee plans to be the first major dental meeting to host a session involving the various laboratory providers. We would like to invite you to participate in this 2017 program.

3-D Printing in Dentistry: The Present and the (very near) Future
3-D printing is a technology that is getting ready to burst into our dental lives. This new manufacturing process has been “behind the scenes” in dentistry for quite some time, having been used by labs and dental manufacturers for several years. The most contemporary labs have used 3-D printers to make crown and bridge units as well as implant abutments and crowns. Dentists will soon have access to in-office printers that can increase the level of care and simultaneously lower cost. The availability of materials and ready access to these sophisticated units is predicted to grow exponentially in the near future. This presentation will provide you with the knowledge to understand and engage this coming technological innovation in our profession. Complimentary CE On the show floor
