Using contemporary evidence and a case-based approach, information on
micro- mini- and macro-esthetics of the smile will be presented. Additionally,
insight from a patient (consumer) perspective on dental esthetic issues will be
given, and tips to enhance discussions regarding patients’ treatment options
will be provided.

-Better diagnose dental esthetic issues related to size, proportion, and
-Manage cases involving altered gingival heights

Rouse Signature Lectures Presents:
Sleep Prosthodontics:
Not the Same Old Sleep Dentistry Course
Dr. Jeff Rouse
San Diego Jan 8-10
San Antonio April 16-18
Chicago Oct 1-3
Charlotte, NC Oct 22-24
Sleep Prosthodontics is the study of the airway and its impact on the stomatognathic system.
The impact of breathing that disturbed sleep is seem in daily dental practice: bruxism,
erosion, myalgia, and malocclusion. This differs from a traditional Sleep Dentistry course that
focuses on the oral appliance and its’ impact on the airway. Dr Rouse will introduce
participants to a new vision for dentistry and the amazing role it can play in improving the
health and sleep of our patients: Maintain then Resolve. CPAP and oral appliances to achieve
a healthier airway. Use the maintenance clues to then attempt to resolve the patients problem
and eliminate the appliance. Hands-on screening, nasal breathing and oral appliance projects
will be conducted during the three-days. Finally, a focus on fixing the 4 year-old child for a
lifetime will be highlighted.
Attendees will be able to:
1. Understand why management of the airway is key to medical and dental health
2. List dental co-morbidities elicited from poor sleep breathing and possible solutions
3. Explain the importance nasal breathing, fabricate a provisional oral appliance and
recognize the patients autonomic reactivity
4. Determine the ideal oral appliance for different patient types
