Controlled Studies in Occlusion and Sleep Breathing Disorders at LVI




The Las Vegas Institute by the very nature of the way it offers live patient courses is an excellent laboratory for the testing of many hypotheses that we have to work with.

In this contemporary world where new findings and the application of technology to explore those areas where no man has gone before cannot wait long, it is imperative that we explore such hypotheses in the most expedient and efficient manner. Over the past 2 years, LVI has embarked upon many relevant studies that inform us and further endorse ideas that have promoted such hypotheses. Dr. Sam Kherani, Clinical Director at LVI will share with the audience these studies that have been done at LVI along with the eye opening lessons learned. This session is a must for the discerning dentist who wants to have the backing of good science behind the contemporary dental practice.

  1. Participants will learn about the outcomes from these studies which will help with future positive treatment modalities for our patients.
  2. Participants will learn how a study is conducted and the parameters that have to be taken into account in order to address the efficacy and sensitivity of the subject being studied.
  3. Participants will be shown areas where the studies fall short and what future studies should be designed to gather even more meaningful information.
