The Important Role of Orthodontics in Management of TMH and Airway Issues image

The Important Role of Orthodontics in Management of TMJ and Airway Issues

Friday, March 11th, 2022 – 11AM-6:30PM ET

Recent advancements in technology and research have allowed dentists to understand the role underlying conditions, including temporomandibular joint and airway disorders, play in the development of malocclusion. Armed with this knowledge, dentists have a unique opportunity to not only determine the root cause(s) of the malocclusions we see in our practices, but to also contribute to the design of interdisciplinary treatment plans directed at benefiting TMJ and airway health and stability. Through case presentations and overview of current research, this lecture will provide a complete picture on how to use CBCT and MRI technologies to identify, diagnose, and categorize patients prior to treatment. There will also be heavy focus on how to sequence treatment based on TMJ and airway condition, and design patient-specific therapy to maintain the health of the TMJ and airway for the long-haul.

The ABC’s of MSE’s and TAD’s a pediatric airway training event

The ABC’s of MSE’s and TAD’s

Saturday, March 19th, 2022- 7:30AM-6PM ET

In managing children and adults with airway conditions, orthodontics plays a central role in managing the form that allows for proper function. Two of the more advanced techniques employed today are MSE’s and TAD’s. These adjuncts have the capability of assisting to change the form of the nasomaxillary complex while still falling within the realm of being minimally-invasive, especially in comparison to the alternative, which is maxillomandibular advancement surgery. This course is appropriate for dentists who have a solid background in orthodontics or for those who would like to understand it so as to be able to work better with their specialists in planning these cases. With hands-on MSE on model and live patient demo with Dr. Ilya Lipkin!

Form Follows Function

Tuesday, March 29th, 2022 – 8:30PM ET

A lack of mastication and freedom in movement are trapping bites in kids. Combined with deficiencies, allergies, and breathing disorders, this limits the proper vectors of growth in the face. When thinking in Biofunctional dynamic occlusion, we start by stabilizing the mandible position through different techniques, such as direct tracks of Planas, to be able to create freedom in the mandible. This verticalization pattern in combination with the freedom of movement creates a better osteogenesis. By applying friction plates, we can stimulate facial growth based on angulations of pathway directions. This lecture will cover different techniques that can be employed in Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion where the arch of closure creates the biodynamics for proper muscle balance and joint stabilization.

Can You Help Emma Event Image a pediatric airway training

Can You Help Emma? w/ ASAP Pathway

Have you ever had a child come into your office with so many warning signs for sleep or airway issues? Year after year, these symptoms only get worse but you have no idea how to help this pediatric patient.

Join us with our interactive pediatric airway training lecture “Can you help Emma”. Learn how to change your pediatric patients’ lives forever.

Pediatric Dental Sleep Medicine - Pediatric Dentistry Training

Pediatric Dental Sleep Medicine w/ Dr. Michelle Weddle

Part of recognizing airway issues in our pediatric patient population is understanding where their airway issues may fall on the sleep disordered breathing spectrum. In this master class, we will review the physiology and pathophysiology of pediatric sleep breathing disorders and how this affects your management of the patient as well as the dialogue with the parents and other healthcare providers in your airway team.

Objectives:

  • Go over pathophysiology of airway and sleep disordered breathing in kids.
  • Understand AHI and how it affects the diagnosis of OSA.
  • Understand how the “objective” data that we rely on actually have some subjectivity
  • How to prepare the parent for the results so that your credibility as a dentist and healthcare provider in the airway team is not compromised when the physician says “there’s no OSA, your child is fine.”
  • Ways in which to use the results in your decision-making and treatment management process
Treating Children Under 10 with sleep apnea

Treating children Under 10 with obstructive sleep disordered breathing w/ Dr. Tracey Nguyen

  • Participants will recognize the most common medical conditions with comorbidities with children suffering from obstructive sleep disordered breathing
  • Discuss the goals of dental airway management and how to develop an interdisciplinary teeth
  • Review of the current treatment options for children under 10
Role of Dentist in Pediatric Airway - Pediatric Dentistry Training

The Role of the Dentist in Pediatric Airway w/ Dr. Stacy Ochoa

By the end of this pediatric airway training lecture, you will understand:

  • How to identify children struggling with airway and craniofacial growth/development issues
  • How to identify the co-morbidities of airway issues in children
  • The non-anatomical and nutritional deficiencies that are sabotaging sleep in both children and adults today

You will have access to FREE screening/data collection and blood screening tools at the end of the lecture.

Grab your coffee….pull up a chair….and let’s talk about helping these kids!
