This course will examine how early issues like mouth breathing, tongue ties, and improper swallowing habits can adversely affect the way our jaws grow. We will look at patterns such as crossbites, open bites, underbites, and overbites, and gain a deeper understanding of their etiology as well as treatment strategies. We will discuss comprehensive and interdisciplinary treatment strategies for children and adults with various skeletal issues.
At the completion of this presentation, you will be able to:
- Understand the role the soft tissue plays on skeletal growth and development
- Learn to identify various skeletal patterns and how the can link back to airway issues
- Learn treatment strategies for children and adults including interdisciplinary sequencing
