Course Description: This unique mini-residency is designed for attendees to confidently treat children and adults using myofunctional/expansion appliances and clear aligner therapy to achieve airway health. Dentists are in the unique position to spearhead collaborative care to address the root causes of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). By treating SDB via growth development of the jaws, they can impact children’s neurological, cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral development thus combating common medical symptoms such as; ADHD, enuresis, and cognitive impairment. This course will also demonstrate how implementing expansion therapies can help adult patients suffering from SDB.
