Advanced Myofunctional Orthodontics

Featuring: Dr. John Flutter, BDs

Myofunctional orthodontics is quickly becoming much more prevalent as we recognize the link between nasal breathing and correct tongue position to improve growth, facial development and overall better health. More children are presenting with malocclusion and sleep disordered breathing than ever before. Dentists have been trained to diagnose crooked teeth and imbalance of the jaws.

We now understand that Sleep Breathing Disorders and TMJ dysfunction are associated with the same poor cranial growth patterns that result in crooked teeth. 


At this course, attendees will learn how myofunctional appliances can be used to treat soft tissue dysfunction, as well as receive advice regarding how myofunctional orthodontics can offer their practice a profitable alternative to traditional orthodontic techniques. 

Attendees will also be presented with information regarding a wide range of Myobrace appliances as well as receive information about profitably managing a clinic solely devoted to myofunctional orthodontic treatment. MRC’s expert presenters offer doctors and their staff a practical and modern approach to diagnosing of poor myofunctional habits and treating the underlying causes of malocclusion. These courses also include case studies, task delegation and workshops explaining and demonstrating various MRC systems and appliances.
