Early Airway, Facial Orthopedics and Pre-Aligners: Strategies and Approaches Featuring Dr. Duane Grummons

This lecture focuses on the importance of dentofacial orthopedics during early childhood well before permanent teeth have erupted. This session examines treatments that help correct/manage breathing and sleep disorders, mouthbreathing, habitual snoring, teeth grinding and other related conditions. The significant improvement in the child’s facial appearance will also improve the smile and self-confidence, which are so important during the developmental years. Secondary treatment needs are then moderated, and superior outcomes are achieved with patient benefits for a lifetime.

In this course, you will learn:
• Airway co-management issues; earlier screening with therapies
• Sleep disorders with medical co-management and allied therapies
• Behavioral, structural, functional and wellness therapies
• Benefits of 3D cone beam diagnostic and treatment applications
• Earlier treatment…the right treatment at the right time
• Transverse jaw and 3-dimensional arch discrepancies
• Facial asymmetries…essentials from the front
• Smile esthetics regarding occlusal plane, midlines, and chin location
• Mid-facial class III treatments…slow RPE + facemask therapy
