Introduction to Myofunctional Orthodontics
Featuring: Dr. Cathy Sherry
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.
Before you can treat these conditions, you must be able to identify the problem. Evaluation is the starting point in the journey to mastering myofunctional orthodontic treatment.
In this program, you will learn:
Pediatric Health (Breathing, Sleep, Nutrition)
Patient Screening, Evaluation and Consultation
Patient Examination, Airway, Sleep, TMJ
Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
When to use Arch Expansion, BWS, Myolay
Myobrace Appliance Selection
This program will focus on MRC's 10 point evaluation protocol with focus on educating both doctors and patient educators on identifying myofunctional problems and how to effectively deliver the Myobrace program.
