Early Airway, Facial Orthopedics and Pre-Aligners February 21-22, 2020 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
