Airway Prosthodontics - Prevent, Control, Resolve (Aug 12 - 14, 2021)

Scottsdale, Arizona
Airway Prosthodontics - Prevent, Control, Resolve is organized by Spear Education and will be held from Aug 12 - 14, 2021 at Spear Education, Scottsdale, Arizona, United States of America. CME Accreditation: 22.50 CE Credits Workshop Overview: Before the Facially Generated Treatment Planning process can begin, foundational problems must be uncovered and resolved: periodontal disease, caries, and muscle/joint health. The list of keystone issues now includes airway. This course is designed to help you discover patients in your practice – from pediatric to elderly – with varying degrees of airway compromise based on dental signs and symptoms and learn to control many of their complaints without using medical sleep appliances. This course culminates in developing interdisciplinary resolution strategies for complex cases that blend seamlessly with FGTP in an attempt to resolve the compromised airway while producing exceptional dentistry. What you will learn at this workshop:  • How to conduct a comprehensive airway examination on adults and children within the confines of their traditional assessment.  • Why the top 10 dental problems found in a restorative practice could be the signs and symptoms of airway restriction.  • How to utilize the power of screening tools to demonstrate the problem, insure resolution, and promote health-based dental solutions in a restorative dental practice.  • How to differentiate between hypersensitive and diseased airways and their unique treatment approaches.  • How to recognize ideal craniofacial growth and development and epigenetic alterations from the norm.  • How to recognize the impact of mouth breathing on occlusion, inflammation, and chronic stress and learn the value of myofunctional therapy in resolving airway mechanics.  • When and how to refer to the medical community and ENT surgical strategies beyond tonsils and adenoids.  • The Seattle Protocol: a staff-directed, systematic approach of customizing a plan to control a patients' airway through appliance and nasal breathing therapy.  • How to treatment plan airway resolution as an integral part of a functionally generated dental treatment plan. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
