Participants will learn about how the tongue should look, move, and function, and how a dysfunctional swallow pattern affects craniofacial development and can be involved with TMJ disorders. Tongue restrictions will be discussed, and the proper sequencing of events for therapy. The goal is to give immediate screening tools for dentists to implement in their offices and discuss the multidisciplinary approach to the correction of craniofacial growth issues. Early intervention orthodontic cases and TMJ cases will be shown to support learning to screen and diagnose.
- Understand craniofacial anatomy that affects the tongue and how it functions.
- Learn early interventional orthodontic interventions that could improve arch form and improve tongue posture to help the airway.
This course is designed for dentists and hygienists.
