Airway, Inflammation and TMD – The Critical Connection (Member Discount Eligible)

October 29, 2020 - October 30, 2020

Dentistry’s recent interest in Sleep Apnea has evolved into an important new understanding of the significant links between airway and breathing disorders, TMD and malocclusions and systemic inflammation, creating new opportunities for dental teams to address the patient’s complete health. By developing an integrative dental medicine approach, dentists will have the ability to expand services, play a positive role in our current health care crisis and collaborate with the larger medical community.

Today, dental professionals can play a key role in identifying and addressing several factors of accelerated aging and chronic health conditions that affect total health. This lecture course will address the common links between bruxism, dental wear and malocclusion, headaches, dysfunctional breathing, sleep apnea, inflammation, gastric reflux, ADHD and TMD that are rarely recognized in the medical community.

A revolutionary paradigm shift has begun in dentistry that will forever change the profession. Amidst a struggling health care environment, dental teams are learning skills to significantly impact the total health of their patients and community. Integrative Dental Medicine (IDM) is the next great frontier in Dentistry. The IDM Models has 3 major areas of focus: Inflammation/Infection – Oral pathogens’ Systemic Affects, Pro-inflammatory Diet, Gastric Reflux, Stress, Toxins, Physical Inactivity. Airway/Breathing Disorders – Sleep Apnea, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), Allergies, Nasal vs Mouth Breathing. TMD/Occlusion Disorders – Bruxism, Abfractions, Breathing Related Malocclusions, Tongue Thrusts, Sore Muscles, Headaches, Joint Derangements.
