A Paradigm Shift in Diagnosis and Treatment of Craniofacial Orthopedic/Orthodontic Deficiencies
Maxillary growth deficiencies represent a significant component of orthodontic problems, Myofunctional Disorders, Temporomandibular Disorders and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
In most cases, optimal effective treatment of these various conditions is virtually impossible due to fundamental Maxillary deficiency combined with resulting dental malocclusions of all categories. Historically, treatments applied have been based upon a rudimentary understanding of craniofacial growth and development, resistance to the role of craniofacial myology and historical clinical precedent, often with astonishingly poor results and increased clinical challenges.
Dr. Simmons’ presentation will provide a new perspective of craniofacial growth and development based upon Homo sapien anthropomorphic research and data not provided in medical or dental education programs.
Incorporation of this data within the design and application of an innovative clinical application of a functional dental orthopedic appliance which, in combination with Myofunctional therapy, directed to the lip, tongue and airway, will be demonstrated to stimulate normal three dimensional development of the Maxilla and Mandible. When the Maxilla and Mandible are developed to their optimal genomic form the results clearly demonstrate improvement in facial form, dental occlusion, craniofacial architecture, airway and muscle function.
Attendees will acquire a basic understanding of the most current concepts in craniofacial growth and development as well as an introduction to the clinical application and therapeutic outcomes possible with appropriate application of the OsseoRestoration Appliance.
