One of the most critical components of dentistry is the AIRWAY. SESSION SIX consists of reviewing the anatomy and physiology of the human airway, and how we, as dentists, can intervene at different times in patients’ lives to improve their access to the one drug they cannot live without: oxygen! Arch development, orthodontic treatment and oral sleep appliance therapies are covered in depth. Laser treatment for snoring (Nightlase) is taught, and participants practice on each other. One of the highlights of this course is making (and drinking!) fresh apple cider at my home on Friday night.
