In this hands-on workshop, gain a step-by-step checklist for evaluating every dental patient for sleep disordered breathing. Explore the relationships between airway/breathing problems, the significance of nasal vs. mouth breathing, the relationship to dental malocclusions, facial growth and development, childhood symptoms of “ADHD” caused by poor breathing and sleep deprivation, sleep disordered breathing related TMD, and early onset dementia due to reduced brain oxygen at night. Examine treatment protocols for oral appliance management and orthodontic resolution.
Dr. Wilkerson’s in-depth clinical expertise on disordered airway function covers a full interdisciplinary breadth of the field. Don’t miss this important opportunity to learn the state of the science for dentistry leading the way into the future of recognition and intervention of sleep disorders.
