Can Orthodontics Cause OSA and Airway Related Breathing Disorders?

This webinar is about how dentists and orthodontists can prevent and reverse the detrimental effects of retraction. 
Most “modern” orthodontic techniques are still retractive in nature. They can (unintentionally) decrease the size of the airway which may have a negative impact on patient health. During this webinar Dr Hang will share orthodontic techniques that protect and, in many cases, enlarge the airway (which can eliminate snoring and OSA). 
If you are an orthodontist worried about “Straight Teeth in a Box” or a Dentist who wants to have a more positive impact on patient health (and perform more restorative work), this webinar is for you!

What you will learn:

- What is non-retractive orthodontics is and how can it have a positive impact on patient well-being?

- How airway health affects craniofacial pain and what to do about it.

- Why you can’t expand your way out of an anterior/posterior problem.

- How understanding non-retractive orthodontic techniques benefits the general/restorative dental practice.
