Description

The purpose of this course is to help general dentists to learn to identify simple malocclusions that can be treated with functional appliances to improve the appearance and health of our younger patients. Mothers want their children treated when the malocclusion appears. They do not want to wait until age 13, when all the permanent teeth erupt and the malocclusion is more serious. It has been estimated that approximately 70% of children by age 12 have some form of malocclusion. Since 90% of the face is developed by age 12, it is critical to institute treatment early in order to guide the growth of our younger patients. General dentists were not adequately trained in dental school to either diagnose or treat these malocclusions. The use of functional appliances at an early age to develop the arches transversely and sagitally can help to ensure a non-extraction and non-surgical solution to the problem. Mothers do not want their children to have needless extractions and will seek out practitioners who can offer this valuable service. Utilizing functional appliances can eliminate the need for orthognathic surgery and routinely results in the creation of a healthy temporomandibular joint. It is critical to the health of our younger patients that general dentists diagnose and treat airway obstructions due to swollen adenoids or tonsils early. Children with these problems have difficulty sleeping, are hyperactive, do poorly in school and sports, and are frequently prescribed the drug Ritalin. With assistance from E.N.T. specialists and functional appliances, these airway problems can be corrected. The objective of early treatment is to not only make the patient look better in terms of properly developed arches and straight teeth, but also to make the patient healthier by eliminating any airway obstruction.
