The Evolution of Facially Generated Treatment Planning: Airway Aware and Airway Directed
Jeffrey S. Rouse, DDS
Integrating airway is completely different than sleep. Sleep dentistry can be quantified by the number of advancement appliances you fabricate. Airway is not so easily measured. It infiltrates many different parts of your practice. This lecture shows the different ways that your practice can become involved from screening to complex interdisciplinary care. The new concept of airway aware and airway directed treatment planning will be explained with case examples.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Understand the ‘Why’ in malocclusion and the advantages and disadvantages of treatment strategies.
- Develop airway positive treatment strategies.
- Employ idealizing maxillary dimension before restoration for esthetics, function, and health.
