An Introduction to Myofunctional Therapy, Dentistry and Airway Health

October 4, 2019
Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

University of Washington School of Dentistry and Washington Dental Hygienists' Association present:

An Introduction to Myofunctional Therapy, Dentistry and Airway Health

 

Friday, October 4th, 2019 8:30AM-4:30PM

 

Course Description and Learning Objectives:
This is a one-day course designed to give dental professionals an overview of the field of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and its connection to dentistry and airway health.

Topics covered will include:
     • Symptom identification of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs)
     • The importance of the multidisciplinary team in treating OMDs
     • An in-depth look at the health consequences of mouth breathing and poor oral posture
     • How OMDs affect craniofacial and dental development in children
     • The role of Ankyloglossia in dentistry and overall health
     • How OMDs and sleep disordered breathing intersect
     • The influence of OMDs on temporomandibular joint health and function
     • Orthodontic and periodontal health and stability and OMDs

 

By the end of this course, participants will have a broader understanding of the connection between Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and dentistry. They will also understand the role of the hygienist in myofunctional assessment and referral, along with the importance of airway health and functional breathing for children and adults. Myofunctional therapy can be an effective adjunct to dentistry in two ways. First, to guide craniofacial growth and development in children in order to prevent bigger dental and health problems as adults. Second, as part of the process for treating sleep disordered breathing, malocclusion, and TMD in adults in order to address the root cause of their conditions

Understanding the New AAP Classifications of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions CE

October 11, 2019
Time: 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Many of the services hygienists provide depend on an accurate dental hygiene diagnosis.  And now the World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions has been released (June 2018) the details of which are comprehensive and all-encompassing.  Clinicians are left with trying to determine how to incorporate this assessment into their daily practice.

 

Look no further!  This course will provide a simple approach and WORKSHEET which can be used to determine each patient’s disease status using these new classifications.  Case studies (photos, radiographs and periodontal chartings) will be reviewed so that participants can have a “hands-on” approach to using the worksheet. 

 

Once a diagnosis is determined, then which of the six “cleaning” procedure codes is best suited for each patient?  And what is the definition for each of these “cleaning” procedure codes?  And is it different from last year?  And how are ‘insurance’ carriers reimbursing these “cleaning” procedure codes? Or are they?  So many questions!

 

Come hear the latest responses to these questions as we navigate this often-confusing part of treatment planning for patients with periodontal conditions.
