Lecture
Orthodontics and Airway – What’s the Connection?
The problems of sleep-disordered breathing and its consequences are well-recognized in adults, but it has recently become apparent that a significant percentage of children including very young children can be affected by an inadequate airway. This presentation will highlight the problems contributed to by airway problems, explain how we as dentists can determine which children may be affected, and how orthodontic treatment can improve the airway of our patients.

Learning objectives:
  1. Understand the relationship between airway anatomy and function
  2. Recognize signs and symptoms of airway problems in patients
  3. Understand how orthodontic treatment can modify the airway in children and adults
