  • Airway Orthodontics-An Introduction to the New Paradigm

    Instructors: Ari Forgosh Lessons: 1 Category: , Runtime: 1:02:27

    Dr. Barry Raphael discuss how many of our dental school and residency orthodoxies are now very different than what was taught. He'll turn your thinking about Sleep Dentistry around, too. Traditionally, in orthodontics we align the teeth first, set the occlusion, get the jaws to balance and match the joints, hope the muscles will follow the form, and see about the airway last (if at all). In Airway Orthodontics, we reverse our priorities. The health of the airway comes first, then we balance posture and musculature so that the jaws can grow fully and have plenty of room for the teeth to come in straight. And that's not the only way of thinking that has been turned on its head!
