Thus, the presence of clear airways will allow a correct respiration and oxygenation of all the cells of the organism, fundamental for the integral health of the individual.
It is evident that in recent years this is a subject of great relevance in dentistry.
Currently, it is not only possible to assess respiratory dysfunction that affects health systemically, but also to understand the relationship between respiratory dysfunction and malocclusion; lingual interposition; clenching and bruxism; abrasion and tooth erosion; gastroesophageal reflux; temporomandibular disorders; headaches and cervical pain. All this includes many of the most common problems addressed on a day-to-day basis by dental professionals,
Therefore, this course is focused on helping dentistry professionals identify risk factors and use a practical protocol for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
