​​​A hot topic in Dentistry today is Airways. 

An Airway course taught by Dr DeWitt Wilkerson is invaluable!

About the course:
 Today, dental professionals can play a key role in identifying and addressing several factors of accelerated aging and chronic health conditions that affect total health. This lecture course will address the common links between bruxism, dental wear and malocclusion, headaches, dysfunctional breathing, sleep apnea, inflammation, gastric reflux, ADHD and TMD that are rarely recognized in the medical community.

 
A revolutionary paradigm shift has begun in dentistry that will forever change the profession. Amidst a struggling health care environment, dental teams are learning skills to significantly impact the total health of their patients and community. Integrative Dental Medicine (IDM) is the next great frontier in Dentistry. The IDM Models has 3 major areas of focus: Inflammation/Infection – Oral pathogens’ Systemic Affects, Pro-inflammatory Diet, Gastric Reflux, Stress, Toxins, Physical Inactivity. Airway/Breathing Disorders – Sleep Apnea, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), Allergies, Nasal vs Mouth Breathing. TMD/Occlusion Disorders – Bruxism, Abfractions, Breathing Related Malocclusions, Tongue Thrusts, Sore Muscles, Headaches, Joint Derangements..
