The Foundation for Airway Health will offer an Airway Summit, a full day of programming at the Greater New York Dental Meeting on Saturday, November 25 at the Jacob Javits Center.
This “White Flag” event brings together leading dental educators, scientific academy representatives, allied health organizations, representatives from the military and members of the public to offer information about what the dental team must know about sleep / airway and what they can do to impact positive health change for patients. Topics include the importance of airway in dental sleep medicine, restorative dentistry, orthodontics, myofunctional therapy, TMD, physiological monitoring, public health initiatives and more.
Unrecognized, ”Hidden” airway problems are not only expressed by poor sleep, but also as chronic disease and inflammation, learning difficulties, performance issues and behavior problems. Currently only 15% of airway problems are recognized. Dentists can and must play a front-line role in diagnosis and treatment of airway dysfunction. Attendees at the Airway Summit will learn about the emerging importance of airway health and sleep in dental practice: how to improve treatment outcomes, join the fight against chronic disease, and expand professional practice in these areas.
