Sleep and Breathing Disorders in Children: As a Dentist, I can give health to my young patients!​​​​​​​

About the Webinar

Up to 2 units of CE Credit
In this lecture, Dr. Ramirez will cover the basic sciences of breathing and sleep, as well as the consequences of mouth breathing for the patient’s general health. As it is known today, sleep and breathing disorders may be associated to deviations in the craniofacial growth and development. Therefore, Dr. Ramirez will cover in this lecture how those associations may occur, as well as how through myofunctional orthodontics he may treat those structural and functional problems associated with the sleep and breathing disorders, so providing a better general health to his patients.​​​​​​​
