About this Event
Welcome to the MyoFocus Philosophy!
Are you practising Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) without Breathing Training (BT)?…. Or are you practising Breathing Training without OMT?
If so, this webinar may be of great importance to you and your clients. Changing breathing habits can be very difficult without the combination of both, particularly when lip incompetency is present.
During this eye-opening 90 minute webinar, you’ll get to learn how and why Myofocus are fusing OMT with BT.
Specifically you will gain insight into the importance of early intervention orthodontics and its relevance to airway development, paediatric sleep disorders and the general health of all children.
You’ll also gain useful insights into the management of paediatric sleep disorders and malocclusion using these principles.
The Myofocus System fuses a number of different appliances and techniques, which are combined with a cutting edge (OMT) system called ‘Myofocus Take Off Algorithms’. Myofcous seminars on these subjects have sold out to audiences in 2019 and 2020 in Australia, Japan and the USA.
This webinar will not only discuss the aetiology of malocclusion and paediatric sleep disorders. An overview of the management of these using the Myofocus System will also be shared. Management will include the use of OMT and BT using Buteyko principles.
You will see which appliances are used and we will share a number of amazing case studies so that dentists, orthodontists and other healthcare professionals can see for themselves the power of these cutting edge treatments.
Appliances discussed will include:
⁃ Myofunctional appliances including Munchee and Myobrace
⁃ Nasal breathing appliances
⁃ Biobloc Orthotropics
⁃ Functional appliances
Philosophies and research discussed will include:
⁃ The importance of an inter-disciplinary approach
⁃ The importance treating as early as possible for cognitive development and psychosocial reasons
⁃ OMT is used in 100% of cases – why?
⁃ Cranial osteopathic and cranial chiropractic care is used in 100% of cases – why?
⁃ Airway and malocclusion is a systemic ‘full body’ problem and not isolated to the head, neck and teeth
