‐ Apr 19, 2024 10:00am

Clear aligner therapy is a treatment that can benefit many different patients, and there are various considerations for clinicians to keep in mind, working from nose to gut. This webinar will explain how “the nose knows,” as 60% of airway issues have a nasal component. “Tiger tongue” can also be a factor, as described by Dr. Felix Liao. And you’ll also want to “GERD your loins for expansion,” because it's going to be a spicy night.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how airway issues and nasal breathing impact clear aligner therapy
  • Explain the role of the tongue on successful treatment
  • Discuss gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Bernoulli's principle, and the perceived difficulty of expansive orthodontics
