The impact of oral dysfunction on Dentofacial development, speech and feeding
The functional aetiology of malocclusions will be explored and how these oral dysfunctions, from birth, contribute to altered craniofacial development, speech, sleep and feeding difficulties. By understanding why and how these issues arise, treatment can start earlier and provide more stable results.
3 Learning objectives
- Differentiate between normal and dysfunctional oral physiology
- Understand the implications of oral dysfunction on Dentofacial development, sleep, speech and feeding
- Learn how to identify the red flags for oromyofunctional disorders
