“I’ve become convinced that the placement of the teeth and jaws have a significant impact on someone’s airway.

“I’ve become convinced that the placement of the teeth and jaws have a significant impact on someone’s airway. By extension, airway health impacts pain patterns, the onset of chronic disease, and longevity. ‘Orthodontic Success in the Coming Post-Retraction World’ will present how orthodontics can affect the airway - both positively and negatively,” says William M Hang, DDS, MSD.

Airway health, or lack thereof, can play an enormous role in breathing and sleep breathing issues. Untreated Obstructive Sleep Apnea - where breathing ceases for 10 sec to over a minute – is known to put someone at risk for cancer, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke.

AIRWAY-kening University, founded by Dr. Hang, is happy to have OSA University as a sponsor for the upcoming seminar “Orthodontic Success in the Coming Post-Retraction World”. Both organizations, in parallel efforts, strive to educate on the importance of a healthy airway which is essential to a healthy and vibrant life.

This course is designed for the restorative dentist, orthodontist, interdisciplinary team and dentists who treat TMJ and/or do orthodontics. Attendees will learn to understand the intimate relationship of the teeth and TMJ pain patterns, how to effectively create space in the mouth and airway (even on a post-retraction patient), and alleviate TMJ issues to improve their long-term success case percentage in their practice, all while creating beautiful smiles!

Dr. Howie Hindin testifies, “if you are a restorative dentist or orthodontist, consider attending this Bill Hang course on creating space for the airway and optimizing aesthetics and health. Restore your patients to a better breathing position, with an improved appearance and less risk of failure. This course will change your practice, your life and the lives of your patients.”

Each doctor will receive 16 CE credits with attendance. To learn more and register for “Orthodontic Success in the Coming Post-Retraction World” please click on this link: Face Focused.

His Face Focused® treatment techniques are designed to: develop the jaws forward, never backward; work toward proper facial balance; create pleasing facial appearance; protect and/or expand the airway; and produce broad smiles that are complete to the corners of the mouth.
