As dentists begin to recognize the impact of dysfunctional breathing, managing the problem will become an important component of comprehensive restorative dental care. The interdisciplinary airway resolution strategies typically lend themselves to dental reconstructions. Dr. Rouse has developed a protocol for evaluating the relative health of the autonomic nervous system of the patient with fully reversible procedures. The patients reaction to the therapy will help determine the next level of referral to resolve the airway limitation.
- Understand that breathing disorders are much more than apnea
- Develop a strategy to screen patients in a restorative practice
- Create an autonomic nervous system trial to direct the practitioner in developing an interdisciplinary health and dental plan
