I am excited to be taking courses on orofacial myofunctional disorders and myofunctional therapy at LVI the first week of February. The first course addresses issues with improper tongue posture and swallowing. The tongue plays a huge role in sleep apnea, snoring, TMJ pain, orthodontic relapses, open bite, speech, posture and swallowing to name a few. Treating orofacial myofunctional disorders are critical to the successful treatment of many dental issues. 

I hope to be able to incorporate myofunctional therapy into my treatments immediately.  It seems like I am seeing more and more open bite orthodontic cases as a result of a...

 The majority of people we see are unaware that amalgam (silver) fillings release mercury, one of the most poisonous substances we are ever exposed to.  Luckily, here in the Boulder/Denver area we find that people are generally more health and body conscious than other parts of the country.

We’re commonly told that we need at least 8 hours of sleep every night for general health and wellness. However, our sleep needs go much deeper than that. Insufficient sleep can cause numerous diseases, and even early mortality. Dr. Adler and I attended a continuing education course about sleep disorders recently, and what we learned was eye opening!

We have found that many people suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and are completely unaware of it. Obstructive sleep apnea refers to a frequent collapse of the airway during sleep, which lasts for over ten seconds. ...

Let’s talk Probiotics

 

Most of us have at least some knowledge of gut probiotics- the kind that is found in yogurt and grocery store probiotics supplements. But did you know that there are specific probiotics for your mouth? The beneficial bacterium that normally occurs in a healthy mouth is called Streptococcus Salivarius.  For some people, this bacteria is out of balance- just like what can happen in your gut.   By adding more of the good bacteria, we can shift the balance in our mouths dramatically. 

 

Introducing this bacteria into our mouths can prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even bad...
