Assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of tethered tissues is an area of interest across dental and medical disciplines. Yet, there is no consensus on terminology or management. This conference will host national and international renowned providers in the areas of dentistry, orthodontics, otolaryngology, sleep medicine, lactation, and speech pathology to present current research and clinical perspectives. These experts represent diverse background and ample time will be provided for a robust discussion of how best to provide care for families.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will have gained a better understanding of tethered tissues including:
- Recognizing the different classifications of tethered tissues
- Identifying potential sequellae tethered tissues
- Describe the scientific evidence to support surgical treatment of tethered tissues
