Oral dysfunction as a cause of malocclusion Linda D’Onofrio 10 May 2019

An exceptionally well written article which was published in the journal of Orthodontics & Cranial Research.

“This narrative review surveys current research demonstrating how oral dysfunction can escalate into malocclusion, acquired craniofacial disorder and contribute to generational dysfunction, disorder and disease.”

This is such an important aspect but which is sadly completely overlooked in the current establishment approach to the treatment of malocclusion.

12th Annual Presentation to the Osteopathic Centre for Children, London.

The Osteopathic Centre for Children is now amalgamated with the new Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy.

“The Effect of Jaw Problems on the Rest of the Body” was the title of my presentation. This time by Zoom!

12 participants tuned in from various regions of the country. The aim of the lecture was to inroduce the concept of an integrated approach to treatment involving dentists/orthodontists, ENT specialists and Myofunctional therapists. Ostepaths and Chiropractors also have their part to play , especially in early diagnosis and treating cranial strains.

Their is now a heightened awareness of the need to establish a good airway and nasal breathing in the early years in order to achieve optimal oxygenation for health and wellbeing.
