New London, CT (PRWEB) December 04, 2019

Respected periodontists in New London, CT, Drs. Gregory Toback and Marianne Urbanski of Shoreline Periodontics, recently hosted the latest Synergy Study Club entitled, “Could it be an Airway Problem? The Story of Three Patients.” This event was one of six courses that the Synergy Study Club provided this year in Mystic, CT. Featuring guest speaker, Dr. Jeffery Rouse, the goal of the course was to help attendees shift their mindset in order to look at systemic conditions and consider the patient’s whole-body health.

Dr. Rouse encouraged attendees to adjust their mindsets during patient diagnosis and consider all options, including airway restriction, regarding concerns such as sleep apnea, malocclusion and systemic issues. “Sleep dentistry is the study of an oral appliance and its impact on the airway,” says Dr. Rouse. “Sleep dentistry and sleep appliances are important things for every dentist to learn about. It’s going to become part of our reality.”

This whole-body approach mirrors the way the periodontists at Shoreline Periodontics interact with patients when making diagnoses. For example, with every dental implant case performed by Drs. Toback and Urbanski, the periodontists consider occlusion. Additionally, they have found that malocclusion plays a role with those suffering with extensive periodontal disease.

Malocclusion has been found to increase gum disease, as those with a misaligned bite often experience difficulty cleaning their teeth. When teeth are misaligned, crooked or gapped, it becomes more of a challenge to keep them clean, as flossing and brushing often do not reach certain areas of the mouth in these cases. Bacteria that is not cleansed from the mouth can eventually cause gum disease, an infection of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth. As periodontists, Drs. Toback and Urbanski are trained to diagnose, treat and prevent gum disease with leading treatments at their disposal. Correcting malocclusion is one of the many steps that the doctors take to help patients prevent developing gum disease.
