Course Description:

The upper jaw carries a unique anatomic position as part of oral and nasal cavities. It plays a critical role in facial development, mastication, breathing and speech. Maxillary deficiency modern epidemics present significant restorative challenge in rehabilitation of the natural dentition as well as for implant reconstruction. In this presentation we will discuss the importance of recognizing the impact of not treating the “little maxilla” and the lifelong effects on oral and systemic health. We will review the latest innovations in diagnosis and non-surgical intervention of the hypoplastic maxilla syndrome in adult patients.
