Course details below:

PART 1 Breathing Physiology & Breathing Practical

Aim:

Learn how to maximise your breathing potential, understand the oral and systemic benefits of healthy breathing, and prevent COVID-19 infection through breathing effectively.

Outcomes:

  • 1. Discuss the physiological differences between nasal breathing and mouth breathing.
  • 2. List the signs and symptoms of mouth breathing.
  • 3. Demonstrate healthy breathing.
  • 4. Explain how healthy breathing can prevent a COVID-19 infection.
  • 5. Explain the connection between mouth breathing and airway.
  • 6. Explain a simple oral diagnostic test for mouth breathing.

 

 

Synopsis:

Very few people in the western world can put up their hands and say they breathe through their nose 24-hours per day.

  • Do you snore?
  • Do have asthma?
  • Do you suffer from rhinitis?
  • Do you suffer from daytime sleepiness?

 

If you answered yes to any of the above, then you are definitely a mouth breather. There are many other signs and symptoms and breathing pitfalls which I will cover during the presentation. In Part 1 my main aim is to ensure that you are breathing to your full potential to prevent COVID-19 infection.

 

 

During this global pandemic, the way that we breathe has now become a matter of life and death. I would wish for you all to be able to pass on this valuable information to your family, friends, and patients.

In addition to giving you all of the science, I  will explain how you can create a baseline measurement of your breathing health and then explain how you can create your own bespoke breathing exercise plan to set you on your way to maximise your breathing potential.

 

 

I would like to keep the particpant numbers of these presentations low, to ensure everyone has the ability to be involved and ask questions.

Part 2 Breathing Review and Introduction to Oral Myology

Aim:

To gain a greater understanding of the general health, oral health, and facial developmental benefits of nose versus mouth breathing in children and adults.

 

 

Outcomes:

  • 1. Recognize oral and facial changes associated with mouth breathing.
  • 2. Describe the link between mouth breathing, sleep disorders, and ADHD.
  • 3. Make the connection between mouth breathing, sleep, and human growth hormone.
  • 4. Explain the connection between jaw development and airway in children and adults.
  • 5. Discuss the causes of mouth breathing.
  • 6. Explain simple steps to ensure healthy facial and airway development.

 

 

Synopsis:

All healthy babies have the potential to become very healthy adults but somewhere along the way, people can switch from healthy to unhealthy breathing.

Healthcare practitioners rarely connect the dots between breathing and facial and airway development. You will learn how to connect those dots. Our jaw is 90% developed by the age of 12 so it is crucial to recognise any breathing-related disorders as early as possible.

In part 2 we will review the health of our breathing and then examine what may cause people to switch how they breathe and how this may affect facial and airway development. We will then discuss what signs and symptoms to look out for and then look at simple changes that can be made to convert people back to healthy breathing.

We will also consider who and when to refer for 'specialist' referrals if that is required.

 

By the end of these two courses you will have knowledge that will benefit yourself, your families, friends, and patients.

Coming Soon - January 2021

Pure, White and Deadly - 28 Day No-Added Sugar Challenge.

In conjunction with the BSDHT, Tim has been undertaking research with dental hygienists and dental therapists who have attempted the 28-day no-added-sugar challenge. The aim is to see what these clinicians discover.

The research paper has been written and was sent on 1st November 2020 for consideration to be published in the Annual Clinical Journal of Dental Health.

The plan is for Tim to begin a series of virtual and live presentations based on the new behaviour change and dietary knowledge developed from this research.

Stay tuned here for more information.

Live Audience 1 Hour to 1 Day

Breathe Better to Live Better

Aim:

To gain a greater understanding of the general health and oral health benefits of nose versus mouth breathing in children and adults.

Objectives:

  • 1. Understand physiological differences between nasal breathing and mouth breathing.
  • 2. List the signs and symptoms of mouth breathing.
  • 3. Recognize oral and facial changes associated with mouth breathing.
  • 4. Describe the link between mouth breathing and ADHD.
  • 5. Make the connection between mouth breathing, sleep, and human growth hormone.
  • 6. Understand the connection between mouth breathing and airway.

Synopsis:

Humans are designed to be nose breathers, but somewhere along the way, nose breathing can change to mouth breathing and reduced oxygen absorption. Adequate oxygen levels lead to regenerative sleep and the release of human growth hormone. Mouth breathing leads to lower oxygen absorption levels, poor sleep, and misdiagnosis of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Normal nasal breathing involves the tongue being up, teeth apart, and lips together. In children, the tongue up during rest and swallowing provides the necessary stimulus for adequate palatal development. The tongue position associated with mouth breathing leads to compromised jaw development and a restricted airway.  Mouth breathing is a predictor of sleep apnea, long face syndrome, and other developmental and sleep-related problems.

Optional Inclusions:

Practical Buteyko Breathing Exercises

Simple Myonfunctional Therapy Exercises

This programme can be adapted from 1 hour to a day depending on the audience and requirements. This course relates to my book co-written with Trisha O'Hehir and available here: LipZip

Live Audience 1 to 2 Hours

"Pure, white and deadly"

Aim:

To gain a greater understanding of the different sugar groups & their microbiological effects in biofilm, inflammation and on oral & systemic health.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the differences between the various sugar groups.
  • Discuss the microbiological effects of the various sugar groups in biofilm and the inflammatory process
  • Discuss the oral & systemic effects of the various sugar groups.
  • Understand which, when & how to recommend the appropriate sugar ployol to their patients.
  • Understand how sugar ployols can be used to prevent and treat disease.

Synopsis:

The power of the sugar industry is not to be taken lightly. Every year global sugar consumption increases more than the population and every year more and more people become unhealthier and many die as a result. Approximately 85% of the products sold in a supermarket contain sugar and the majority of people in the Western World are now addicted to this white powder.

In this presentation I will tell the story of how this all started and how we got to this point in time. I will unravel the complexities of the different sugar groups and additionally I will explain how some sugars can be used to make us healthier and finally go on to disuss how to positively help change the behaviour of our friends, families and patients.

POWDER TECHNOLOGY AND CLINICAL APPLICATIONS IN MODERN PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

 

 

 

Aim:

The aim of this presentation is to provide an evidenced based overview of how different powders are developed, the intended applications and how they should be used.

Objectives:

  • Identify different powders.
  • Discuss where, when and which powders should be used.
  • Understand how to use the powders.

Synopsis

Powders are now being utilised more by clinicians in a variety of different situations and applications. Many of the dental schools have been slow to include what is now mainstream practice on their curricula.

There is a big difference in all powders and understanding the what, where and how is key to to achieving the required outcomes with a minimum of stress to the patient and clinician.
