Understanding the Problem
The importance of learning MRC's philosophy
We are currently facing a global healthcare crisis
A new challenge has been emerging for medical and dental practitioners since before the turn of the century. Research shows that up to 90% of children will develop malocclusion and the majority of them will also develop an airway disorder. While millions of people suffer from TMJ disorders, it is estimated that well over one billion people worldwide are suffering from airway disorders, with the majority going undiagnosed. Meanwhile, the healthcare system is doing very little to prevent this far-reaching and growing epidemic.
The airway is the missing link
When nasal breathing, the muscles of your mouth are able to rest in the correct position, which then leads to good growth and development. Breathing through the mouth, however, changes the position of your facial muscles and this has been proven to lead to an array of dental issues, including poor facial growth, crowding of the teeth and TMJ disorders. Mouth breathing is also recognised by the medical community as a subset of Sleep Related Breathing Disorders (SRBD) which have a significant negative impact on health.
MRC simplifies the treatment
Most treatments temporarily manage the symptoms of these problems and have risks, limitations and side effects. MRC's treatment systems present a better way of treating the underlying airway and muscular causes of these problems by rehabilitating the patient in a simple and non-invasive way. Aside from the dental benefits, a correctly functioning airway carries with it a myriad of other health benefits as well.
Join the movement
The current prevalence of sufferers and the increasing demand for better alternatives means that there is no shortage of people requiring treatment. Practitioners are constantly looking for new ways to broaden their skill set so they are able to help more patients. In very little time, MRC's online education teaches you to use our systems and differentiate yourself from other practitioners by providing the type of treatment that more and more patients are seeking.
