The technique, appropriate for young children, has been shown to significantly improve facial balance and increase the patientâ€™s airway. A study of 50+ consecutive OrthotropicsÂ® patients treated by Dr. Hang showed on average an increase in airway size of 31% at the area behind the soft palate, 23% behind the base of the tongue, and even 9% at the level of the hyoid bone. This study was published in the refereed journal â€śCranioâ€ť.rnrnDr. Hang has been practicing OrthotropicsÂ® since 1990. He has even used the technique to help children have a better facial profile as well as even eliminating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring in children. This weekendâ€™s session will conclude the 13th year Dr. Hang has been giving OrthotropicÂ® Mini-Residencies for dentists and orthodontists from the US, Canada, Aruba, Ireland, Korea, Bahrain, Australia, and New Zealand.
