The diagnosis and practical application of MFS stimulators in the treatment of growing patients with motor disorders of the oral cavity.

Prof. Dr. José Durán von Arx

On-line Course synopsis

Based on extensive knowledge of the mechanisms governing the growth and development of the facial skeleton, supported by many years of clinical research at the University of Barcelona we offer to show you:

    • A protocol for the diagnostic procedure of the motor functions of the oral cavity based on the coding of the functions of: breathing, tongue mobility, swallowing and others.
    • Management strategies to help you achieve positive results in treating patients in the period of growth and development, during fixed appliance therapy, as a palliative treatment.
    • The practical application of MFS stimulators in the treatment of growing patients with motor disorders of the oral cavity area showed that we can change the direction of craniofacial growth by influencing specific muscle groups through stimulation.
      Oral motor disorders in a cascade manner change the distribution of muscle tone, disturbing the motor activity of other parts of the body.  
    • According to the life motto of the creator of MFS stimulators, prof. Duran "Think more, work less", we will share our knowledge and experience with you, showing you how to deal with new problems or the ones you might have came across.

According to prof. Robert Rickets (Bioprogressive theory), 
prof. Jean Delaire creator of the Delaire mask, 
prof. Melwin Moss (Matrix theory of Growth), 
prof. John Mew (Orthotrophy), 
prof. Jose Duran von Arx (Multifunctional Oral Function Philosophy - MFS Philosophy) 

We will not achieve permanent results after orthodontic treatment, without restoring muscle balance as the primary function of nasal breathing.

With his scientific achievements, prof. Duran meets these assumptions, showing a new perspective on this common problem, showing new opportunities not only for orthodontists, but also for pediatric, ENT specialists and neurologists.

What will the participants learn:

  • ➕ the basic mechanisms governing the growth and development of the facial skeleton,

  • ➕ functional diagnosis,

  • practical application of MFS stimulators in patients with respiratory and swallowing pathways disorders and incorrect distributions of muscle tone,

  • ➕ how to use stimulators to improve the functioning of the lips and tongue,

  • ➕ how dolichocephalic or brachycephalic type of craniofacial growth can be influenced by using MFS stimulators and changing the distribution of muscle tension,

  • ➕ how dolichocephalic or brachycephalic type of craniofacial growth can be influenced by using MFS stimulators and changing the distribution of muscle tension,

  • ➕ see how we use Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Treatment post op of lingual frenulum.

  • ➕ And finally they will be able to see cases

After this lecture:

  • ☑️ you will learn about the mechanisms that govern the growth and development of the face. This information will be provided in a practical form.
  • ☑️ You will learn the order, from the point of view of the craniofacial growth in relation to the individual spatial planes, it should be treated- first overbite or overjet?
  • ☑️ You will gain the latest knowledge about the frenulum of the tongue, published in 2019, 2020, presenting us with new challenges.

After this lecture:

  • ☑️ you will know what is the hierarchical order to successfully re-educate the motor functions of the oral cavity. Using the example of the presented cases, you will learn about the stimulation that has negative effects on the bite and craniofacial growth.
  • ☑️ You will learn that due to the fact that the tongue and the mouth have a large sensory representation in the area of the cerebral cortex, we can use stimulators to stimulate the appropriate neuromotor points of the oral cavity. We call it positive stimulation because it gives us measurable morphological benefits.
  • ☑️ you will learn these principles and be able to implement them in your practice.

After this lecture:

  • ☑️ you will be able to make decision - apply key treatment strategies to prevent negative impact of functional disorders on craniofacial growth
  • ☑️ you will know how you can control growth pattern by early functional treatment.
