Postural Orthodontics – Dr Simon Wong

Dr Simon Wong has put together an excellent programme which he calls ” Straight Teeth Naturally”. He has studied extensively and has been mentored by Professor John Mew, Dr William Hang on Orthotropics, by Dr Chris Farrell & Dr John Flutter on Myobrace and Dr Steve Olmos on TMD/Sleep Therapy along with the ALF and Cranial Osteopathy.

DEFICIENCY DYSMORPHOGENESIS SYNDROME (DDS)A personal view by Dr. Paul Greenacre, DDS, DOMP

This is an excerpt from the excellent article by Dr Paul Greenacre – Dentist/ Manual Osteopath

“The first obvious indicator-area of Mankind’s Dysmorphogenesis or skeletal breakdown is the shape or width of the palatal arch – Maxillary Dysmorphogenesis (MD) – that starts forming at about 8½ weeks in utero. No one in clinical medicine is measuring the size or shape of the palatal arch at birth or beyond. This is a major medical oversight as it is vital diagnostic information. It is a key biological marker measurement that is being overlooked by all practitioners worldwide.
Under-developed palates mean that 60% of the children today will need orthodontics. Small palates have serious jaw, cranial, airway and spinal consequences.”

Premaxillary-Maxillary Suture

This research paper was carried out by the University of São Paulo in 2016.

file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/DPJO%2016-29%20NovDec%202018%20(4).pdf

Premaxilla: Up to which age it remains separated from the maxilla by a suture, how often it occurs in children and adults, and possible clinical and therapeutic implications. Study of 1,138 human skulls.

To quote –

Conclusions

This study suggests that:

1.The progression rate of premaxillary-maxillary suture closure from birth to 12 years of age is 3.72% per year.

2. All pediatric skulls up to 12 years of age had an open premaxillary-maxillary suture.

3. Adults may have an open premaxillary-maxillary suture.

4. The percentage of adults with an open premaillary-maxillary suture was 6.16%.

5.The prescence of a premaxillary-maxillary suture explains the success of anteroposterior expansion of the maxillary complex.

6. The existence of a premaxillary-maxillary suture supports the use of treatments for the growth of the middle third of the face to solve anatomical and functional problems.

Prevent Crooked Teeth Campaign

For decades crooked teeth have been accepted as just bad luck – a genetic inevitability that often requires extractions and fixed braces. This is seen almost as a rite of passage for teenagers. However, there is increasing awareness that such treatment can exacerbate obstructive sleep apnoea and TMJ disorders, leaving people with a lifetime of health problems.

www.preventcrookedteeth.com

The petition has 16,826 signatures to date, 13 June 2021.

This is a global petition so anyone can sign.

I do hope that many of you reading this will want to get involved.

Breath – The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor

James Nestor’s amazing new book is about how breathing properly can transform your physical and mental health. At a time when there is increased awareness of the role of the airway, this is a most timely publication.

We take 25,000 breaths a day, and many people mouth breathe which is really bad for optimal health.

This is the link to James’ interview with reknowned Dr Rangan Chatterjee.
