Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Did you know your jaw can affect your posture? The top two vertebrae are the only two vertebrae without 3 points of contact. Their "third point of contact" is the teeth. So if your jaw is underdeveloped or misaligned it could be throwing off your entire posture. This condition is known as forward head posture (FHP) and may be caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

Posture affects more than just the way you look too. Because the cervical vertebrae rely on the teeth for support, if the teeth are not in proper alignment, the skull can begin pressing on the spine. This disruption to the intended balance of the body's design can then require other parts of the body to adapt and become strained. Over time, this progression can lead to problematic total body posture and begin affecting everything including the internal organs. Consequently, being detrimental to your overall health.

Internal Complications

The human body works as a unit. When one disruption occurs, other systems of the body try to cope. Misaligned teeth cause poor head posture which leads to the skull compressing the spine, which creates a slouch, which in turn affects all of the back and abdomen. Muscles, bones and internal organs are all impacted like dominoes. With an overall compression of your total body posture you could begin experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain

Additionally, because the underlying organs are being collapsed upon, several internal organs may experience a decrease in functioning. Nerves, arteries and veins can be affected as well. Still, some parts of life will seem so normal and be so natural to you that you may not even realize something is wrong. With proper treatment the body can become more elastic, you can notice a lower center of gravity, improved balance, and deeper respiration from improved diaphragm functioning. Balance can be reached and provide you with an all new experience to life.

What Does Treatment Look Like?

The misalignment of the jaw that sets all of these postural problems to arise can be treated using epigenetic orthodontic treatment. This treatment stimulates the jaw to grow and realign your bite to rebalance your head.

The entire body is affected by forward head posture and because of this, Dr. Buck's care plan usually includes a coordinated effort between his team and physical therapists, chiropractors, craniosacral specialists and massage therapists.

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
