My son is 14 and has been asking for some time for braces. I have researched and tried a variety of ways for his teeth to realign naturally but without success. So, he is getting braces on tomorrow (which is his request.) This is my last attempt to find some alternative way to help his body to reach full potential in reforming his proper structure. Any one have ANY ideas, heard of any thing, read anything, tried anything successful? Thank you for any direction or information you can give!

I found a devise about 2 years ago - it was called Home-something. It's a type of retainer that one is fitted for, but can easily be tightened at home as the teeth move; so no repeat ortho visits ever needed. Just get fitted and the approved doctor sends away for it to be made and shipped directly to you. It's been around for many years.... I'll try to find the information on it again and post back.

In the mean time I found these others that are not as spiffy, but same general idea -

Twin blocks http://www.groupdental.co.uk/cosmetic/twin-blocks.asp
Myobrace http://www.myobrace.com/
Homeoblock http://puresmiles.co.uk/treatment/homeoblock/
Spring retainer http://www.1800dentist.com/spring-retainers/

Teeth are pushed by many things, even our tongues as we sleep so using a properly designed retainer just moves them back, slowly over time without a lot of pain.

Okay after reading reviews I believe the one I was thinking of is called Bioblock.

Some information can be found here http://www.orthotropics-na.org/public/department36.cfm

I hope this helps ~

....ahhhkkk....I'm finding myself in these "health" forums more and more. LOL If I stay for too long everyone is going to begin seeing me as a broken record.....LOL

Yes, I've heard of stories of teeth straightening/regenerating/regrowing.....but, teeth are "essentially" exposed bones....so I've heard just as many stories of people regrowing their broken/improperly healed, skeletal structure's back to their proper healthy condition.

I could spend far too long presenting the information as to the, why's and how's.....though, I don't wanna. LOL so here ya go.....youtube robertmorsend ....maybe, The Great Lymphatic System, would be a good place to start.

I realize that I am a little late to this conversation, but depending upon the problem you are trying to correct, you may be able to get by developing corrective habits. I went to school with a girl whose family couldn't afford to fix her protruding overbite (think bad buck teeth). Her family was told by a kind dentist to have her play the flute, as the constant pressure of her lips pulled across her mouth would make her teeth move back in her mouth--but only if she really practiced. She has a lovely smile, and as an extra benefit, she paid for college with her band scholarships.

I listened to RobertMorsend. He has a very particular type of presentation. Some people will find it edifying. Some might find it entertaining. Others might find it offensive.

He mixes his spiritual beliefs in with his practices and beliefs about the body. I don't have a problem with him doing that, but to recommend it on a question about straightening teeth doesn't seem to respond very precisely to the question. I might listen to him again, but it won't be to learn about straightening teeth. It might be to try to understand his overall philosophy, which seems interesting, but not targeted to straightening teeth.

Thanks,

....Dr. Morse....he is very much into his own spiritual beliefs.. but the message towards healing of the human body is clear and to the point. And it's always the same message. Which a neophyte to these studies, may question....but a veteran would see that and say....ahhhhhhhh. <---relief LOL

One thing I've learned, it's quite difficult to be politically correct to everyones beliefs, so we just gotta be open to others, and receptive to their beliefs, if we desire to acquire their knowledge/experience. Empty cups are easiest to fill. and when I first watched some youtube videos of him....I wasn't open to listening to him....there are many people/teachers I admire now, that I didn't when I first learned of them......the teacher appears when the student is ready, and I just wasn't ready.....until I was.

Maybe I should of put a little detail out there....but....for those with ears to hear. They will find this and do the research and find their way along this path....for others.....they will find a different path. This is the one I found, as I was looking for, "IMO", the best nourishment for the human body that would bring radiant health and healing down to the cellular level. I stumbled over this path a few times before I finally gave in and said...."well, I just don't know, so I'm going to find out." And there are plenty of other paths out there that bring health to people.....but to heal down to the cellular level, to bring the body into alignment and grow to it's DNA blueprint, to bring real health and healing into the body......this is the path I found, and so it's the one I know and desire to share.

Directly to the topic...straightening teeth....I don't know if dr morse has any videos where he specifically speaks of teeth straightening....maybe, if you search his channel you'll likely find something about teeth. But once one understands the concepts and understands how teeth would straighten when given the proper conditions......it all makes sense. The body can be either healthy or unhealthy....and the fuel's one chooses to use for the body has a direct effect upon it. Every cell, "aside from 8 (this is new to me...the 8 original cells...still learning about this one)" in the body is replaced every 2-7 years.....we are constantly growing new bodies. <----something to understand deeply and become cognizant of, IMO.

Just some stuff to dwell upon.

This is kind of late now for two reasons. He already would have the braces by and and also because of his age.
When I was a kid (eight) the dentist removed about a dozen teeth. It was a combination of adult and baby teeth.
The teeth were then allowed to spread out on their own. My teeth aren't beauty model perfect but are good. I've always
been thankful to not have 4 rows of teeth.

I haven't listened to Mr Robert, but judging from Joshua Parke's response I can't help but think of the permaculture mindset of focusing on the root problem and not dealing with a symptom. So what is the problem here? I'm not sure

Do you mean what causes teeth to be miss alined in the first place?


Well the Weston A. Price Foundation attributes this to diet changing our facial bone structure over time, and inline with that some tweaked passed down genetics.

As I mentioned, on top of diet we can and do move our teeth (think thumb sucking). Due to this people who would have had perfect teeth normally can still be faced with this problem.


So when facing a mouth of metal for her son, Beth wanted more options, very understandable.

I have an adult fiend who must wear a retainer every night to help stop his teeth grinding and his tongue from pressing his teeth out of alinement. Would changing his diet be helpful, probably over time, but would it solve his current mouth problems as quickly as the retainer, probably not. Would robert's meditation help calm his nerves that exacerbate his mouth problems, again probably. But does any of this apply to Beth's son.... situation.

I believe she was hoping for something she could do right now, that would have a fast impact instead of typical braces. Maybe a combination of internal and external treatments would be the best course. Hopefully Beth will jump back in and give us her thoughts on this discussion.

Hi Sean,
That is a pretty pointed response from someone who didn't listen to the videos. Maybe you should listen to the videos before weighing in heavily on one side of a contentious issue.

As Jami said, the problem is that it doesn't answer the OP's question. It might be philosophically interesting in a mostly unrelated way, but that's not what it sounds like she was looking for. It also doesn't answer the root of the problem. It just deals with potentially interesting but unrelated spiritual and health issues.

This is what I was responding to. And really, I should of taken a moment to make a proper response the first time to give a little more detail....LOL. ahh well. IMO, I gave information towards precisely this...."to help his body reach full potential in reforming his proper structure". These are just my strong opinions through research and experience. The human has a species appropriate food.....if that is strayed from.....just take a look around. Study Pottengers cats to understand more deeply what happens when one strays from their species appropriate food. In fact, if you study this and understand it, you'll know why the human body grows crooked teeth in the first place. Understand what leukocytosis is, and that it happens when one consumes cooked foods. "and also again, refer to the Pottengers cats study to understand what cooked food does to the body that's consuming it" Learn that the human body has an optimum ph range, and certain foods, put/keep the body in balance, health, and in it's perfect harmony.....while other foods make it acidic...and hence, inflammed, arthritic, crippled, broken, deformed, diseased,....ya get the picture. Learn that every cell in the human body has a preferred fuel source.

Ya see, in fact, from my perspective, I feel that the response I gave was directly answering the OP's question most closely. LOL ....."to help his body to reach full potential in reforming his proper structure"....

I actually like those videos, but they aren't about straightening teeth. They're about how to explore spiritual questions, and how to make man in harmony with the universe, which I actually think is interesting, it's just not about the topic, which is, "what is a natural way to straighten teeth?" Pottenger's cats are way closer to answering the question, even though they aren't even remotely close to answering the question, either.

It was never my intent to straighten my teeth, or smooth an 8" scar from infancy that goes down the center of my head, but it has happened over the past 20 months or so along with a host of other (positive) physical changes. Some might say it was a natural process and it might be worth sharing here, but your opinion is fine as well.

All the praying in the world would not have made big teeth fit into a small jaw. Thank heavens my parents realized that.

Braces are an amazing technology, but options exist.. The practice of gluing metal onto children's teeth and contorting them with rubber bands could possibly add to some of the tension in the faces of adults later in life.. I've read for most people the majority of tension is stored in the face, this was my experience.. Whatever helps us is fine and should be encouraged on a forum like this so long as we remain open to other people's experiences. Prayer is great, the empty cup that Joshua spoke of is a childlike prayer in my humble opinion

I know this will not give any immediate results. What I would recommend is that your child eat 1 carrot before each meal. It is great for correcting the jaw as well as developing the underdeveloped jaw. It being in its raw state will be the most effective.
I've grabbed this information from foods that heal by dr Bernard Jensen.(Great book about nutrition)
