All Things Considered

Are braces the answer?  Yes and no!  We all know people who had orthodontic treatment a few years ago and look like they need braces.  Is it failure or is the body just trying to return to balance?  Let me explain:  a bad bite or malocclusion is your body's state of balance. As I hope you will understand once you read All Things Considered™, there is a balance between the teeth, muscles, jaw joint, breathing dynamics and cervical spine.  If the orthodontist just addresses the alignment of the teeth without regard for other structural imbalances and systemic factors, a state of imbalance or disequilibrium occurs.  The body's natural tendency then is to restore equilibrium or balance even if it means that the teeth will unfortunately shift.

Dr. Dierkes has developed an “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic and TMJ care where he considers the relationship of teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway (breathing patterns), food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine imbalances that may adversely influence bone and soft tissue metabolism.

Dr. Dierkes’ own research at the University of Michigan pointed out the importance of adequate amounts of vitamin C for the best connective tissue matrix as a means of providing the most optimal long-term stability. His MRI research pointed out the relationship between a bad bite and damaged jaw joints.

He has identified a relationship between airway problems, unfavorable facial skeletal development and endocrine and/or nutritional deficiencies that have led to the development of a more holistic, drug- free and non-surgical management of patients who are “mouthbreathers.” Establishing a more normal, nasal mode of breathing during sleep will help insure a more normal development of the face and jaws.
