it not said that malocclusion is always secondary to a cranial problem that
creates positioning asymmetries of dental arches and that correct intervention,
as early as possible, can easily and definitively solve the problem?
Why is it when a paediatrician sends a young patient to the dentist or
orthodontist in most cases they say it is too early for treatment and they must
wait for the eruption of permanent teeth?
This was the case, for example, of little Alexander C. who had been advised not
to intervene until adulthood and then undergo maxillofacial surgery. . .
His mother learned of the Montorsi Method and brought me the child for
treatment. After just four months he already had changes which the pictures on
the right testify.
Is it also essential to know that before 12-13 years of age the base of the
skull is not yet ossified and before age 13-14 the Fine Tonic Postural System
has not yet completed the organization of its receptor systems, therefore the
application of rigid or semi-rigid structures in the mouth of the young patients
must be avoided.
should tooth extraction for orthodontic purposes be avoided as these tend to
aggravate the elongation of the skull and face, flattened cheekbones, deep
palate, prominent nose and the collapse of the already contracted arches.
Orthodontic treatments with extractions force the jaw to contract resulting in
ogival dental arches – pointed arches like those of a rabbit - with
consequent deterioration of the profile and reduced space for the tongue.
Orthodontic braces have the prerogative to utilize pre-shaped arches that create
standard form and artificial arches (like the next three cases) and when
associated with extra-oral traction generate forces that do not harmonize with
either the skull or the jaw joints [mandibolar articulation], nor with muscle
equilibrium, or with the Tonic Postural System.
Orthodontia that does not take into account all the problems described above, by
mechanically straightening the teeth, subtracts compensation of the mouth by
transferring the tension and torsion onto the spine and subsequently triggering
compensatory scoliotic curves and bascule/cradled shoulders and pelvis
with onset of an apparent short limb which unfortunately is often corrected by
orthopaedics with harmful mechanical plantar and with even more damaging
A study of scoliosis carried out on patients by Dr. Demauroy in 2000 showed that
a large number of them (at least 60%) start right after the fitting of
Is there an occlusal therapy alternative to orthodontics which is
biologically compatible with the above?
