By which mechanism does the Montorsi Method ACOM work?
The surprising thing is that such a powerful
activator has been neglected for so long. Perhaps the most appropriate
explanation could be the lack of adequate "branding" by the original creators.
On the other hand, one cannot expect that a researcher should describe in
advance how and what he is supposed to discover, which would indeed limit the
capacity of those who "see" what others can not.
Many years ago I personally deduced that behind this method there was enormous
potential not yet studied, but especially not even "imagined".
I started to use this type of activator initially almost as an observer of the
astonishing effects, then began to study it in depth, principally to try to
understand how it works, something incredibly never explained in full.
We are now aware that the extraordinary orthopaedic cranial-occlusal effect is
given by the visco-elasticity of the material it is composed of and the
repositioning of the mandible (lower jaw) associated with action on the maxilla
(upper jaw) are due to a "harmonious effect of return" on the cranial sutures
with an action of thrust on the "carriers" of the teeth (which are also growth
carriers “accretion vectors”) that converge on the apophysis of the Crista-galli
starting point of the intracranial membranes of reciprocal tension.
The concept is: there is a bijective correspondence between cranial osteopathy
and dental occlusion. The reason that often (more than 60% of cases) orthodontia
using metal and/or rigid devices causes a "content" imbalance that predisposes
to a disequilibrium that the body tends to manifest in another direction and the
spine, the cervical vertebrae which are the continuation of the bones of the
skull, is the specific organ to facilitate the compensation that may evolve in
The following images explain the concept of the thrust action on tooth-vectors:
In light of the above one can also understand
the action mechanism of bruxism: when there are occlusal problems and the
reciprocal tension membranes are in abnormal tension a defence mechanism is
established that aims to discharge these tensions through the teeth and the
consequent wear on the teeth tends to cause an increasingly worsening loop.
This mechanism also explains why patients with dysfunction tend to break
orthodontic appliances and continuously detach orthodontic " braces /brackets"
as forces applied by the orthodontist on single teeth contrast with the
equilibrium of the intrinsic tooth mapping on this centre of forces and the
reason for orthodontic relapse is as more marked in respect of the final
position dictated by the orthodontic treatment is as far from the correct
balance of forces.
In my practice and observations in I have found that the most frequent symptoms
associated with orthodontic therapy which are systematically ignored by the
orthodontist are nightmares, or complete lack of dreams, excessive or
uncomfortable psychic phenomena with hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating,
decreased creativity, eye and ear problems and that these symptoms are the same
that in Chinese energetic medicine correspond to the 6th chakra (3rd eye) that
produces the control of consciousness and that this chakra is located right at
the Crista-galli and these symptoms, when present, are the first to be
eliminated in the transition from mechanical orthodontics to the Montorsi
Unfortunately, paediatricians, general practitioners, orthopaedists, dentists
and orthodontists continue to ignore the "medical evidence" hiding behind
scientific concepts ever more difficult to defend.
