The insanity of mainstream orthodontics: severe facial pain created by conventional orthodontic treatment

Second Visit


First Visit

Conventional and most functional orthodontic treatment being provided the public approach the patient from purely a mechanical prospective. The universities in their orthodontic programs teach purely a mechanical technique to move and straighten the teeth. Unfortunately the universities are unaware of the concept that the teeth are attached to the skull and that there is a micro-motion to the skull bones, which can distort from orthodontic forces applied to the teeth. Moving teeth directly impacts on the alignment of the 28 bones of the skull. Typical symptoms arising from conventional orthodontic treatment include: headaches, facial pain, pressure within the head, ringing in the ears, disequilibrium/balance problems, neck and low back pain, Trigeminal neuralgia and more.

Francis Kang was one of those unlucky patients who underwent conventional orthodontics which created structural and neurological side effects. After completion of the “straightening” of his teeth, Francis was left with severe facial pain and pressure in his forehead. Consultations with orthodontists brought no resolution to his problems. Several referrals from orthodontists in Seoul, Korea and Francis finding my web site convinced him to seek out my services. Francis flew down from Montreal, Canada for an evaluation and treatment of chief complaints. Examination determined that Francis’ skull was compressed and twisted as a result of his orthodontic treatment.

A comprehensive cranial adjustment was provided at the initial visit. Immediately Francis experienced a 90% reduction in his forehead pressure, facial pain, and restricted neck motion. In a follow-up visit, upper and lower ALF appliances were inserted. These unique lightwire appliances are specifically designed to unravel the compression and twisting of the human skull. Immediately after placement of the ALF appliances and adjustment to lessen the skull distortions, Francis had immediate improvement of his facial pain, head pressure, left eye tracking and restricted cervical range of motion.

Most patients and 99.99% of dentists do not make the connection between orthodontic treatment and the chief complaints patients present. The problem is that the orthodontic profession does not have a baseline evaluation of where the patient’s skull bones are 3-dimensionally before , during and after treatment. In reality it is a crap shoot what happens to the patient’s skull alignment when undergoing orthodontic procedures. This case is another example of fake medicine and dentistry.
