Jaws are part of the whole postural chain. Pain and fatigue is inevitable with poor posture. Optimal health does not happen without a level head and balanced bite.

Misaligned bite is a sign of skull distortion. Kids with bad bites do not perform as well in school, and suffer more pain and ear-nose-throat infections (1).

Misaligned bite in adults can distort C1/C2, where the head joins the neck, to cause pain anywhere in the postural chain (1, 2).

Weak chin, flat lips, facial pain come from misaligned jaws. Crowded teeth come from undersized jaws and mouth breathing (3).

Misaligned bite and jaws perpetuate pain, postural imbalance, and these symptoms:

  • Head-neck-face pain, fatigue, depression
  • Uneven eyes and ears, stuffy nose or ears
  • Mouth breathing, sore throat, chapped lips
  • Clicking jaw joints, can’t open wide, jaw pain
  • Teeth grinding, sensitivity, and breakage
  • Snoring, sleep apnea, hypo-thyroid, and MORE

Full physical and spiritual health is associated with fully developed and balanced facial skeleton, wide jaws, and straight teeth (4).

The Law of Form & Function says poor health may be rooted in bite misalignment and jaw underdevelopment (5). Examples include:

  • teeth grinding
  • snoring
  • sleep apnea

Dr. A.C. Fonders, author of The Dental Physician, has written a landmark summary called Dental Distress Syndrome Quantified. Click here to read the entire summary.
