What is an Airway-centered Mouth Doctor?
A Holistic Mouth is a healthy mouth, and a healthy mouth builds natural health. Above all, it has the correct structure to support the ABCDES of good health: Alignment, Breathing, Circulation, Digestion, Energy, and Sleep.
When these are disrupted, the cause can often be traced back to a structurally impaired mouth – underdeveloped jaws and a pinched airway. An AMD knows how to correct those, thus bridging the gap between medicine and dentistry.
That said, “AMD” indicates neither a degree or currently recognized dental specialty. Rather, it describes a dentist who has been trained in Dr. Felix’s Whole Health approach and has the knowledge and skill to transform an Impaired Mouth into a Holistic Mouth and source of natural health.
Why would I need an Airway-centered Mouth Doctor?
Only an AMD can help you determine if your mouth’s structure is hurting your health. Many medical conditions can be caused or affected by dental conditions. Similarly, many dental symptoms can have origins far beyond the mouth.
In some cases, an AMD can help your body heal naturally. In others, the changes they bring about can help you respond better to dental, medical, or alternative treatments.
If I have an Airway-centered Mouth Doctor, do I still need a dentist?
If Dr. Felix is an Airway-centered Mouth Doctor, is he still a dentist?
How do dentists and Airway-centered Mouth Doctors work together - or do they?
An AMD works on the mouth’s contribution to a patient’s burden of stress and inflammation, which is good basic preparation for restorative dentistry – as important as soft tissue management. An AMD’s work makes both mouth and body respond better to dental care.
On the flipside, dentists can refer to an AMD to address issues such as bite alignment, sleep breathing disorders such as apnea, perio-cardio risk, and digestion-related inflammation. The patient will still see their dentist for cleanings and any necessary restorative or prosthodontic work.
Does an Airway-centered Mouth Doctor take the place of my physician?
The AMD’s work, in turn, can make your body respond faster and more completely to the medical care you receive from others.
