Provide yourself with a more natural medicine aimed at finding equilibrium and wellbeing.
Equilibrium and harmony are the objectives of the Equilibriodonzia, which takes the legacy of the tradition of functionalism and integrates it with the most recent scientific acquisitions.
Its journey was born from the knowledge that malocclusions are always linked to a change in the functions of the oral cavity, and this in turn has profound repercussions on general health and posture. In fact, the development of the mouth is determined by its functions, which are organised starting from:
- the thirteenth week of intrauterine life, with the start of swallowing;
- birth, with respiration and suction;
- the appearance of milk teeth, with chewing.
The recognition of a link between altered vital functions and the appearance of organic illnesses can even be traced back to Hippocrates and it has been a continued subject of study up to today. Ten years of experience has permitted the observation of a systematic relationship between an unbalanced mouth (and therefore a functional anomaly) and diverse illnesses, amongst which:
- painful areas in the spine and joints
- dyslexia, attention deficit and hyperactivity
- ear, nose and throat (ENT) illnesses
- Snoring and apnoeas
- Problematic allergies
- Balance problems
The oral cavity is also fundamentally shown for the plasticity of the nervous system: the salivary glands produce diverse factors of nerve growth and the discovery of neurogenesis in the adult brain suggests that the possibility of neuroplasticity is greater than initially thought. From a therapeutic point of view, the Equilibriodonzia takes advantage of non-invasive functional mobile systems, the MEA Balancer, which represents the most up-to-date evolution of Soulet-Besombes’ activators.
In contrast to similar products on the market:
- they are available in four different non-toxic, hypoallergenic materials, of different hardness;
- they withstand modifications that are introduced in order to provide new stimulation ;
- they are indispensible for therapeutic success.
Treatment with the Balancers determines the efficient re-education of the vital functions of the oral cavity, through which harmonisation of the mouth is obtained, with profound positive consequences on the systemic health of the whole body.
The Dentosophie takes its name from the Latin ‘dens’, tooth, and from the Greek ‘sophia’, wisdom, it is a therapy which, as defined by its creator, Michel Montaud is: “characterised by a humanistic approach to the art of dentistry, based on known functional techniques, which demonstrate the link between the equilibrium of the mouth, the equilibrium of the human being and, more extensively, that of the entire world”.
The Dentosophie is therefore an interdisciplinary approach to mouth problems which, through the physical re-equilibrium of the mouth, leads you to the path of general improvement.
The mouth performs a central role in the equilibrium and health of the entire organism and, due to exactly this, the therapy differentiates itself from conventional dental therapies: each therapeutic act is executed with recognition of the connections which exist between the oral cavity and the patient, in their integrality of body and mind. By ‘mind’ we intend our psychological equilibrium which is in some way reflected in the oral cavity by the position, illnesses or traumas that the teeth undergo.
The Dentosophie divides the mouth into the right half, which corresponds to the male, materiality; and the left half, which corresponds to the female, spirituality. Each tooth is given an archetypal context. The upper right incisor is the archetypal male, whereas that on the left is the female; the side right is the archetypal father, the left the mother. The upper right canine expresses strength, courage, that on the left love and attachment to your people…and so on for all the teeth.
The wisdom of the teeth therefore indicates how teeth can be considered a mirror of our inner being, and their position in the mouth as the result of a series of events that have happened in our lives on the different constitutive levels of the human being: physical, functional, psychic, sentimental and emotional. This global approach permits us to use the mouth and malocclusion as an entrance into the organism. The improvement of these functions: swallowing, breathing and chewing, activates a change in the mouth and alignment of the teeth. This process of change, of rehabilitation of the functions, assumes fundamental importance in children during their growth phase as the harmonisation which follows is demonstrated in the cranial-facial growth which follows. The therapy which is applied was based on the use of natural rubber activators (no longer used today due to the recognised cytotoxicity of the natural rubber) and the principles and techniques of Neuro-Occlusal Rehabilitation (N.O.R.) of Prof. Pedro Planas. Today, the Dentosophie, together with the use of new biocompatible balancers, allows us to obtain optimum results reporting equilibrium even in the most disharmonic mouths.
