Lowering Substance P through Precision Dental Orthopedics:
Lowering Substance P through Precision Dental Orthopedics is not a well known phenomenon. Nor is the process of doing Precision Dental Orthopedics. The understanding of this relationship is probably just slightly less understood than the appreciation of the importance of substance P. It is my hope that this website will correct many of these short comings so as better medical diagnosis and treatment can ensue. Many patients suffer excessively and die needlessly because the medical community is not aware of the relationship between elevated substance P and a compromised jaw relationship.
Lowering Substance P through Precision Dental Orthopedics should start with a blood test to determine the exact level of substance P. Currently, to my knowledge, only Quest Diagnostics performs this test. Their reported “normal” levels are seriously wrong. My clinical findings and multiple research articles suggest that substance P levels should be less than 100 pg/ml, and most likely less than 60 pg/ml.
Many people have a dysfunctional jaw relationship without their awareness. Dentists are taught how to check for good occlusion, not taught how to assess a jaw alignment, that includes orthodontists. Less than 2% of dentists would ever recognize a compromised jaw relationship. The treatment that orthodontists are taught to provide is to give the patient “good occlusion”, not to precisely align their jaws.
Why is Precision Dental Orthopedics necessary?
One of the primary effects of substance P on the body is to hypersensitize all sensory neurons. This leads to homeostatic instability (i.e. multiple illnesses). Included in the hypersensitivity are jaw alignment sensors. If the jaw is not aligned precisely, these sensors will not respond dramatically, thus lowing systemic substance P levels. The ability to lower substance P levels through dental orthopedics has been demonstrated in numerous medical studies (e.g. tmj/headache studies).
