The Aligner System allows the clinician a simple,
uncomplicated method of mounting, analyzing and treating cases
using stable, reproducible anatomical landmarks of the skull.
The 21st century dentist can no longer function as merely a
tooth mechanic to the patient, but as the professional who understands
that the mouth is linked to other systems in the body and who
takes a systems approach to chronic problems in the the body.
These problems can manifest in headaches, neck pain, back, hip,
shoulder, knee pain, chronic fatigue, clicking and popping jaw
and other major chronic problems.
The dentist must be the doctor who takes into account the whole
body in its structure and function to best serve his patient.
The brain is constantly monitoring and attempting to keep the
body in balance. The neuro-muscular system is used to keep this
balance or at least attempt to keep this balance as the case
may be and proper alignment of the jaws is essential to achieve
neuro-muscular balances in the body.
The Aligner System is essential in aiding the
dentist to achieve good diagnosis of structured balance in the
jaw as it relates to the rest of the body. This with the aid
of other diagnostic modalities allows the best diagnosis and
treatment plan for the patient. Other important considerations
are occlusional analysis of tooth to tooth contact, cone beam
or CT Xray scan and degree of emotional stress , diet and analysis
of the cranial bones.
