TMJ 'dysfunction' - Health implications

This forum provides information relating to the role that a 'dysfunctional' jaw, dental arch anomalies and other consequential body asymmetries play in causing illness from a completely different perspective. It is meant to be your ONE stop to find out how to go about getting proper relief.

Many patients suffer from chronic sore throats and chest infections. Antibiotics are too easily dispensed to the detriment of future antibiotic use.
Sore throats start off as viral infections but within hours they are mainly bacterial.

Leaving the discussion about viruses out presently, throat infections occur when the normal good bacteria get invaded by nasty bacteria. This is perpetuated by:

• The use of toothpaste which has antiseptics in them; (We have never found any alternative tooth pastes which can be used)
• The use of mouthwashes again to the detriment of maintaining good commensal oral bacterial flora;

• A poor breathing capacity because of a poor jaw position. This may have been brought about by:

    • Poor jaw development;
    • Extraction orthodontics;
    • Extraction of wisdom teeth;
    • Sleeping in stuffy unventilated bedrooms.
If your child wakes up with bad breath you can rest assured that it is being caused by the toothpaste being used before bedtime. Please read my article on salt in this respect.

Patients suffering from chronic sore throats often resort to using lozenges which again have antiseptics in them and do the opposite of what is really required. The chronic sore throat continues unabated.
Oxygen is the biggest killer of bacteria and if your breathing capacity is poor you will tend to pick up more infections in spite of correcting all the parameters mentioned earlier.

When a chest infection starts it usually starts with a light cough. It may happen early in the morning at 4.00 AM. The correct treatment is to immediately get up and gargle with hot saltwater. If your child has the problem you must get the child up to do the same. Usually, this stops the throat infection in its tracks. If after a few minutes you start coughing again you must repeat the saltwater gargling procedure until you have no coughing bouts.

This would prevent a cough from becoming a major chest infection needing antibiotic use. It would enable you to go to work in the morning and your child to school.

One of the worst inventions propagating sore throats are antiseptic mouthwashes, followed closely by a number of toothpastes. These disturb the natural bacterial harmony in the mouth and allow nasty organisms to increase causing serious damage to the gums and giving you putrid foul bad breath. So avoid these at all costs.

The first damage they cause is by killing all the good and allowing resistant faecal organisms to flourish which not only give you a foul breath but also cause serious gum disease.

The damage caused by secondary bacteria can effect not only the throat but also the parotid gland canal and the nasopharyngeal tube.

The third nail in the coffin is from the ingredients which cause cancer.

If you have a slimy sticky mouth, it is due to the very dangerous organisms which proliferate to cause even more gum disease apart from many other untoward effects.

The main dangerous organisms which take hold are Staphylococcus Aureus and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. These form a dominant biofilm infection (slime) which PREVENTS ANY HEALING OF THE THROAT.

If you wake up with bad breath than you know you suffer from such an infection.

One can only imagine how lethal secondary viral or bacterial infection under these circumstances can become if one gets infected with Covid-19 because this biofilm prevents healing of the mucosa leaving it open to viral attacks.

Please read my articles on oral hygiene and the use of saltwater on this forum.

If you suffer from a serious chest infection like pneumonia, serious viral infections or pleurisy you obviously need hospital care. Here again please phone the hospital or your GP instead of just turning up there potentially exposing others to transmissible viruses.

Further notes:
Antiseptic mouthwash may reduce the benefits of exercise:
Results of one study show that the blood-pressure-lowering effects of exercise were diminished by more than 60% over the first hour of recovery, and completely absent two hours post-exercise in those who used antibacterial mouthwash.
Please read more here Mouthwash use could inhibit benefits of exercise

Toothpaste and hand wash may contribute to antibiotic resistance:
A common ingredient in toothpaste and hand wash could be contributing to antibiotic resistance, according to University of Queensland research.

A study led by Dr Jianhua Guo from UQ’s Advanced Water Management Centre focused on triclosan, a compound used in more than 2000 personal care products.

PS: We try and give you the most suitable information even if some in authority, are not comfortable with it. This information is a radical departure from conventional thought and if followed will give both dentists and patients, all around the world, the best way forward. This needs many hours of work and for me to continue to be able to change lives throughout the world and to keep my staff employed and my offices viable, we request a little help in the form of a donation.

Please donate using the link on the window that comes up at (Please note I am in the process of revising that website.) Please remember there are at least 50 illnesses where millions of patients can be helped through dental interventions.

The improvement or benefits identified in the testimonials and articles on this site are based on individual experiences which are dependent upon the patient’s unique health condition, jaw condition, occlusal position, medical history, and other individualised factors, and should not be considered representative of all treatment outcomes.
