Neuromuscular K7 Dentist are recognizing from their own experience of both NM classical and OC’s they know and have recognized there exists another level of advancement. Many doctors have partnered with OC for the execution of the Optimized process and protocol because they know it makes a huge difference, it is sensible and it has answered forth rightly the many questions that have gone unanswered for years by experts within the NM community.
The Optimized Bite’s reason for success lies in the fact that it is based upon a mandibular and head posture that is level with the horizon (mandible is physiologically and anatomically oriented – occlusal plane angled not flat as in classic HIP (hamular notch-incisive papilla) referencing concepts. The mandible is “optimized” in 6 dimensions with specific understanding and protocols taught in OC’s Level 1-7 curriculum. The optimizing approach does not force the mandible anterior neither does it protruded the mandible to some un-physiologic or unesthetic position. It is not a randomly chosen or position that is some where anterior to the classic NM trajectory. It is a precise, accurate and measured position that is scientifically quantifiable.
When upper complex (upper head) is level, and the Optimized Bite provides that idealized relationship with the lower jaw, the positive effects of unleashing the body’s potential translates from the atlas and downward the spinal column, unleashing the whole cervical complex. Anything less than that Optimum position may lend to a temporary gain, but not for long. This process improves the “frequency” vibration of all the cells to function and allows improved recovery and neuromuscular responses.
“Regardless of the stance and or head position that each and every activity demands the body to perform, the Optimized Bite as we have been advocating will allow the body to deliver the necessary functions for optimal balance, flexibility and strength with the quality of resting states required for optimal performance.” – Clayton Chan, D.D.S.
