The Dental Connection is a book that bridges the gap between the ancient traditions of natural healing and modern dental technology. This is the story of one dentist's odyssey from conventional dentistry to becoming a holistic, biological, and physiologic-oriented dentist. It is also a historical and scientific exploration of the evolution of holistic thinking in healthcare as it pertains to the mouth. Today, the concepts of biological medicine and dentistry reflect our understanding of the causes of chronic disease and the options available to promote healing and disease reversal. The focus is on the patient rather than on the disease. Examination and diagnosis are based on understanding the changes in a patient's physiology; energetically, biochemically, structurally, and psychologically. In this book, we focus on the principles of biological dentistry as well as our philosophy of structural integration of the mouth and the body that we call Dental Somatic Integration. "If I needed to remove either the medical or dental component of my clinic, I would keep the dental because chronic problems will not resolve without biological dental care." Dr. Thomas Rau, Director of Paracelsus Clinic, Switzerland

This book on the local and systemic manifestations and correlates of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs) encompasses the two intertwined facets of translational science – translational research and translational effectiveness – as they relate specifically to TMDs. The first part of the book, on recent translational research, focuses on topics such as the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the trigeminal nerve and trigeminal network system, the manifestations of neuroinflammation in TMDs, and the molecular mechanisms underlying TMDs. The second part discusses the clinical effectiveness of treatment approaches from the perspective of evidence-based dentistry, with careful attention to the critical relationships between dental malocclusions, the signs and symptoms of TMDs, and airway/breathing disorders. Interventions to correct for malocclusal conditions that lead to TMDs are examined, with explanation of the ways in which they can ameliorate a variety of local and systemic symptoms. This will be an excellent reference book for established practitioners, residents, interns, and students as well as a powerful cutting-edge document for researchers in the field.
