Breastfeeding: The Most Important First Step for a Healthy Adult Dentition

 

PrehistoricSkullExamine this photo of a prehistoric skull. How beautiful is its esthetic tooth presentation, complete with a set of thirty-two disease-free teeth. I have only seen this anatomical norm once from a patient born and raised, living in the jungles of the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico until he was thirty-five. The anthropological information states, breastfeeding for two to four years is the average and physiological norm for a human suckling. This beginning of nurturing and nourishment is the most important first step in creating a healthy adult dentition. The composition of the mother’s milk also influences her child’s growth and development at the beginning of life.

Breastfeeding Can Help Your Children’s Teeth Grow Properly Giving Them a Healthy Smile as an Adult

Doesn’t every mother want teeth like this for their children? This is what Nature intends for her human family. Understand a little about anatomy and physiology and how it works, during the growth and developmental period. To build muscles, everyone knows exercise is the only realistic way to accomplish getting stronger. It takes work when a child is nursing. Muscles have an abundant blood supply and bones do not. The more stimulation a muscle experiences, the bone the muscle is connected to directly benefits. This muscle stimulation influences the potential growth of the jawbones, making plenty of room for the baby’s teeth. The infant’s tongue and sucking functions are the primary energizing movers, shaping the dental arches. After weaning, Nature’s foods continue this coordinated stimulation and work process until we are full-grown.

Dr. T.K. Stone

Dr. T. K. Stone fell in love with the dental arts as a dental laboratory technician in the US Army. Working with dentists inspired him to become one. Finishing very high in his class, he joined the faculty and later specialized at the same dental school. In private practice, he focused on TMJ disorders and complicated restorative rehabilitation cases. He was also invited to teach at another dental school. As a professor in the 1980's and 1990's, he published articles in health magazines on the mind and body connections, relating to the dental health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints (TMJ). The 1960's were a very inspiring decade for Dr. Stone as a teenager. Not only his passion for the dental arts was born, his other passion in life, mind and body health, flourished throughout these years from his ninth to nineteenth birthdays. His book, "The Fertile Ground" published in 2011, summarizes an understanding about this life. Our planet Earth, and Mother Nature, intends a healthy existence for all its creatures, free of the diseases commonly seen in today's humanity. This unhealthy lifestyle doesn't exist in our evolutionary past. Tooth decay and all the other degenerative diseases are not seen in our world's wildlife, not now or in the past. We are all related within the genetics of Nature's "Tree of Life." We all live and survive with the same natural laws, under the same sun. We humans take an unnatural direction, which has consequences. Why? Purchase "The Fertile Ground" by Dr. T.K. Stone on Amazon Today.
