“I’ve had tension in my neck and shoulders my whole life. I didn’t realize the impact that had on me until it went away with my dental orthotic.”

– actual patient of Dr. Whitlock

Based On Innovative Scientific Research

OSB was discovered and refined over the last three decades by Dr. Farrand C. Robson. His research and solutions focused on the scientific connection between anatomy, muscles, and the oral relationship with the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).

The Connection Between Oral Balance and Body Health

OSB concentrates on creating a balanced oral structure – how the teeth, gums and particularly the tongue are situated in the mouth. Dr. Robson discovered that the tongue’s contact with oral structures and how it rests in the oral cavity directly impacts the entire body. Your oral structure directly affects eating, sleeping, speaking, breathing, tension and pain.

"My neck, shoulders and back are so much better. I wake up so relaxed in the morning. It’s amazing!"

– actual patient of Dr. Whitlock

Are you feeling stressed?

When the tongue is not held normally in the mouth and it goes backwards in the throat, we can feel on-edge. You may describe this feeling as “running on empty,” stressed, overwhelmed, “just not feeling right,” irritable, disconnected or “like something is wrong.”

An Imbalanced Oral System

The structures in your mouth are meant to hold the tongue in the best place for normal function, keeping your throat open.  Pain, tension, and other struggles show up when that framework becomes distorted or out of balance from bone loss, missing teeth, distortions in the mouth, or other changes.

Common Symptoms of Imbalance

  • NECK PAIN OR STIFFNESS WHEN TURNING
  • SHOULDER OR SHOULDER BLADE PAIN OR TENSION
  • DAYTIME SLEEPINESS AND FATIGUE
  • SNORING OR SLEEP APNEA
  • HEADACHES OR HEAD PAIN
  • TEETH CLENCHING OR GRINDING
  • JAW POPPING, CRACKING, OR TIGHTNESS
  • NECK STIFFNESS WHEN TURNING
  • THROAT TIGHTNESS, FEELING LIKE YOU HAVE A “LUMP” IN YOUR THROAT, OR DISCOMFORT WITH CLOTHING TOUCHING YOUR THROAT
  • DIFFICULTY SWALLOWING, TOUGH TIME SWALLOWING PILLS OR FOOD, MAY OCCASIONALLY CHOKE ON YOUR SALIVA
  • SHALLOW BREATHING OR A FEELING OF FORGETTING TO BREATHE
  • PANIC ATTACKS, FREQUENT FEELINGS OF ANXIETY, OR BEING “ON EDGE”

Take The Self-Test

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, your oral system may be out of balance. Here’s a quick self-test…

Normal Posture

1
SIT OR STAND WITH YOUR NORMAL POSTURE
2
Breathe Deeply
3
Talk
4
Notice how Easy It Is

Straight Posture

1
SIT OR STAND WITH YOUR BACK STRAIGHT AGAINST A CHAIR OR WALL
2
Breathe Deeply
3
Talk
4
IS IT MORE DIFFICULT TO TALK OR TAKE A DEEP BREATH?

For many with an imbalanced oral system, they discover it is much easier to breathe and talk with their head forward. Your body will naturally adjust by moving your head forward to make it easier to breathe.

Advanced Solutions to Rebalance Your Oral System

Dr. Whitlock uses advanced technology of OSB to help rebalance your oral system. Once the oral system is rebalanced through adjusting a tooth or by using an oral appliance that incorporates the OSB technology, your muscles will typically relax and your posture will self-correct. The overall results can be life-changing.
