Publisher's Summary

There's a silent epidemic in Western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways?  

Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. 

Jaws will change your life. Every parent should listen to this audiobook.

Poor audio quality

I couldn't continue listening on. It feels like it is narrated by a computer. The sample is good enough, the rest is absolutely horrible

in the vein of cheaper natural solutions

this is a great read, though stressful. basically, breast feeding, keeping your children's mouth closed during sleep/normal daily routine will help develop proper oak posture. this will prevent malocclusion, this preventing many more difficult diseases like adhd, sleep apnea, heart disease, obesity... so. breathe through your nose, chew tough things and exercise your jaw, and keep your mouth closed when not speaking. teeth should rest lightly touching. maybe a little longer than necessary but still totally fascinating.

These Should Be The Basics

Just like so many areas of health "care" (health "repair" as the book suggests), we've got foundational understanding twisted and thrown physiology by the wayside. It's so easy to understand as it's laid out herein, why don't we just learn these as basics in the first place if we're to be taught anything at all about oral care growing up.

Good information

I am a dentist and have seen a lot of this first hand. It is interesting to see the evolutionary process of the human jaw and how it relates to malocclusion. I think it’s promotion of preventative postural and program therapy based treatment is interesting the American healthcare system is very far away to promote something like this as what it states in the booms we are very treatment based as preventative care is not valued.
