The Dental Distress Syndrome Quantified
By: Dr. A.C. Fonder
The W. B. Saunder’s Medical Dictionary defines a syndrome as a complex of symptoms; a set of symptoms which occur together; the sum of any morbid state.1
Research has demonstrated that excessive dental distress routinely coexists with a pattern of chronic symptoms that are found throughout all systems of the body.2-21,31,32 These problems quite routinely normalize when the dental dysfunction is eliminated. 8,15,30,32,38,43,52,53,88,89 Why?
There appears to exist a controlling relationship within the body that puts the dental system into a causative role of symptomatology, where a dysfunctioning dental occlusion creates ill-effects throughout many distant areas of the united body. Fonder has termed this the Dental Distress Syndrome.20-23-32
Seemingly scientists have not fully digested all of the discoveries that have appeared in the medical literature, or they have simply brushed aside very important findings that did not fit into preconceived ideas.
