Your Teeth Have Secrets To Tell You
Everything starts at the mouth. The first cry of a newborn announces the beginning of life. « I’m here, I am ». The lips seal the mouth. They are the door between our outer and our inner selves. The mouth is a buffer zone where what goes in is prepared, predigested and what goes out is sounded, articulated. This first, toothless mouth only knows how to suckle and coo. Baby is safe nested against his mother’s breast. In fact, he is still part of his mother’s etheric body.
Teeth and autonomy
Then, around 5-8 months, signs of autonomy appear more and more and that’s when the first tooth comes out. In fact, this signals that it is time to start the weaning process. The baby’s etheric body gradually separates from its mother’s. Slowly but surely, autonomy places the baby in front of life. The teeth come out one after the other to form a shield, a bulwark which will protect and defend him. The child comes out of the « undifferentiated » and the presence of a cavity in milk teeth means he is having trouble finding his place, which often mirrors a difficulty the parent himself is having.
Position of the tongue
At the same time as the first tooth comes out, the child’s muscles become strong enough for him to start sitting up (towards 9 months). This causes a curve in the neck, which elevates the tongue towards the palate.
Indeed, for proper suction, the tongue needs to be at rest in the mouth. In fact, it fills all of the mouth because there are no teeth to « restrain» it. Gradually, as the teeth come out, the tongue is pushed towards the palate so the food that has been chewed can be swallowed and it avoids being bitten every time we swallow.
Learning to say NO
At the same time as this change occurs (from suction to chewing), the psychological phase of learning to say NO begins.
As of 9 months, even if he does not speak yet, a child knows how to nod to say no and to put his hands in front of his mouth to refuse a spoonful of soup.
Depending on his parents’ reaction to this No: respected, taken into account, denied, dismissed, forbidden… the child can make a decision along the lines of « I will no longer say No because I want Mommy and Daddy to love me ». Then, the child, submissive, lowers his head (and the normal cervical curve starts being altered). The tongue no longer has its normal position near the palate, it stays next to the teeth (causing lisping and tooth movement) and from then on until adulthood what we call primary swallowing sets in (which is normally the case only during breastfeeding).
Thus, as the child becomes older, turns into a teenager then becomes an adult, he will gradually suffer from neck pain and be unable to say no in certain circumstances throughout his life.
Rehabilitation of the lip and tongue functions will then need to be considered to solve simultaneously the functional and the emotional issues.
When the permanent teeth come out
Gradually, after the age of 6-7, the milk teeth are replaced by permanent teeth and the molars come out behind the milk teeth. The astral body appears (between 7&14 years old) and the new teeth take on all the emotions of this independent being who is the process of growing up. His teeth are the recipients of his joys and his sorrows, especially the unconscious ones.
Show me your mouth and I will tell you who you are
If the mouth as a whole (size, opening capacity, tightness of the lips) represents the ability to express oneself, the faculty to speak, to say « what is », we can go a little further in its interpretation.
The mouth can be divided into 4 parts : upper (jaw), lower (mandible), on the (your) right, on the (your) left of the body’s mid-section.
The (upper) jaw represents BEING, who I am and what is.
The mandible represents HAVING, what I want, what is done.
The right side of the mouth represents the father energy, masculine energy, social & professional matters.
The left side of the mouth represents the mother energy, feminine energy, the family, the intimate.

Dr. Catherine ROSSI, dentist, graduate of the Faculty of dental surgery of Toulouse (France) in 1984, I discovered natural medicine in 1983.
I have been practicing my profession in Paris since 1985. I have 3 daughters, 2 grand ‘daughters and I am happy!
The day I started treating myself with alternative medicine and experienced the miracles it had on my health, it became for me inconceivable to prescribe for my patients allopathic remedies as I was taught to do so in the university.
Therefore, I studied and incorporated homeopathy, aromatherapy, phytotherapy, acupuncture etc. into my practice from the very start.
This practice which has come to be defined “holistic dentistry” became for me a reason for being. It was accompanied by a personal evolution, an art of living in harmony with nature, of a consciousness in the role of each living being in the balance of our universe.
As my personal and spiritual work evolves, the care that I provide to my patients has taken on a special dimension: my relationship to another takes on character of sacredness in trust and in Love.
I present this blog to you as my modest contribution for a better world because my belief is that: on the path of life we always advance the best with good teeth.
