 Dr. Ted Rothstein, inventor of OJW, presents a theory and practice course to teach you his simplified method to safely provide the

service to carefully selected patients as part of a healthcare team:

 

ORTHODONTIC JAW WIRING refers to the entire domain of the OJW provider's responsibility  for selecting patients according to a specified criteria, providing them with informed consent so that they are aware of the risks and limitations of OJW, then wiring their jaws  together by a prescribed method, transmitting that know-how to the patient (especially if they are not able to return to your office and cannot find a professional level provider) and finally, re-examining them and rewiring them periodically after examination has shown that their dentition, gingiva, and TMJ have remained healthy. The OJW provider's sole responsibility is maintaining the health of the TMJ, gingiva and dentition. Weight loss remains the patient's responsibility. Patient-care responsibility is terminated when the OJW is removed. OJW presumes that the service is provided under the auspices of a healthcare team which includes: the patient's physician and dentist, the provider of the OJW and where applicable: a dietician,  the patient's psychologist and/or psychotherapist as well as the input of a bariatric surgeon.

OJWDemoDevice Prototype

 

"OJWDemoDevice": Rendering by Sculpteo.com  3D printing

This device simulates orthodontic brackets with vertical posts bonded to the patient's upper and lower canines and premolars. The dental professional who provides the service called  "orthodontic jaw wiring-for-weight-control" would use this device to teach the patient how to wrap .014 dead-soft stainless steel wire around the brackets in a "figure-8" configuration so as to create a position of the upper and lower teeth/jaws  called "Rothstein's OJW position of physiologic rest" which position permits the lower jaw to move 2mm-4mm in all directions. Such a position allows normal speech but prevents the ingestion of solid foods. See:
