Product Description:
 
The book launches The Lauson System: Nine Keys to Lower Facial Harmony. It emphasizes the holistic approaches developed by myself over a 25 year period. It eliminates the need for permanent teeth extractions and surgery to achieve facial beauty and harmony eliminating present and future problems of TMJ Dysfunction, Obstructive Sleep Apnea and neck and back problems related to teeth positions. The movie star smile is achievable (at least where the teeth are concerned) by anyone at any age. If followed, this book could revolutionize the field of orthodontics.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Palate expansion at any age., May 08, 2015
By tweak
He claims that adults don't need surgery to expand their palates like is often taught. I wish he had more examples of adults in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  I saw myself and my family in this book!, April 13, 2014
By Joy C. Davidson
Having had four permanent teeth extracted almost four decades ago because my teeth were too big for my mouth and having a son dealing with sleep apnea, I saw so much of myself and my family in his book. I plan, as soon as finances permit, having myself checked out with Dr. Lauson, because I realize after reading his book that I am so fortunate I don't have health issues. I have also told my son that even though he thinks there is no need, I really strongly suggest that he have a consultation with Dr. Lauson. It can't hurt and, besides, we don't know what we might learn. I know I have already learned a great deal from just the book! Awesome job, Dr. Lauson! You made a dry subject very interesting and kept me turning the pages!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Great for patients and lay people, March 03, 2014
By Sean Bur
This book is a game changer in the field of orthondontics but also an extremely valuable resource for understanding how important it is to lay the foundation before putting braces on someone. This book should be in every parent's library so their kids and themselves as well can be healthy happy and feeling great

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A great book for parents whose children have teeth and jaw deformities, December 22, 2013
By Dan B.
When my wife and I were told by our dentist that our 18-year old son needed jaw surgery to correct a Class III underbite, we were very concerned. Our orthodontist concurred with this course of action. We watched several YouTube videos of patients who had undergone orthognathic surgery. We then read some books by patients who had undergone this surgery and had shared their experiences. This surgery would be more difficult than we had anticipated, and now, we were quite worried. By a sheer stroke of luck we came across Dr. Lauson’s book on Amazon.

Dr. Lauson takes a systems approach to the correction of malformed teeth. In other words, it is not just about teeth; he relates malocclusion to a number of interrelated factors, which are included in his nine keys to straight teeth, correct jaw structure, overall proportion of face, and healthy nasal breathing as well as prevention of TMJ pain and development of sleep apnea later in life. In my opinion, he correctly relates many of the causal problems to mouth breathing and an underdeveloped upper jaw. As I read the book, I could checkmark many of his nine keys as applicable to our son. In fact, my wife had earlier identified that mouth breathing was probably causing our son’s problems, but we had no clear explanation about the other factors and how these interacted with each other. Dr. Lauson’s book connects the dots in a language that parents can easily understand. Thankfully, our son did not have to go through surgery. Regardless of the decision taken by parents, they may want to read this informative book first.
