The spine is the communication center between the brain and the rest of the body.

In ancient Sanskrit the name for the spine is derived from sacred Mount Meru. Mt. Meru is considered as the axis of Earth. Likewise the spine is the axis of our body.

Through neural action potential, all our emotions, feelings, movements, experiences, functioning of our every organ and even the act of breathing are routed through spinal posture.

The spine can withstand around 4–4.5 k of load. If the spine is not neutral then postural and pain related conditions begin.

We can view the connection between the bite and the spine during development
Between ages 5-6 the spine is completed. The stability required for this growth is provided by core muscles and the relationship of upper and lower jaw, angle and in particular the childhood molars.

At the age of 6–7 years adult first molar teeth erupt to give stability to the cervical spine. First molars are the teeth with biggest surface area, and they can withstand maximum biting force.

Here's when the bite relationship forms with the young developed spine.

The optimal height and relationship ensures that cervical spine remains in most neutral position. In this position the head generates about 4.5–5 k of force on the spine.

During these development times, underdeveloped jaws can change the molar relationship and have an impact on spinal posture.

It has been found that if the lower molar is too far back (class II) or too far forward (class III) it results in forward head posture.

The reason is likely due to the relationship of the airway volume, and development of the jaw bone. Jawbones house the airways, and the jaws hold the trinity between muscle, bone, and airway space.

If you notice forward head posture or mouth breathing in you or a family member, it may be associated with how the jaws have developed.

Signs include:
• Narrow upper arch (palate)
• Open mouth posture
• Low tongue posture
• Snoring
• Slumped forward posture
