Dental Procedure Could Help You Lose Weight

How Does it Work?

We all have a built-in system that tells our brains when we've had enough to eat. It's called satiety.  The problem is, when we eat too fast we often eat more than we need, because our body doesn't have enough time to send the "I'm full" signal to the brain.

But, for most of us, will power alone isn't enough to slow us down.  our fast-paced world has trained most of us to gobble-down our food - even when we're not really in a hurry.  Eating too fast has become second nature.  It's a bad habit we learned by accident - but it's also a habit that can be modified.

Eat slower.  Eat less.  It really works! 

The DDS System is a new, patented approach that slows down the eating process so that your own built-in satiety response can allow you to feel full after consuming less food.

You may not remember the last time you had a four course meal at home but how many times have you been at a nice restaurant and eaten bread, an appetizer and a salad only to find you are not hungry anymore when the main course arrives?  That is the simple principle behind the DDS System.  It's the reason it works.

The DDS System includes a discreet oral insert that's custom-made just for you.  Worn only during meals, the DDS System actually reduces the size of your mouth...retraining you to take smaller bites.  Smaller bites require you to eat more slowly.  And eating slowly allows you to feel full before you've eaten more than you need.

Each DDS System comes with a booklet on care and use as well as a booklet on positive lifestyle changes.  A convienent pocket or purse case is also included when you recieve your personal DDS System.

A one-time investment in yourself.

With the DDS System, there are no on-going fees to pay, no special foods to buy and no meetings to attend.

If at anytime you find yourself returning to your old habits of eating too quickly, simply start using the DDS appliance again.  There are no additional costs and the appliance will continue to do it's job of retraining your bite size so that you can eat less and feel satisfied. 

How will I eat less by using the DDS System™?

Behavior modification affecting how we eat is an important breakthrough. The DDS System™ appliance trains you to take smaller bites and to eat more slowly. By slowing down your intake of food, you allow your body to feel satisfied without overeating.

Is the appliance comfortable?

Every DDS System™ appliance is custom-made and fitted by a DDS System -certified dentist for comfort. Users report that they become accustomed to the appliance after only a couple of meals. As for how it affects the sensation of eating, some say that taking the time to eat more slowly allowed them to enjoy more of the taste of their food and actually made the meal more enjoyable.

When do I use it?

You use the DDS System™ only during meals. It slips into the mouth easily, and is practically invisible to others. Between meals, it is small and light enough to be carried in its case inside a purse or pocket.

How do I take care of the appliance?

Cleansing in warm water or brushing with toothpaste and toothbrush after each meal is all you need to do. Care should be taken to keep the DDS System™ clean and free of food particles after each use.

Will eating more slowly help me eat less?

According to the National Institutes of Health, eating more slowly is important to eating less.

How does wearing the appliance effect speech?

A few users say that no one notices any difference. Most report that wearing the appliance effects their speech, but in a manageable way. Again it is only used when eating.

How much does the DDS System™ cost?

The DDS System is priced comparitively with other dental appliances and procedures, such as teeth bleaching or snore guards. .

Why do I get it from a dentist?

The custom-made DDS System™ calls for impression-making and fitting procedures that dentists are accustomed to in other parts of their practice. As valued providers of oral health care, dentists are valuable partners in bringing this breakthrough in eating behavior modification to the public.
