tissue relaxation dentistry

developing a range of chemicals that relax tensions in connective tissue

Optimally by being non toxic and effectively by acting within an acceptable medical time frame.

Potassium nitrate is the traditional meat tenderising agent. You can apply modest amounts to the tongue with no ill effect.

injection of amyl nitrite would be sufficient I believe.

       I don't know. I just saw the category. Hmmm

       Why would you want to soften connective tissue?

       Why would you want to tenderise the tongue, unless it's been caustic recently?

       So it's not just me I gather.

       This idea appears to be an ineffective solution to problem that doesn't exist.

       Are we trying to loosen teeth, so that they're easier to pull out?

       There are people in Glasgow who can do that for free.

       There are diverse examples of why this is no barrier to success.

       I was going for something that will eventually be a lot more controllable. Like, making the teeth loose enough to move then reversing the process. Orthodontics in a fraction of the time.   

       Not a clue on the actual type of I guess muscle involved. M

       The teeth are held in place by bone, not muscle. If they were held in place by muscle, orthodontics would be unnecessary. What you need is a temporary bone softener.
