people are flooding oral surgeons with requests to wire their jaws shut but the gim mick probably will not lead to permanent thinness says a dental journal Persons who need a gim mick such as wiring of the teeth to lose weight are prob ably so poorly motivated in the first place that longterm success with weight control is extremely doubtful it says An editorial in the current issue of fte Journal of Oral Surgery by Dr Daniel M Laskin editor notes that mere immobilization of the jaws does not guarantee loss of weight Patients with wired teeth can actually gain weight as a result of poorly planned diets or from failure willingly to reduce caloric intake he points out Laskin an oral surgery pro fessor at the University of Illinois school of dentistry notes that many oral surgeons are being flooded with re quests to wire teeth for weight reduction as a result of news accounts of a woman who lost 100 pounds in this way Laskin cautions that wiring the jaws shut also has poten tial complications including shifting of teeth periodontal disease and tooth decay And he notes also that there is the remote but more serious possibility that a per son will vomit and draw food and gastric secretions into the lungs Ford Syrian minister lay groundwork for Middle East talks Washington AP President Ford conferred to day with the Syrian foreign minister to lay the groundwork for
