Dental Device for Weight Loss?

A simple dental device that transforms the shape of your mouth is being promoted as a way to help wearers lose extra pounds. But some are cautioning that buyers should beware. The custom-made device, called the DDS system, sits on the roof of the mouth during meals. The theory is that wearers are forced to take smaller bites, which slows down the rate of eating. Slowing the rate at which you eat allows the stomach enough time to signal to the brain that it is full, and that can cut down on the amount of food you eat. While this is certainly a less drastic option than the weight loss surgeries that are growing in popularity, it does not seem to be a practical long-term solution.
