The proud father of three children;
Dr. Williams developed a cost effective transcranial radiographic technique that yields sharp, accurate and diagnostic images of the jaw joint or temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) and related structures. He has conducted extensive studies of this jaw joint area on many sports professionals including Muhammad Ali, Thomas Hearns, and Reggie White and other participants of contact sports such as boxing, football, martial arts, volleyball, soccer and rugby. His findings from these clinical and radiographic studies resulted in his invention and patenting of the Williams Intra-oral Protective Sports System (WIPSS)
A mechanism of brain injury, never identified or studied, is caused by impacts to the head, more specifically the lower jaw mandible. The energy or forces from these impacts are further accelerated by causing the bones of the lower jaw condyle to slam onto the thin temporal bone at the base of the skull norma basalis. These combined and accelerated impact energies are transferred directly through the jaw joint space to the temporal lobe of the brain. The temporal lobe of the brain rest upon the temporal bone of the jaw joint complex or norma basalis. This overlooked and misunderstood mechanism of injury is responsible for many temporal mandibular injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and brain concussions.
The patented WIPSS appliance worn in the mouth enhances breathing while locking the lower jaw in a down and forward positions. Upon impact to the head or lower jaw, the locked, down and forward positioning of the lower jaw created when wearing WIPSS prevents the condyle of the mandible from slamming against the base of the skull or norma basalis. The WIPSS appliance also transfers this explosive head impact energy away from the jaw joint area to the appliance and teeth. These structures are better equipped to dissipate these energies or forces than the delicate tissue of the brain. Clinical testing and other studies have shown that this uniquely designed product (WIPSS) prevents TMJ injuries and brain concussions from many head and lower jaw impacts that are common to sports.
As an inventor, he has authored and owns three U.S. patents and a number of international patents. The U.S patents are as follows:
U.S. Patent # 5,636,379 Jaw-Joint Protective Device.
Dr. Williams has published his radiographic findings as they relate to temporal mandibular joint injuries, brain concussions and other head related injuries in the following text:
He has also published in a number of sports magazines, brochures, pamphlets, journals and others.
Dr. Williams frequently addresses medical, dental and sports organizations, presenting his radiographic findings and information on facial, head, jaw joint pathology and brain concussions. Such organizations include the following which is a partial listing:
