1. A teeth separating system comprising:
a left base component and a right base component, each base component having upper and lower surfaces in a generally horizontal orientation, each base component having an exterior edge, a forward point, a rearward point, and an interior edge, each base component having a generally oval central extent and a forward extent and a semicircular rearward extent; and
a support component in an arcuate configuration positionable in a generally vertical orientation, the support component having inner and outer faces, the support component having upper and lower edges, the upper edge being perpendicular to and integrally formed with the base components at the exterior edge, the support component having terminal ends located adjacent to the base components, the support component having an arcuate forward section between the base components, the lower surfaces of the base components being spaced from the upper surface of the forward section by an elevational space, two enlarged regions (204) formed in the support component, each enlarged region being located beneath an associated base component, each enlarged region having a common height measured vertically, two coupling lines (206), each coupling line being located between an associated enlarged region and associated base component, each enlarged region having a height measured vertically from 1.0 to 2.0 centimeters, each enlarged region having a width measured horizontally of from 1.5 to 2.5 centimeters, each enlarged region having a thickness of from 1.0 to 4.0 millimeters, a rectangular cut-out (208) formed in each enlarged region, each rectangular cut out having a height between 25 percent and 75 percent of the height of each enlarged region, each rectangular cut out having a width between 25 percent and 75 percent of the width of each enlarged region.
