One of the greatest advancements in modern dentistry is non-surgical, non-invasive under bite correction. This treatment is a true bite correction and not just cosmetic camouflage with porcelain veneers. The treatment does not require grinding down healthy tooth structure and improves the natural facial features of the patients face.
Correct Under Bites without Braces, Jaw Surgery or Grinding Down Healthy Teeth
How to Fix an Underbite in One or Two Weeks
The most difficult part of this treatment is helping the patient to believe that this treatment is not “too good to be true”. The second most difficult part of the treatment is to help the patient understand that this is not “smile lift” or “anti-aging dentistry. This is a specific method developed in order to avoid confusion with any other methods and it only takes a week or two.
The Chin is Really Smaller than it Appears to be
The secret to this method is to know the natural location for the patient’s bite and jaw position. This patient’s chin looks larger in the “before” photo because her bite makes her chin look larger than normal. The chin looks smaller in the after photo because the bite and chin position is idealized. The profile can also be significantly improved as this treatment using Face Lift Dentistry® method with VENLAY® restorations that actually corrects the patient's bite.
Healthy Jaw Position = Smaller looking Chin with Under Bite Alternative Method
The treatment was completed in only two weeks, no pain, no shots, no grinding down healthy tooth structure and we know that it sounds too good to be true. The secret to getting an actual under bite correction is with idealizing the patients jaw position with a quick, easy and painless Face Lift Dentistry® method.
What is an Underbite?
An underbite is a Class III malocclusion or “bad bite”. An underbite is when a person’s lower jaw (mandible) protrudes or extends forward, and in front of the upper jaw (maxilla), giving the chin and lower teeth prominence. The majority of under bite, and even overbite, cases can be corrected by non-surgical bite correction such as braces. In its severe form, an underbite can distort the shape and appearance of a person’s face, and even dramatically affect their speech. These extreme cases are also called skeletal malocclusions. The cause behind skeletal malocclusions, is either a very large mandible (overbite) or a very short maxillary bone (underbite), and often requires surgical treatment or orthognathic surgery.
A protruding lower jaw is generally hereditary because of the difference in size between the large lower jaw and smaller upper jaw. Bad chewing habits and thumb-sucking generally do not cause the protruding lower jaw. Thumb-sucking generally causes the chin to look small because the lower jaw is pushed back that is generally associated with an overbite whereas an under bite classically causes the chin to look too large because the jaw is protruding forward.
Undebite Treatment Considerations
There are a number of considerations to think through before attempting bite correction treatment for a malocclusion, such as an under bite. The first factor to consider is the age of the patient. According to the American Association of Orthodontics, an orthodontist should see a patient by the time they are 7 years of age. The idea being that bite corrections are more easily performed during a child’s growth spurt. While baby teeth are still present, orthodontists can spot problems with jaw growth, lower risk to protruding front teeth, correct harmful oral habits, and guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position that promotes better oral health.
Another factor a patient should consider is the physical dysfunction an underbite causes in their daily life. Some people experience speech impediments such as lisps, while others experience low self-esteem. Teenagers are extremely vulnerable to bullying and other teasing behaviors, and underbites can elicit undue stress at a particularly difficult time in their lives. Secondly, a patient must consider the severity of the underbite. If it interferes with a patient’s ability to chew or speak, or makes them feel self-conscious, then it may be worth considering. Since treatment plans for underbites can be lengthy, a patient must decide for themselves whether they can truly commit to treatment. They must also fully understand both the risks and benefits involved.
Porcelain Veneers can’t Correct Under Bites
This cannot be done with porcelain veneers, as porcelain veneers cannot correct the bite. Veneers are only, as Dr. Muslin puts it, "cosmetic camouflage". He also believes that, "True under bite correction should involve an improvement in the patient's bite along with a better facial profile". Most patients do not have the most natural jaw position even if they have an overbite or under bite and these patients are really physically compromised. Bad bites physically handicap the patient for their entire life span.
Why do the Dentists tell me I have to have Jaw Surgery?
When malocclusion issues cannot be corrected by braces alone, surgery is another option. Orthognathic or jaw surgery is a procedure that can be very complex depending upon the severity of the malocclusion and the cause behind it. In general, the surgery involves two possible procedures: cuts in the bone to realign the upper jawbone forward, or cutting the bone and repositioning the lower jawbone to realign the chin and lower teeth back. Some cases may also require a combination of the two procedures.
For those suffering from moderate to severe underbites, bite correction in the form of orthognathic surgery is an excellent option. Since this is an extensive procedure, no one should commit to this lightly. One major factor when considering surgery is the cost. Dental or medical insurance may or may not cover the entire surgical procedure. It’s also important to understand that orthodontics may be required as part of the treatment plan after the surgery is completed. Finally, since various medical and dental professionals can be involved in underbite correction, the cost can be high. If surgery is required, the cost of the anesthesiologist, the orthodontics and the post-surgery care are all contributing factors. Other factors to consider include:
- Time spent away from work or school
- Associated discomfort
- Risks and complications such as infection and lip numbness
Deciding upon surgery is a truly personal choice. But with the help of your regular dentist, a qualified oral surgeon and orthodontist, you should feel totally confident in your decision to begin the next chapter of your new life with a healthier and improved smile.
The professions solution has been jaw surgery and braces and for some patients this is the best course of treatment. However, jaw surgery has risks and there are problems after surgery. Patients miss work or school and spend a great deal of time going to the orthodontist for braces. Very few people have ever heard or know of the Face Lift Dentistry® method. Dr. Muslin will begin training other dentists in the future.
Jaw Surgery Alternative
Improve Facial Profiles without Risk of Surgery
A protruding lower jaw is generally hereditary because of the difference in size between the large lower jaw and smaller upper jaw. Patients with under bites are very self-conscious of their lower jaws and when they learn that their lower jaw is actually more normal in size they are excited about the treatment. This patient’s lower jaw was in an unhealthy position until his under bite was corrected using the Face Lift Dentistry® method.
Improved Facial Profiles - Before and After
This patient was treated without the use of braces or surgery. In the “before” photo, she has a large looking chin that is really not too large. The chin looks large because of her bite which once corrected, her chin looks and actually “is” normal in size. Her chin looks smaller because her new bite moves the chin to a healthy position. Her facial profile looks balanced because the bite was built to establish a healthy jaw position, which at the same time improved the proportions of her face.
Correcting the Under Bite and Self Esteem
Low self-esteem associated with a large chin and oversized lower protruding jaw can be a problem for these patients and the treatment has generally involved surgery and braces. Although surgery is the most common form of treatment, there are less invasive choices that have distinct advantages.
When should a Malocclusion be treated?
Treatment is best completed after 18 years of age because the lower jaw can keep growing if treatment is started too early. However, early treatment can be helpful and minimize the impact of poor self-esteem.
Under Bite Correction and Age Reversing Dentistry
Under bite correction without grinding down any of his natural teeth, without jaw surgery and without braces. Treatment took a matter of weeks instead of years and the patient has something he could not get with jaw surgery and braces . . . white teeth and the perfect bite for his facial structure that was tested in advance. You can’t test surgery.
Correcting an Under Bite
Correcting or treating the protruding lower jaw depends on the severity of the jaw size problem. The greater the severity, the more surgery and braces are indicated. However, many patients can have a non-invasive surgical alternative that is unfortunately seldom presented as an option to the patient.
Jaw Surgery Alternative to Under Bite Correction
You Can’t Test Jaw Surgery

Under Bite Correction and VENLAY® Restorations
This is a “patent pending” method that uses VENLAY® Restorations that were developed by Dr. Muslin in order to correct under bites and overbites and bad bites without grinding down healthy teeth. All 28 VENLAY® Restorations were placed in one afternoon and he went to the Los Angeles Dodger Game that evening and ate normally. You can’t do that with surgery and braces.
Correction with Face Lift Dentistry®
Dr. Sam Muslin’s unique Face Lift Dentistry® treatment is the analysis of the patient's facial features that can be enhanced by only working on the patient’s teeth. Big changes in the shape of the patient’s face can be achieved quickly. The health of the patient is improved because the bite is now biologically balanced and he can design the teeth to support the face permanently. The facial support and facial dimensions are created by his facial analysis that combines with his scientific knowledge of TMJ treatment.
Dr. Sam Muslin analyses the face. He watches the patient speak in order to determine lip movement, thickness and the visibility of the teeth from all angles and expressions. His facial analysis is one of the most comprehensive in the industry as he has the ability to actually understand what this patient’s face will look like in 10 to 20 to 30 years in the future.
Reversing Years of Aging
His lower jaw is forced forward by his bite making it look much larger than normal. His upper teeth are behind his lower teeth. Everyone is forced to adapt to the bite we have and over time the bite gets worse. This patient had cosmetic and physical problems and to solve them he was told his only solution was jaw surgery and braces that would take years at considerable risk. He was treated with VENLAY ® Restorations using the Face Lift Dentistry® method without surgery or braces and even without grinding down any of his healthy teeth in just a few weeks. He saw the actual porcelain in his mouth before it was bonded so he was in complete control of the shade, shape, feel and cosmetics. You can’t do that with braces.
Face Lift Dentistry® is The New Age of Modern High Tech Care
His ability to design the teeth to support the face while developing the jaw position and facial profile while combining all of the cosmetic elements of traditional cosmetic dentistry into an elaborate treatment sequence that is easy for the patient. With over 30 years of cosmetic and reconstructive experience and one of the world's most comprehensive before and after photo galleries he has “raised the bar” on comprehensive dental care. There are a lot of cosmetic dentists but only one Face Lift Dentist®.
Patients have had their entire bite reconstructed consisting of every tooth in their mouth that involved replacing the old crowns, fillings, veneers and saving all of the healthy teeth in as little as just one week. Other patients that need dental implants and possibly gums treatment can take longer. Some patients get their upper teeth done in one year and then the lowers in another year.
The variations to his treatment are endless and are tailored to the patient’s dental health and financial ability. On the first visits we discuss the possibilities and possibly take records if the patient wishes to move forward and on the very next day, treatment can be started if time is available and the patient is ready.
