This patient had a bad bite that caused insomnia due to lack of space for her tongue, poor digestion, TMJ pain and difficulty chewing. She also had headaches, neck and jaw pain. It was the annoying type of pain that just did not go away. She saw multiple dentists and specialists for her jaw pain and nothing worked. This patient does not want to take pain medications and is looking for a solution to her problems. She had no idea that her frequent episodes of waking up in the middle of the night was caused by her bite.
View a quick 2 minute video to hear this patient description of the benefits she experienced.
It wasn't until after she was treated that the remarkable benefits of as she said, "sleeping better", "better digestion" and "the pain in my jaw that I had for over 8 years is gone" that she realized it was reversed with dentistry! She went to her dentist, then another dentist, then a dental specialist and began treatment but nothing worked. She was trying to get comfortable and after a couple of years of treatment, she was unhappier than ever.
She could not chew her food comfortably and could not find a comfortable jaw position and she was not sleeping well. Unfortunately, a large percentage of our population suffers from a bad bite that contributes to multiple health problems that cause premature aging and never realize the solution. She found Dr. Sam Muslin's website and was so impressed that she flew from Hawaii to California to get a consultation with this "special" dentist that had suck remarkable photos of his work.
After a careful analysis of her overbite and the lack of progress from wearing removable retainer type of treatment, he recommended his non-invasive treatment to correct her bad bite. She reminded Dr. Sam Muslin that she did not want white porcelain veneers and did not want whiter teeth. She said, “I like my teeth just the way they are and do not want cosmetic dentistry of any kind”. Dr. Muslin realized that she had bad porcelain crowns that had food impaction between her teeth, she had a deep overbite with no room for her tongue and he recommended replacing all of the old crowns on her teeth and building porcelain over her healthy teeth so they do not need to be ground down all in just one visit so he could correct her bite her allow her jaw to reposition itself on the second visit. This remarkable dental treatment does not require grinding down healthy teeth, does not require surgery of any kind.
Most patients never realize that they are getting old from the inside out. How many people have associated a bad bite with snoring, sleep apnea or insomnia? Most patients don't even know that they have a low blood oxygen level that saps their energy level. As we get older, the bite gets worse, the airway gets smaller, the blood oxygen level is lower and these patients age faster from the "inside out". Natural jaw repositioning without jaw surgery is the corner stone of his exclusive bite correction treatment method. It improves the patients airway, makes more room for their tongue, they breath better, sleep better and chew more efficiently for better digestion.
Face Lift Dentistry® is a treatment protocol developed by Dr. Muslin for maximum total body health that improves the quality of his patient's lives. There can be an enormous cosmetic component even though she chose the same shade of porcelain that matched her natural teeth. The advanced cosmetic dentistry benefits came from the change in shape to her entire face from improving the position of her lower jaw without surgery. She looks years younger because first of all she feels a lot better and her facial wrinkles, lips and cheeks now have permanent mechanical support from her new bite and the shape of her teeth. The reason that she looks years younger is that Face Lift Dentistry's® neuromuscular dentistry treatment physically allowed her jaw to move to a more comfortable, forward and downward position. Dr. Muslin says, “Three-dimensionally getting the lower jaw in the best possible position without surgery seems like a magical idea, but it is a reality with todays technology”.
The “old lady look” comes from deep overbites that continue to worsen as the teeth and the bite wear down. The "old lady look" also comes from facial collapse from worn down teeth and bite. The short round shape to the face is typical of older people and the more egg shaped face is typical of a younger person. The goal of treatment is to create the shape of a younger person's face in an older person which removes 10 or more years from the "older lady" face. Facial collapse is totally reversed without surgery.
