Bite Collapse and Premature Aging

When a patient ages prematurely because of the shape of their face and has a small looking chin with facial wrinkles, they are experiencing bite collapse. Bite correction is the key to improving the shape of the patient’s face and reverse premature aging.

She saw that her face looked older than other people her age and after searching the Internet realized that her bite was collapsed.

Bite Collapse Definition

Bite collapse is a dental and a medical problem where the teeth, the patient’s bite and the TMJ do not function in harmony because of an uneven distribution of bite forces, resulting in severe worn down teeth which leads to a change in facial features. With today’s VENLAY® Restoration technology, this condition can be corrected non-invasively in a couple of weeks.

Collapsed Bite Symptoms

The face gets physically shorter and the lips look thinner because the chin is too close to the patients nose because the bite is collapsed. The patient’s face is short and round and has increased facial wrinkles.

How to Fix a Collapsed Bite

When a patient gets a face-lift, the shape of their faces stays essentially the same. Bite collapse correction is a vital component to having a younger looking face by balancing the structural shape to the face. The biggest benefits to correcting bite collapse are health benefits. Usually patients with bite collapse also experience TMJ symptoms and clicking and popping jaws, headaches, neck aches, back pain, sleeping problems, premature aging and increased wrinkles with thinning lips.

The patient had an overbite; small teeth, a collapsed bite and the shape of her face matched that of an older person. She did not want to look older unnecessarily and her cosmetic dentist had no knowledge about this non-invasive method. Cosmetic dentists offer porcelain veneers which cannot improve the shape of the patient’s face.

Collapsed Bite Reconstruction

No porcelain crowns, no porcelain veneers and no tooth grinding are the key to the best treatment. VENLAY® Restorations are highly predictable because the teeth remain healthy. It just doesn’t make sense to grind down healthy teeth.
