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.
The featured patient is aging too fast, has thin lips, TMJ problems, and bulging masseter muscles from grinding. The shape of her face is short and round like that of an older person. Her bite is worn down, her face is too short, and her jaw is in the wrong position. These are common symptoms of bite collapse.
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.
A posterior collapsed bite is a dental and a medical problem where the teeth, the 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. Bite and facial collapse can be corrected non-invasively in a couple of weeks.
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.
An overbite, small teeth, a collapsed bite and the shape of her face made her look older. Her cosmetic dentist had no knowledge about this non-invasive anti-aging dentistry method. Cosmetic dentists offer porcelain veneers which cannot improve the shape of the patient’s face.
Many patients with issues simmilar to this patient wrongly assume their problem is a collapsed jaw bone or jaw bone loss. Watch the quick 3-minute video above as this patient explains how she felt before and after treatment.
The most innovative treatment needs to improve the health of the patient along with reversing years of aging, chin size, facial support, speaking clarity, TMJ pain, digestion and improved sleeping ability.
The single most innovative bite collapse bite reconstruction method is the Face Lift Dentistry® method when combined with non-invasive VENLAY® Restorations. The treatment is non-invasive and pain free and all of the patient’s teeth remain intact. Don’t let a cosmetic dentistry try to fool you when they say that they “will not grind down your teeth very much”. Bite collapse correction with Face Lift Dentistry® can be done without shots, without pain, without drilling and without porcelain veneers by using VENLAY® restorations.
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.
