Back teeth have multiple roots that provide a sound foundation for the bite. Back teeth, or posterior teeth, provide protection for the front teeth. When the back teeth are missing, there is a great deal of stress placed on the front teeth. Sometimes this happens when only a few back teeth are missing.
When a patient does not have back teeth, they usually experience some level of facial collapse. The back teeth provide vertical facial support that supports the face. The patient below had a genetic condition called hypodontia that caused her not to have back teeth. She had a bi-lateral crossbite, cannot chew properly, cannot speak her words clearly, takes a very long time to eat a normal meal and was told that she did not have enough bone for dental implants and that braces cannot help her.
Compare the improvements in her speaking ability and confidence in the before and after segments.
Her life has been transformed with every person she meets and with every social encounter she will experience in the future because she is a new person. She is beaming with confidence and she can speak her words much more clearly, which has improved the “credibility factor” in how she represents herself. Life-transformations without the pain from the dental drill, bite corrections without years of braces or jaw surgery make VENLAY® Restoration Dentistry many levels above and beyond cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers. We are now ready to start her next phase of treatment.
Now that we have accomplished a life transformation with the teeth that she has, without drilling down her healthy teeth, we can move forward with the next phase of treatment. Never make the mistake of letting a dentist drill down your healthy teeth even if the cost is less. The pain, risks, and consequences are not worth it. We can now move forward with bone grafts that can add additional bone to her jaws to be able to provide dental implants in the future.
Patients are flying in from all over the world in order to get “optimized” rather than just “patchwork” type of care. These patients are being treated by the one doctor that developed this method in a ‘’boutique dentistry” type of atmosphere. They are getting “optimized” care in a much shorter time period without the drilling, risks, pain, and many dental visits that the other methods are using. This method saves a lot of time for those successful business professionals that want a higher level of care.
We continue to see patients that already had their teeth drilled down, jaws cut, wore clear aligners, and deeply regret it. We have replaced all of their crowns, and veneers provide a level of results that gave them the “validity” that transformed them from the thick white fake teeth that make them look like “you are trying too hard.”
Call us and get the validity, confidence, and professional appearance that can transform lives.
