Pain and Discomfort
Despite going to more than one dentist to repair her growing list of dental problems, Deborah remain unsatisfied and in pain. In fact, she suspected that some of the treatment she received was actually causing her more pain.
She had continual neck pain and splitting headaches. Chewing was proving to be difficult and uncomfortable.
Deborah was also looking for a better cosmetic experience with her dental work.
Dr. Sam Muslin’s Website
Dr. Sam Muslin, DDS, MAGD, has been fortunate enough to have his patients agree to place their before and after treatment photos on his website. In addition, he has a lot of information on his website about the different techniques he uses to practice his trademarked Face Lift Dentistry ®.
Included in this information was a wealth of material on the function of the jaw joint (TMJ) and bite reconstruction. Deborah felt that her problems could be traced to these to facial areas and was impressed with Dr. Muslin’s knowledge of these areas as they relate to dentistry.
Dr. Muslin thought a bite reconstruction was the best treatment route for Deborah. Her bite would be aligned and she would end up with straight white teeth.
Deborah could hardly believe it! In fact, during the first visit, the doctor adjusted her teeth slightly, providing Deborah with some immediate relief
Next, the doctor added some height to Deborah’s back bite. Using temporary filling material, it was a painless process leaving her teeth feeling normal with no pain when chewing.
The doctor used veneers to help change the shape and color of her teeth. The veneers resulted in a wider, fuller smile.
Dr. Muslin also felt that instant braces would be a better solution than Invisalign®to straighten Deborah’s teeth. Invisalign ® was the treatment she had already started at the recommendation of another dentist.
The instant braces proved to be a better choice for Deborah. They would allow for teeth straightening in a matter of weeks as opposed to months or even years.
The Results of Deborah’s Treatment
The treatment proved to be very successful. Deborah’s smile appears youthful and makes her face look brighter. The porcelain crowns support the jaw joint and the porcelain veneers support her teeth and face.
She was very happy with her rejuvenated face and by the way, her bite is very comfortable again!
