How does dentistry have such a dramatic effect on the face? The secret to improving the shape of the patient’s face is to optimize the teeth, bite and jaw location to the structural anatomy of the patient. Most patients do not have the ideal jaw position for their structural anatomy, so they silently suffer physically and aesthetically.
The problem is that there was not a way to balance the face by optimizing the TMJ, bite, facial support, chin size, facial proportions, and profiles non-invasively. Dentistry offers options to drill down your teeth, smile type patchwork dentistry or years of braces or clear aligners, or years of jaw surgery and braces. Today, it can be done without drilling away your healthy teeth, without jaw surgery and braces and without taking years to get it done by building a new layer over the biting surfaces of your teeth called VENLAY® Bite Restorations. It can be completed in just a few weeks.
Do you want a cosmetic dentist to grind down all of your teeth for a full mouth reconstruction and still not get Face Lift Dentistry? How about jaw surgery and years of braces or Invisalign® and still not be optimized? Porcelain veneers don’t help at all structurally as they don’t improve bites or facial profiles? Most patients have a face and bone structure that has not been optimized to TMJ function even if they did jaw surgery, full mouth reconstructions, veneers or had no bite treatment what so ever. The secret to living life to it’s fullest is to be structurally optimized without damaging your body.
Patient and dentists are having a hard time understanding how the teeth and the bite are directly related to the location of the lower jaw and the shape of the face. This includes how large or small the chin appears along with the size of the lower jaw from the facial profile perspective. The shape of your face is directly determined by how far your jaw closes and the jaw position and bite that forces your jaw into its present “unnatural” position. Yes, we said your present position is “unnatural.”
Yes, we also said, “force.” Most of the time, the only reason your face looks the way it does is that when you bite your teeth together your lower jaw is “forced” into an “unnatural” position that is not coordinated with your TMJ functionality. Face Lift Dentistry® works by using JawTrac® to get the right jaw location painlessly and quickly. Then, VENLAY® Bite Restorations allow your lower jaw to be in its most advantageous position aesthetically and functionally which actually is its “natural position.”
For the first time in their lives, TMJ pain is relieved if you have it, posture can improve, sleeping is improved because we have a better airway, the shape of our faces and profiles build self-confidence beyond veneers and cosmetic dentistry. As one patient recently said, “This method is way beyond cosmetic dentistry, it builds a whole new lifestyle.”
