Baby Boomers Dental Health
Because people are living a lot longer, their teeth are looking worn, yellow and in many cases have fillings and crowns. Once they hit their fifties and sixties years of age, their teeth are a direct reflection of the years of wear and mismatched dentistry. They look older than they feel because of the aging teeth and bite. Additionally, their faces are also negatively affected by the bad bite and worn down teeth. Their faces are slowly shortening and loosing support, their lips and thinning and the wrinkles become exaggerated. The aging face of the baby boomers is a direct result of their teeth and bite, this makes them the perfect candidate for full mouth reconstruction.
The Aging Face and Full Mouth Reconstruction
The aging face is seldom addressed with a full mouth reconstruction. Everything is about the smile and we are not smiling all of the time. In fact, we are smiling only about 5% of the time so the face is still older looking and still collapsed from years of tooth wear. Most full mouth reconstructions try to improve the jaw position functionally by pushing the jaw back into centric occlusion. All of the teeth are capped or crowned with porcelain crowns and if the patient is smiling, they look better. This is far short of the possible results that use the technical skills of a Face Lift Dentist ®. Today, the Face Lift Dentist ® can completely rebuild the bite, support the lips and cheeks, smooth out facial wrinkles, lengthen the face and improve the position of the chin. The patient can reverse years of aging and improve their health and achieve cosmetic results that surpass the skills of the typical “cosmetic dentist”.
Full Mouth Reconstruction – the Old Way
The best that dentistry had to offer was the full mouth reconstruction. Every tooth had to be ground down or capped, even if the teeth were structurally sound. Some dentists would crown some teeth and put porcelain veneers on other teeth but that greatly limits the treatment to the bite. The philosophy of full mouth reconstruction was called “centric relation”. The idea was to create the best possible position for everyone and the basis of the full mouth reconstruction was to push the jaw back towards the ears and build a bite that was determined to be in “centric relation”. Now with the “centric relation” theory, every dentist could conceivably treat patients because everyone had to have their jaw pushed back to the “rear most upper most position. The old way of full mouth reconstruction dentistry did not work on everyone and the ageing face was ignored most of the time. Face Lift Dentistry ® takes the patient care to another level.
Non-Invasive Full Mouth Reconstruction – Not The Best But a Little Better
Now some dentists were finally able to do a full mouth reconstruction with non-invasive dentistry but there were too many failures because the bonding method used was not strong enough. Additionally, these dentists were still trying to make every patient fit into the “centric relation” bite method, by pushing the jaw back, which has its limitations.
Porcelain Veneers Full Mouth Reconstruction – Not The Best
Some types of Porcelain veneers require a lot of grinding down to the natural tooth structure. Dentists are trying to do non-invasive dentistry but if the porcelain veneers require damaging the natural tooth structure, the patient is sacrificing their dental health in order to get a full mouth reconstruction or just a smile that would be less invasive than doing all porcelain crowns. Today, the Face Lift Dentist ® can develop the bite with non-invasive porcelain veneers that actually cover the biting surface of the tooth, not just the front surface. The entire face, bite, TMJ and all of the cosmetic components as lips support, cheek support and facial lengthening and jaw repositioning can be addressed, non-invasively by the Face Lift Dentist ®.
This is a term utilized to help the dentist find the jaw position when treating a patient with TMJ problems. Some dentists will use an electronic device as the J5 Myomonitor to help them find centric relation and these devices may be helpful. Neuromuscular dentistry is designed to help the dentist find centric relation and uses an electronic device that reads the muscles to locate the position of the jaw in order to complete the full mouth reconstruction. Another methodology utilized by Dr. Sam Muslin is Complex Motion Tomography. He actually can see what he is doing, rather than rely on an electronic device that reads only some of the musculature to tell the dentist the location of the bite. Complex Motion Tomography allows the Face Lift Dentist ® to visually see the actual jaw position at ultra low levels of radiation. He has developed a technique that is highly predictable as many of his patients fly in from other states or countries and require little to no additional care after being treated by his trademarked Face Lift Dentistry ®. Dr. Muslin has over 30 years of successful and well-documented results that are presented in his websites. All of the photos are untouched and unaltered and all photos are actual patients treated by Dr. Muslin. None of the patients were paid or reimbursed in any way. They have given him permission to show the incredible results in order to help other patients pick the best dentist for their care. Dr. Muslin deeply appreciates their consideration.
