Question: Overbite correction without braces or surgery seems too good to be true, especially when you claim it can be done in less than 2 weeks. Yet the before after pictures on your website seems so convincing. Please describe the ideal candidate for a successful outcome.
- Skeletal Overbite or Dental Overbite
- Is this a cosmetic camouflage or permanent overbite correction
Dr. Muslin Answers: Thank you for saying “overbite correction without braces or surgery seems to good to be true, especially when you claim it can be done in less than 2 weeks“. I also appreciate your comment when you say, “the before and after pictures on your website seems so convincing“.
In my opinion, the potential advantages of the treatment can easily surpass other treatments with far less risk. Most skeletal overbites and dental overbites can be treated remarkably fast and the results (as you can see on my website) are “too good to be true” but are actually true.
Some of these patients were treated more than 20 years ago.
This is not a cosmetic camouflage as it is an actual overbite correction. The treatment involves a three dimensional jaw positioning that is painlessly achieved and is biologically harmonious to the patient’s bite.
The patient’s profile can be dramatically improved with a more prominent chin position. This treatment has great potential because the patient’s teeth get a new protective layer of porcelain over their existing teeth without grinding down healthy tooth structure.
The color and shapes of the teeth can be greatly enhanced, which is not possible with surgery and braces. The results can be tested in advance which is also not possible with surgery and braces.
The negative part is that it is expensive and the positive part is that patients have had their entire mouth successfully treated in as little as one week.
It is hard to believe but the potential benefits to the patient are a transformation in health and appearance.
