This patient is a great example of someone seeking a way to live comfortably and healthy without having to go through the pain and agony of jaw surgery to have his open bite and underbite corrected. At the young age of 22, he could not properly close his mouth, speak, bite, or chew. Only two of his teeth (the back molars) would make contact as he also suffered from a severe underbite. He was unable to speak clearly because his front teeth did not come together under any circumstances. He talked with this tongue instead of his teeth, which made him sound like a child.
Fortunately, he and his father found our office online (www.faceliftdentistry.com) while searching for any alternative treatment after 8 years of unsuccessful braces which were to be followed by jaw surgery. Together they were able to make a trip to Santa Monica, all the way from Chicago, in the interest of solving his disabling health problem.
In just 3 visits with no shots or additional pain, he was able to eat a sandwich properly for the first time in his life! The bottom line is this: The shape of your face, the way you speak, and the functionality of your jaw are all determined first by your bite, which can often be corrected with non-invasive VENLAY® restorations. This is what Face Lift Dentistry® is all about!
