The wording, anti-aging cosmetic dentistry can be misleading because there are big health benefits to anti-aging dentistry.
The aging baby boomers between the ages of 44 and 70 can have the benefits of treatment that was never available before. These patients can take advantage of vertical dimensional improvements that lengthen and support the faces of these patients.
Permanent anti-aging facial support along with occlusal plane improvements can give these patients the tooth display of a 20-year-old person. Baby boomer anti-aging dentistry can remove years of aging by having the upper teeth appear very similar to a much younger person. These patients will reverse the aging condition of their teeth and their faces.
Most anti-aging dentists will grind down healthy teeth for cosmetic purposes. Why grind down your teeth for porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers when there is treatment available that can also improve your bite without grinding down any healthy teeth?
This patient had crooked teeth on the lower and worn down and chipped upper teeth. He is a great looking Los Angeles man, professional in every way, but needed cosmetic dentistry to give him the polished healthy professional look. Cosmetic dentistry is also healthy dentistry in many ways.
Just because it is referred to as cosmetic dentistry, a patient may think that it is only cosmetic in nature. In this patient's case, the cosmetic benefit was not the main benefit. His dental health, his bite reconstruction and his gum infection were treated successfully, which is the main benefit to Anti-aging Dentistry.
Most patients already have a dentist but want to find one that can handle a more advanced level of care. This patient had good teeth, nothing hurt and he is chewing fine but his teeth are worn down, yellow and crooked. Additionally, he had another crown break that his existing dentist completed and he knew a change was necessary. He began his search for the best cosmetic and health care dentist possible. He found a unique treatment approach that reverses the effects of the aging process that is actually good for his health. The treatment was completed over 8 years ago without one single problem. He feels his best, he looks his best and everyone he meets gets a positive impression.
Patients can look and feel years younger with improved facial dimensions with vertical dimension improvements in their bite and occlusal plane improvements in the display of the teeth. Face Lift Dentistry® treatment by Dr. Sam Muslin has the ultimate benefit to age reversing dental care because it optimizes the benefits of a full mouth reconstruction beyond the typical vertical dimensional changes, occlusal plane changes and centric relation goals.
When a patient is considering cosmetic dentistry generally they have old crowns and old fillings that need to be replaced. The beauty of treating all of the teeth at one time is that the color and tooth size can be enhanced significantly better than "one tooth at a time" dentistry.
Additionally, when all of the upper teeth are treated together the bite can be corrected while all of the tooth decay and gum infection is simultaneously treated for the health benefits. The baby boomer age reversal technology with enhanced complex motion tomography imaging gives the dentist an unusual advantage over just guessing the vertical dimensional changes being attempted.
This patient wanted straight white teeth but he also wanted to look younger and preserve his natural tooth structure. With non-invasive anti-aging dental health care, he was able to improve his health, his appearance and reverse the aging process.
Patients experience better health and lower jaw and TMJ comfort because there is less jaw strain with the newly reconstructed bite. Porcelain crowns done in harmony with the function of the TMJ can guide the jaw into its new position. This patient was treated with the best possible dental care and even though cosmetic dentistry was part of the treatment, most of his treatment had significant health benefits. The esthetic rehabilitative dentistry available today can also be detrimental to the patient’s health if the dentist grinds down healthy teeth unnecessarily. Esthetic rehabilitative dentistry must be non-invasive dentistry with anti-aging benefits that turn back the clock for the aging baby boomers.
The patient that has crooked teeth and worn teeth also has a bite that is less than optimal. Cosmetic dentistry combined with bite reconstruction dentistry can achieve a three-dimensional level of health. The jaw is three dimensionally repositioned during the reconstruction of the bite while at the same time the length; angles and shapes of the teeth are idealized for the patient. Creating a new vertical dimension, occlusal plane and centric relation is the goal of the traditional full mouth reconstruction that is not the best anti-aging dental care possible. The best anti-aging care is requires years of experience with facial types and speaking characteristics.
Too many full mouth reconstructions have little anti-aging benefit because they did not find the ultimate vertical height to the bite with advanced dental technology available. High tech anti-aging dentistry is what is now called, Face Lift Dentistry®. It is the absolute best possible teeth developed in accordance with your skin tones, eye color, facial length, lips and jaw size. It is the best possible bite and jaw position for the health of the TMJ (a neuromuscular approach) and maximum health to the gums.
His treatment was completed by the founder of Face Lift Dentistry®, Sam Muslin DDS, a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, of Santa Monica California. He was awarded LA’s Best Cosmetic Dentist for 2012 for his well-documented anti-aging before and after photos of his patients.
Lower jaws that have worn down teeth are jaws that are not in their best position. Lower jaws that are not in the best position have bad bites and TMJ dysfunction. Three-dimensional dentistry repositions the jaw in the most comfortable position without surgery. The benefits of anti-aging dentistry are to reverse the tooth wear from clenching and grinding.
