The concept was developed many years ago that dentistry has the ability to have a pronounced effect on the shape of the patient’s face has not been well understood. The idea that dentistry could also improve the patient’s profile and at the same time correct the bite makes this treatment good for your health with cosmetic benefits.
When a patient loses all of their teeth, they also lose facial support. The face literally begins to “cave in.” People experience facial collapse because they lost their teeth and the jawbone shrunk as a result. These patients look older and feel older because their jawbone shrinks slowly after the teeth are removed.
Dr. Muslin’s first Face Lift Denture® was in 1977 when he treated a young woman with dentures that made her look twice her age. The new dentures supported her face and reversed years of aging in just a matter of a couple of weeks.
Besides being able to chew, dentures also support the soft tissue of the face and establish a jaw position to allow the patient to function more effectively. But, the ability to find the ideal jaw position has been the problem until the development of the Face lift Dentistry® method. This method uses a specific technology and method that allows the dentist to see what he is doing rather than just guess.
These dentists are making a greater effort to cosmetically improve the shape of their patient’s faces with the denture. This is not anything new as dentures have been supporting faces for a long time. However, Face Lift Dentures® are a specific effort to help patients look younger by developing a better shape to the patient’s faces.
This is a term that any dentist can use to describe their services. Any dentist can call himself or herself a neuromuscular dentist. Patients search for these dentists not realizing that there is no definition to what a neuromuscular dentist does or uses with his or her treatment.
Any dentist can make neuromuscular dentures using any method they choose. It sounds valid, but no training is necessary to make neuromuscular dentures. Fortunately, most dentists are honest and ethical and are trying to make a denture that will fit and function normally.
This method is trademarked to protect and regulate the quality of the treatment and the meaning of the treatment. The Face Lift Dentistry® method is protected because advanced training is necessary and advanced equipment is required. There is a “patent pending” process and a specific method of treatment required. No other dentist can call themselves a Face Lift Dentist® without violating a Federal Trademark. Dr. Sam Muslin invented it, developed it, and defined it and the results this method are accurately displayed with the before and after photos of his work along with videos of the patients on his website. All of the photos are untouched and unaltered.
