Failed Jaw Surgery: What Are Your Options?

Corrective Orthognathic Surgery Does Not Always Work

Treating Patients in Santa Monica, CA from All Over the United States and the World

What to Do after Jaw Surgery Fails?

Many patients assume that if they get corrective jaw surgery, everything will work. As a result, they may suffer from the consequences of this painful, invasive, unpredictabel method as this patient did. The cost of orthognathic surgery is expensive in terms of time and loss of work or school. This patient lost over six months of work, and the jaw surgery failed. After jaw surgery, you could not see his teeth. He still had an underbite, suffered from the whole experience, got daily headaches, could not speak clearly, could not see his teeth when he talks, and remained physically, mentally, and cosmetically compromised.

This patient had corrective jaw surgery done which left him very disappointed. To make matters worse, he was told by the specialists that the only way to correct his underbite after jaw surgery failed would be a second jaw surgery.

The Safer Solution for Most Corrective Jaw Surgery Patients

The safer solution to jaw surgery only takes two visits that last four days each that are separated by three weeks. It takes three weeks for Dr. Muslin to design your VENLAY® Bite Restorations. The Face Lift Dentistry® method is designed to take bite correction to a whole new level. This method optimizes the patient's jaw position using JawTrac® to locate the natural jaw position that you should have rather than leave you with the jaw position you do have. Dr. Muslin found that when a patient has an underbite, the jaw actually slides forward, which makes the lower jaw look larger than it really is. By using JawTrac®, the jaw moves to a natural position by itself without force or pain to improve your jawline and facial profile. VENLAY® Restorations are used to keep the jawline and profile in this new position.

Orthognathic Surgery Is Not Your Only Option

The reason that a dentist would say you have to have jaw surgery is that it is the way dentists are trained. To most of the dental world, orthognathic surgery is the only way to correct an underbite, and braces or aligners are also required. This patient will tell you that "this is obviously not true,” there is an incredible alternative to jaw surgery. The jaw surgery idea is to surgically improve the shapes of your jaws. However, many years ago, Dr. Sam Muslin realized the underbites could be corrected without jaw surgery, and the method has benefits that jaw surgery cannot offer.

Porcelain veneers cannot correct underbites. Porcelain crowns cut down your healthy teeth causing many new potential painful problems. Jaw Surgery is painful, risky, and can be unpredictable.

The Face Lift Dentistry® method is all about optimizing you from every angle and every expression by improving the shapes of your teeth with a porcelain layer that can totally transform your life physically, mentally, and cosmetically in just two visits. These brief visits are about four days each for most patients. Welcome to the Face Lift Dentistry® method. It can change your life.
