In most cases, jaw correction surgery (orthognathic surgery) is not the only option, irrespective of what you've been told. This proven non-surgical and non-invasive treatment can deliver results in 8-days that are above and beyond what is possible with jaw surgery for some patients, with no downtime, no cutting down teeth, and mostly without even a shot.
Not only do we help patients avoid orthognathic surgery and orthodontics with what we feel is a superior solution, but we also have successfully treated patients who already had jaw surgery that failed either cosmetically or functionally.
Face Lift Dentistry® offers the ultimate alternative to corrective jaw surgery because it is a comprehensive method helping you achieve results without going under the knife. Before you schedule a date for surgery, consider this alternative to jaw surgery and braces. Most of the time, this treatment can be completed in two 4-day visits within a month.
Face Lift Dentistry® transforms the bite for a better jaw position, whereas jaw realignment surgery alters the jaw for a better bite position. The Face Lift Dentistry® Method leverages dental healthcare and has aesthetic advantages beyond porcelain veneers that optimize both cosmetic goals and jaw functionality. Patients benefit from a comprehensive approach that can create results not available from other treatments like jaw surgery, braces, clear aligners, porcelain crowns, or porcelain veneers. We see patients that had "patchwork" type treatment like aligners, surgery, braces and/or veneers that never reached the optimized level of care that Face Lift Dentistry® strives to achieve.
The Face Lift Dentistry® treatment methodology relies on two basic principles:
Most orthodontists and dentists are taught that braces and jaw surgery are the only available methods for treating conditions like TMJ issues, misaligned jaws, crossbites, open bites, overbites, and underbites.
If you talk to a traditional dentist or orthodontist, they will offer treatments such as orthotic appliances, night guards, aligners, braces, porcelain crowns, jaw surgery, veneers, or full mouth reconstructions. Unfortunately, these treatments, from our experience, have a much higher failure rate, take a very long time, and can be painful and can be highly invasive. Patients undergo multiple treatments, with dismal results after the second or third attempt. We have seen a patient that wore braces for 11 years and just could not take it any longer and patients with a mouth full of porcelain crowns and veneers that are making them crazy. At this point, after being told they now needed jaw surgery, patients are looking for an alternative to jaw surgery.
When they find Face Lift Dentistry®, and can see the patients that are happy with their results on one of the worlds largest displays of documented before and after treatment videos, they have hope that this treatment will soon become one of the mainstream standards of care, with dentists and orthodontists suggesting it as a proven alternative to jaw surgery and braces.
Non Invasive Treatment: Traditional jaw surgery cuts your jaws to improve the bite. Other invasive methods drill down healthy teeth, which usually permanently compromise healthy teeth. Face Lift Dentistry® provides an option to avoid these invasive techniques through a non-invasive treatment method.
Faster Treatment Time: Since you don't have braces, aligners, or healing time from surgery, this treatment is completed much faster and is much safer compared to other treatment options. Most patients are done with their treatments in about a month.
Proven Results that are Tested: You don't really know how your face will change after jaw surgery, so there is a potential risk that besides surgical failures, the cosmetics might not turn out in the way you were anticipating. On the other hand, Face Lift Dentistry® is more predictable because we always test before we treat. This testing increases the likelihood of a successful outcome because you will see the changes to your face during the JawTrac® jaw position testing phase.
Getting Your Maximum Genetic Potential: All of us have a maximum genetic potential, but most of us have never experienced it. Imagine having the right size teeth with the best possible angle and shape that augment your bone structure and facial anatomy. Then imagine having those teeth designed to idealize your facial proportions, jaw position, facial profile and also coordinate functionally with your jaw joints or TMJ, which help you physically feel better. Each patient can achieve their ideal JawTrac® jaw position using this unique technology that is combined with a doctor that has over 40 years of experience with this level of health care. We call this Getting Optimized.
Can jaw surgery go wrong? Before you rush into a recommended corrective jaw surgery (also known as orthognathic surgery), it’s important to understand the potential risks of this treatment. Here are a few of the most common disadvantages that can occur after jaw surgery:
As you learn more about how Face Lift Dentistry® works, it's easy to see that a variety of orthodontic and dental conditions can be treated with this method. Here are some highlights showing practical applications using this treatment method:
When you need to improve jaw alignment and jaw positioning, it's essential to learn about treatment options before choosing the treatment that a dentist may have recommended. Education is empowerment, giving you a complete understanding of your choices, treatment timelines, and the long-term results you can expect.
Here is an overview to help you compare traditional orthodontics, jawline surgery (orthognathic surgery), and Face Lift Dentistry®:
If you decide to move forward with Face Lift Dentistry®, the treatment includes several phases to achieve the desired results:
It's no surprise that Face Lift Dentistry® is the option most people choose when comparing this treatment with other solutions like surgery and/or lengthy orthodontics or full mouth restorations that drill down your healthy teeth. Most of our patients have already had clear aligners, braces and/or jaw surgery, porcelain veneers, or full mouth porcelain crowns that failed. Dr. Muslin has extensive experience in all phases of dentistry, is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, and has recommended jaw surgery to just a few patients.
