She had a deep overbite that pushed her jaw back and caused her to age prematurely. She had jaw pain and sleeping problems and wore an appliance to open her airways to help her sleep better. After treatment, her overbite is corrected, she is breathing and sleeping better, her pain has been relieved, plus she has a much younger face with permanent facial support.
The airway is vital to everyone because it affects how well we sleep, our moods, and our total body health. The importance of a proper airway means we can reverse the effects of aging and improve our physical health, correct the bite, and at the same time, reverse the effects of aging.
Dr. Muslin developed JawTrac® because all of the other choices were so invasive and painful. He will make the removable JawTrac® appliance that will simulate his Face Lift Dentistry® Method so his patients can see the transformation of their faces. However, it gets even better, because his patients can take JawTrac® home to test how it feels. Many of his International patients fly in for about 4 days to get JawTrac® testing and then start their treatment during that trip.
Most patients never had the best possible jaw position because they never had teeth that were the right size, in the right place and had the right angles along with a bite that harmonized with their anatomy. This patient got a much better airway using the Face Lift Dentistry® bite correction method that builds the ideal jaw position and gives teeth that are sized, proportioned, and positioned to her anatomy.
She already has veneers which did nothing to improve her airway. Veneers did nothing to improve her bite, and the porcelain veneers did nothing to improve her jaw position.
There are many definitions of bite correction. A cosmetic dentist could place ten porcelain veneers on the upper teeth and declare your bite was corrected when the airway is the same; you still have a deep overbite and TMJ pain. The Face Lift Dentistry® method is designed to give the patient the best possible airway by correcting the deep overbite using JawTrac® and VENLAY® Restorations.
Veneers can't correct a deep overbite; it may worsen the problems. Watch and hear this patient talk about her journey from veneers to true bite correction with VENLAY® Restorations.
To get a proper airway non-surgically, the jaw position and jaw joints need to function in harmony. If the jaw is pushed back by a deep overbite, the airway size is reduced in most patients. They don't sleep as well; they wake up more often and can be tired and grumpy in the morning. Patients can get a better airway non-surgically that also can improve sleep ability.
When the jaw is pushed back by the overbite, the chin looks too small, the shape of the face is too short, and various degrees of facial collapse occurs. These patients usually are physically compromised with a deep overbite in multiple ways. With this method corrects an overbite, the jaw moves forward and downward. This natural movement opens up the airway, and the miracle of this method is that it does not require grinding down any of the healthy teeth using VENLAY® Restorations.
For those patients that want the incredible smile, a face that is within normal proportions, a chin that appears stronger and a comfortable bite, this is the method for you. The work is designed to maximize the patient from every angle within their biological framework. It helps patient's "be the person they were always meant to be" through this customized bite optimization method.
