The main purpose of a bite reconstruction is to remove all of the old dentistry and replace it along with attempting to find a comfortable bite for the patient. TMJ treatment may be necessary because patients that have bad bites commonly have TMJ problems. The main problem is that bite reconstructions vary widely between dental offices in terms of the methods, materials, technology and the skills of the dentist. The skills of the dentist also vary widely so it is imperative that the patient selects the best bite reconstruction dentist.
Too many patients’ select a full mouth reconstruction dentist based in the convenient location to their home. These same patients think that if he or she is a “nice dentist” then the nice dentist may also be a good bite correction dentist too. This is why so many patients get bite reconstructions done over again at great expense of time and money.
Bite reconstructions can create big health problems or they can be one of the most age prevention health care treatments available if it is combined with Face Lift Dentistry®. It is worth traveling long distances to get bite reconstruction done right the first time because patients are living longer and their teeth can only take so much abuse. This patient was treated about 12 years ago and is thriving with an extremely high level of health and comfort.
The best way to choose a bite reconstruction dentist is to see examples of their work and this is the purpose of this website. It is to show a wide variety of patients that were so happy with their results that they gave Dr. Muslin written permission to show their before and after faces to the world online.
The second purpose is to educate patients and dentists that dentists can achieve results far beyond their imaginations by treating the patients face with anti-aging dentistry. He wants to show his method of bite reconstruction that combines with his exclusive Face Lift Dentistry® treatment that reverses facial collapse.
Reversing facial collapse also removes years of aging improves the patients chin profile and lower jaw position without surgery. This form of neuromuscular dentistry is the future of dentistry.
The potential of reversing facial collapse with Face Lift Dentistry® is the result of over 30 years of bite correction experience that combines with over 20 years of orthodontic experience. He is uniquely educated with unprecedented hands on experience with a multitude of dental, facial and neuromuscular dental problems. He is uniquely educated and experienced.
His before and after photo gallery may be one of the largest documentations of successful facial collapse treatment by any bite reconstruction dentist today. Patients travel from all over the Untied States and from other counties to receive his aesthetic cosmetic dental health care. Recently, couples have flown in from other areas of the country to receive his exclusive facial optimization and anti-aging Face Lift Dentistry® treatment that is remarkably quick.
The number one reason was awarded the best cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles was because no other bite reconstruction dentist, cosmetic dentist nor aesthetic dentist has the clear and honest documentation to prove their expertise and their results. All of the photos on his websites are untouched and unaltered and the before and after photos match in expression, head position and size.
He had the before and after photo documentation to prove his experience and expertise rather than a photo standing next to a Hollywood Star. Don’t get fooled by the unmatched photos by other dentists because the reason the photos do not match is because the quality of the work is marginal at best. If the bite reconstruction dentist does not show you photos of their own patients, be very careful.
Also, be very careful because cosmetic dentists have been stealing photos from Dr. Muslin’s website from all over the country. He and his web designer have been highly successful catching their unethical behavior. Be very careful. Dr. Muslin deeply appreciates the patients that have honored him with permission to show the quality of his work and he sincerely thanks them.
He hopes that his work will inspire new patients to understand the anti-aging potential and his treatment for bite collapse.
Before we can treat the teeth or work on bite reconstruction we need to ensure that the patient has healthy gums. Vance has had years of dental neglect resulting in a continuous but painless infectious process known as periodontal disease or gum disease.
Gum disease is generally painless and the infection spreads into the gums and to the jaw bone. Periodontal disease is a slow moving infection which is the reason that there is generally no pain. Many patients wait until a great deal of permanent damage is done to their jaw bone before treatment. Gum disease is totally preventable with proper home care by the patient.
Vance has infected gums (gum disease) that does not hurt and is negatively affecting his overall health. The gum disease or periodontal disease has spread to his jaw bone and the entire process can also contribute to heart disease and other organ infections. Gum Disease affects the health of the entire body.
Treatment using ultrasonic scalars, hand scalars and sonic scalars along with dental lasers can successfully treat most gum infections and save or prolong the life of the patient’s teeth.
The new high tech gums disease medications as periostat (doxyclcline), arestin (minocycline hydrochloride), periochip (chlorhexidine in solid state which slowly melts over one week for a continuous bacterial kill) and Chlorhexidine mouth rinses are very effective in knocking down the gum disease infection, preparing the gums for the dental work and bite reconstruction.
The Crest Spin Pro toothbrush combined with a waterpik is very effective in cleaning and rinsing away the harmful bacteria present in gum disease.
The patient had permanently damaged his bite causing malocclusion from years of tooth bruxism and his facial support was collapsing. As a busy business owner, the patient did not take the time to treat his dental health and was in need of a complete bite reconstruction and even more advanced care, the Dental Face Lift®.
Bite correction can be an enormous benefit to the patient but unfortunately one of the biggest problems for Dr. Muslin is that he has been treating far more patients that received bad bite corrections. Bad bite corrections create problems and the best bite corrections solve the problems in remarkable ways.
Bite correction dentistry is done best by a highly experienced dentist. Dr. Muslin is highly trained as he has had over 20 years in orthodontic experience and over 30 years in bite correction and full mouth reconstructions. He was awarded on of the most prestigious awards in dentistry, as he is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry and was awarded by the International College of Dentists.
The patient had bad porcelain crowns with black lines at the gums. The old porcelain crowns had the black lines at the gums and were decaying under the margins of the crowns. Replacing old porcelain crowns is necessary in order to remove the decay and stop the gum disease around the crowns.
Replacing Porcelain crowns is also necessary as the older crowns can be made from non-precious metals that can be harmful to your health. They can contain toxic metals that can be harmful to the body so replacing porcelain crowns or replacing gold crowns is very important for the health of the patient.
All of his work is biologically compatible as he has tested his materials and is using a unique bonding method that allows his work to last. With his exclusive bonding method, the fit of the porcelain to the tooth is so perfect that the gums heal much faster.
Vance wanted treatment to be "efficient" which translated to "fast." His all of his upper teeth were treated in one visit. All of the old crowns were removed; all of the old amalgam filling and old composite fillings were removed along with all tooth decay.
Temporary crowns were placed and until the new high tech E-Max Crowns, Dr. Muslin fabricated Empress crowns, Da Vinci Crowns, Cerec Dental Crowns, or any other type of crown for his individual condition. Dr. Muslin is one of the few dentists that work on the ceramics personally.
Dr. Muslin's office concentrates on delivering comprehensive care for an entire arch in only two visits. The speed and efficiency of the dental team and organization of the dental lab technician allows this office to deliver the finest care at an amazing rate.
Most patients find the care to be much less traumatic if the dentist and his staff are quick and organized. Two weeks later the new porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers were bonded into place. This is not average cosmetic dentistry as Vance went one step farther. Vance said, "If we are going to do it, let's go all the way." Cosmetic Dentistry is only part of his treatment.
The Dental Face Lift® is based on bite reconstruction to lengthen the face. Vance now has a bite that is the best height for his personal characteristics. The overall impact of bite reconstruction is far greater than cosmetic dentistry traditionally can offer.
Deep overbites can be completely corrected in only 2 weeks per arch. The customized bite reconstruction treatment offers optimal facial support and customized to every patient characteristic. Face Lift Dentistry® is maximizing the patient in every dental dimension possible.
