When she was younger, an orthodontist recommended braces to straighten her teeth and extracted 4 bicuspid teeth, which used to be routine in those days. The braces and the headgear were supposed to close up spaces between her teeth, and fix her overbite. Years later, she noticed excessive clenching and grinding with her teeth moving and opted to see a functional orthodontist for treatment.
For the next 9-years, she was subjected to an assortment of orthodontic and orthopedic functional appliances to expand her pallet, another to help her chew, and another appliance to fill in the gaps between her teeth. The results ended up creating a posterior open bite and she because physically and functionally compromised. She lost confidence smiling and could no longer bite her teeth together, could not chew and lacked speech clarity. Her back teeth on her right side did not touch at all. She was ready to find a solution once and for all. The solution turned out to be JawTrac® Alignment technology and VENLAY® bite restoration with the Face Lift Dentistry® method.
After nine years of functional appliances, braces, orthodontics and orthodpedices, bicuspid extraction, and removable orthotic appliances, the patient said, “I’m desperate to find a solution and be done with all of it.” Sometimes traditional dentistry can be very time consuming, very expensive, painful, and frustrating. Fortunately, she had the courage to stop the madness, leave those dentists and seek someone that did orthodontics with braces and functional orthopedic orthotics for nearly 20 years and understood how to fix a 9-year orthodontic failure in just a couple of weeks using his exclusive Face Lift Dentistry® Method. The name may sound like it is a cosmetic procedure, but in reality, it is health care on a highly advanced level that does far more than we ever believed was possible with dentistry.
Treatment that lasts years can be a nightmare and very frustrating. Sometimes with the best of intentions, the treating dentist may have exceeded their level of skill. When you see this patient’s video and realize how many appliances she had to wear, she was very gracious about it. She wore a palatal expander that is also called a Bionator, a dental flipper, retainers, and a chewing appliance, that she patiently endured for years during treatment. She wanted all of this to end. She found the right dentist on the Internet. She lived in Colorado and got on a plane to Santa Monica to put an end to her orthodontic nightmare. The best way for you to get answers is to fly in so Dr. Muslin can see you, measure, and do his analysis. You can also do the next phase after the consultation if you decide to move forward. This cannot be done by skype.
We realize that the name, Face Lift Dentistry® Method sounds like it is only about cosmetics. However, this method is 100% healthcare because it is comprehensive treatment. Patients fly in from all over the world to receive the health care benefits of this method because the design of your bite is the gateway to better health. A patient flew in from Hawaii to avoid letting a neuromuscular dentist from drilling down her teeth. Another got headaches every day and was seeking headache pain relief after her previous dentists told her jaw surgery was her only choice of care. One flew in from Ukraine to avoid jaw surgery, for an underbite and crossbite, which every dentist she saw said it was her only choice of treatment. Another had insomnia, breathing problems, jaw pain, and digestive problems at the age of 70 and finished with pain relieve, sleeping better and feeling and looking younger.
Today, patients want results and don’t want it to take many months or years. We don’t want it to hurt, and we don’t want to compromise our health over the long term for a patchwork dental solutions that drill down healthy teeth. Patchwork dentistry is what smile dentistry is about as there is no real health care benefit, as it is just cosmetic. Braces cannot do all of the things that this method can do. Grinding down all of your healthy teeth is totally unnecessary, and jaw surgery can be dangerous. This patient has speaking problems, confidence lost, for the few teeth that touch, she is grinding and clenching, and now it is all over. She feels great, looks even greater, and is ready to live an exciting life. We sincerely thank her for permitting Dr. Sam Muslin to show the quality of his work, and she did it for your benefit.
Most of us do not have the highest level of coordination between our teeth, bite and jaw position. Instead we use a lot of energy to physically accommodate to this compromised jaw position. We use a lot of energy doing it, we don’t sleep as well and there is tension and stress in the head and neck area. We are silently suffering. In the past, there was not a non-invasive way to get the jaw position optimized so we settled for compromised function. However, we are living decades longer than ever before and non-invasive “optimized functionality” is now a reality. We no longer have to settle because we can have it all. Functionality combined with incredible cosmetic benefits that are “done in a month” for most people.
All of the previously mentioned ailments and many more are treated by “optimizing” your lower jaw position using the remarkable JawTrac® Technology that is part of the Face Lift Dentistry® Method. It is all about coordinating the functionality of your anatomical structures without harming you surgically, and it does not cut away your teeth. It is non-invasive, which is why it is done very quickly with the exclusive VENLAY® Bite Restorations. Face Lift Dentistry® is a new level of healthcare that “optimizes” how your entire face and jawline function. The cosmetic benefits and the cost of this method are clearly above and beyond smile dentistry and porcelain veneers.
Improving the function of your bite design, jaw postion and coordinating with the temporomandibular joints has benefits as better facial profiles, improved sleeping, breathing, jaw pain relief, chewing more effectively, reverses short square faces typical of seniors, speaking clearly, headache relief, with clincking and popping and reversing the impact of aging. Instead of just giving you a little better veneer smile with no health benefits, VENLAY® improves your health and gives you the smile that improves the shape of your face. It can change your life.
