Many adults are being told that the only alternative to open bite problems, underbites and overbites is jaw surgery (sometimes for a second time) and braces (sometimes for the second or third time), when there is an alternative that is faster, safer and more predictable in most cases.
The treatment involves improving the patient’s bite position on the first visit, which immediately gave the patient TMJ comfort. No shots or anesthetic is necessary for this procedure and it takes less than an hour. On the second visit, all of the old fillings were replaced along with old crowns and Dr. Muslin designed her new teeth, bite and jaw position. Weeks later, the porcelain was constructed and the treatment was completed.
This patient developed a severe open bite problem after jaw surgery. The purpose of the jaw surgery was for TMJ problems but the side affect of the jaw surgery caused an open bite and continued TMJ pain.
She was told that in order to correct the open bite caused by the first jaw surgery, she would need another jaw surgery and a couple of years of braces to surgically correct her open bite. There would be significant risks and the results are not as predicable as the alternative to jaw surgery treatment. She did not want another jaw surgery and she did not want braces again and she did not want to miss work to get the treatment. The solution came when found this website in the most unusual way.
This treatment is all about genuine health care and not just cosmetic dentistry. The treatment goals of idealizing the jaw position and developing a bite within biological limits is the definition of the Face Lift Dentistry® method. Don’t confuse Anti-Aging Face Lift Dentistry® with anti-aging dentistry offered by cosmetic dentists because any dentist can call themselves an anti-aging dentist because there is no definition. Any dental treatment can be called anti-aging dentistry, which holds very little value.
The new porcelain was placed on her teeth without anesthetic so the patient could see the results in her mouth before the porcelain is bonded. Dr. Muslin’s patients can see the work for themselves and can make changes to the work such as making the teeth a little darker or shorter or longer or whiter. Being able to see the results and make changes is the single greatest advantage to this method because the patients are in control of the cosmetic results.
She is speaking clearly, feeling healthy, has greatly reduced her TMJ problems and has beautiful straight white teeth.
Dr. Muslin sincerely thanks this patient for allowing him to show the results of his work. She is deeply appreciated.
