This patient from Brentwood, California, had already worn braces for years. He no longer was willing to wear braces but he was desperate to have his malocclusion fixed. So with orthodontic treatment out of the question, this patient researched the option of neuromuscular treatment combined with cosmetic dentistry. He discovered the JawTrac® Ideal Jaw Position Technology with VENLAY® Restorations, which can produce the ultimate care.
Face Lift Dentistry® uses the best that modern day high tech dentistry has to offer, combined with the artistic skills of a highly trained dentist to produce the maximum care available for every patient today. By using JawTrac® Alignment and VENLAY® Restorations, your entire face, lips, gums, teeth, speech and TMJ function are combined and coordinated to the maximum health, comfort and benefit, individialy crafted for each patient. Braces or Clear Aligners cannot accomplish this level of results.
Only Face Lift Dentistry® can change the shape of your face. Plastic Surgery or the Plastic Surgery Face Lift cannot change the shape of your face or reposition your lower jaw to produce the maximum health and cosmetic benefits.
He has a "deep over-bite" and is grinding his teeth (bruxism). You can see the sides of his face have large bulging masseter muscles which may lead to TMJ trouble in the future. This particular patient said that after treatment, his jaw or TMJ (tempro mandibular joint) felt much more comfortable and he did not know that his jaw was bothering him before occlusal (bite) correction. Headaches are the most common symptom of TMJ as well as joint noise, popping, or TMJ clicking.
Dr. Sam Muslin, during his initial exam, noted that the masseter muscles and temporalis muscles were being over worked and that the patient has some TMJ issues. Neuromuscular dentistry is the care of TMJ problems but this treatment also included functional cosmetic and bite reconstruction dental work, all combined in a single treatment.
This treatment changes the entire shape of your face. The patient's face is now physically longer. Look at the before and after photos, the lower face is now in better proportion with the upper face in the after picture. The smile is also wider and more cosmetically balanced with his lips and facial width. The dark triangles in the before picture at the corners of his mouth are eliminated. After correcting his bite, his lips are better supported and the amount of tooth grinding is reduced. This patient's face in now functionally and cosmetically balanced.
