A Patient’s Perspective

The Ultimate TMJ Treatment Option

In contrast to Neuromuscular TMJ Treatment, which depends on computer-assisted muscle tension readings which can be time-consuming with unpredictable outcomes, Face Lift Dentistry® with JawTrac® rapidly determines the ideal jaw position, which allows the patient to compare the current and proposed jaw positions before treatment starts.

Non-invasive TMJ Treatment Without Drilling

Face Lift Dentistry® is non-invasive and does not drill down your healthy teeth. This is a very important advantage as your healthy teeth stay intact. Once the dentist drills down your teeth, problems can become an issue with the neuromuscular method. Teeth can become sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Sometimes the teeth can become so painful that root canals become necessary. All these problems are avoidable with Dr. Muslin's method because the teeth get a new protective layer of porcelain called VENLAY® that makes your teeth less sensitive.

Neuromuscular treatment relies on a computer that reads the tension of your muscles for bite correction. Dr. Sam Muslin found that it took far too long to put electrodes on your face and have you open and close repeatedly, hoping the computer could help the dentist decide. This patient said one visit took all day and had to be repeated. She also said the benefits were too little to proceed with treatment. Dr. Muslin's method with JawTrac® locates the ideal jaw position quickly. The big advantage is a special imaging system that lets you see the jaw position with the bite you have vs. the JawTrac® jaw position. Dr. Muslin can see what he is doing rather than guess.

The most significant advantage is that Face Lift Dentistry® improves the shape of your face, jawline, and facial profile without drilling down your teeth, without jaw surgery, and especially without braces or aligners. This method is for those patients that want the best and can afford the best. It does what porcelain veneers, aligners, and braces cannot do. This is comprehensive health care with less risk, less treatment time, and higher predictability.
