We often see patients with underbites which could not be treated with braces or clear aligners. Many patients even went through two phases of orthodontic treatment and still had an undesired bite and chin position. This patient, a young individual going through his third year of medical school has been a victim himself. He suffered trying to fix his uneven bite twice with braces! Not once did it help him.
He searched for a solution without braces or surgery and found our website. He was intrigued by the idea of fully non-invasive and pain-free underbite treatment. After going through our work-up process and being able to test out his new simulated bite position for a day, he decided to commit to Dr. Muslin’s VENLAY® Underbite Restoration treatment.
His underbite and dominant upper lip made him self conscious. His uneven bite and misaligned jaw caused premature wear and chipped teeth. Braces did not solve his problems and jaw surgery was the recommended next step.
Underbite optimization using the Face Lift Dentistry® Method is a true structural underbite correction. It goes one step further by also optimizing the TMJ functionality. It has aesthetic benefits beyond porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry that have been called, “too good to be true.” It is designed to create the ultimate shape to the patients face without surgery, without braces and without drilling away healthy teeth.
Patients with underbites can have a normal facial profile and a reversal of the protrusion jawline and dominant upper lip. Our patients have a much-improved shape to their faces with JawTrac® and VENLAY® Bite Restorations. The magic to this method is locating the ultimate jaw position using JawTrac®. With JawTrac®, patients get to see their new faces on the very first consultation visit. This is not possible with jaw surgery or clear aligners or braces.
This young adult male, going through his third year of medical school, has been a victim of failed orthodontic treatment with braces himself. He suffered trying to fix his under bite twice with braces! Not once did it help him and now the specialists were recommending jaw surgery and braces again. As a medical student, he knew the risks of jaw surgery were high. He wondered if there was anyone out there that could correct under bites without jaw surgery.
He searched for an alternative underbite solution, and gladly he found our office. The website was offering him pain-free, fully non-invasive and non-surgical bite correction treatment that made him excited and eager to try it out. His uncle is a “top quality dentist that I highly respect” so he asked his uncle to do some research on Dr. Sam Muslin and his method. A week later, his uncle recommended that Michael “get on a plane” and he described Dr. Muslin as the “real deal”.
On the day of try-in, three weeks later, he was able to visually see not only a more refined bite, but also a full re-shaping of his teeth. He was overwhelmed by the drastic change stating “I can’t believe it, they’re amazing!” After his approval, Dr. Muslin being a perfectionist, looked not once, not twice, but multiple times to find any flaws that needed an extra boost of refining. Perfection is key! He told the patient he could improve the results and asked the patients permission to do more refinement, which was granted.
After going through the work up process and experiencing his new simulated bite position, the patient could see the new shape to his face and facial profile. He returned the next day to start with Dr. Muslin’s Face Lift Dentistry® Method. As his teeth were healthy it only took a couple of hours to complete the first phase of the treatment. None of his healthy teeth were drilled down so no shots, no surgery and no pain. The patient flew back home as it typically takes three weeks to make the individual VENLAY® Restorations for each of his teeth.
We bonded all 28 VENLAY® Restorations in as little as 2-3 hours to correct his underbite to the proper position that braces did NOT fulfill for him after years of treatment. Now, this patient can finish his last year of medical school with a fixed bite and more masculine look providing him the confidence to embrace his new smile.
After his approval, Dr. Muslin being the ultimate professional, looked not once, not twice, but multiple times to find any flaws that needed an extra boost or refining. Even though the patient loved the results, Dr. Muslin said, “I can beat this result”. The patient said, “I love it the way it is but I trust you and if you say you can beat it, go ahead and do your thing”.
Closing words from Dr. Muslin’s Dental Assistant: “After working many years in an orthodontic dental office, it has been a pleasure to see results that are incredible and patients that are thrilled in just a few weeks. I’m shocked myself. Dr. Muslin’s goal is to maximize a patient’s natural biologic potential without harming the patient and without the risk of jaw surgery. He undoubtedly proved this!”
