The patient could not speak clearly, was ashamed of his appearance so much that he tried to move his jaw in a way that did not make him look unappealing. Chewing, jaw issues, appearance, enunciating and speaking with clarity compromised the quality of his life. All these problems related to his underbite were reversed in just two weeks, without jaw surgery or braces.
The only reason your face looks like it does is that your underbite guides your lower jaw into a bad position making your chin look larger than reality and your facial profile look less than optimal.
A bite can be optimized to move the jaw into an ideal position that improves the facial profile and the size appearance of the chin by using specific jaw imaging technology, and the exclusive VENLAY® Restorations that were created specifically for the Face Lift Dentistry bite correction method.
Compare his slurry speech and his physical appearance while he talks in the video before he was treated. He explains his problems and you will see and hear the results taken one hour after the VENLAY® Restorations were bonded using Dr. Muslin’s unique method.
Patients with underbites have a problem with larger looking chins because the chin is guided forward away from the patient’s ears making their chin look much larger than it really is in reality. Their chin is really smaller than it looks so constructing a bite that is built to the patient’s facial features so the bite guides the jaw into it’s proper position the facial profile is improved and so is the size of the chin.
Face Lift Dentistry® is about idealizing the patient’s natural facial features by correcting the bite so it will guide the jaw into a healthy position for the first time in the patient’s life.
Nothing works for everyone, but with this method, Dr. Muslin has been more successful than with any other method. He is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry with means he has taken far more continuing education that is certified by the Academy than most dentists. This method works well because he can see what is happening with the jaw and have imaging that can locate the ideal position. Then he tests this new position with a removable “test appliance” so he and the patient know in advance that the patient finds the new jaw position to be more comfortable. Then and only then does Dr. Muslin build the bite for the patient.
He spent many hours in speech therapy that did not help him until his underbite was non-surgically corrected. Patients cannot speak clearly if they do not have the right structure to their teeth, jaw, and bite.
Porcelain veneers are only cosmetic camouflage that helps the patient look better from the front view and not from the profile view. Veneers do not correct the patient's bite.
All of these photos on this website are untouched and unaltered and Dr. Muslin humbly thanks all of the patients that have given written permission to show the results of their treatment. These patients wanted to help other people to make wiser choices.
