Simply put, when your bottom front teeth overlap your upper front teeth, you have an underbite. Your underbite could be hereditary (skeletal) but may be the result of abnormal tooth formation and misaligned teeth. Whatever the reason, an underbite is bad for you and can lead to facial abnormalities and health problems. Learn more about underbites here.
Underbite problems can severly impact your health and aesthetic appearance if left untreated. We have highlighted common problems experienced by people with underbites.
When patients go to their regular dentists for advice on how to treat their underbites, they are generally given a single choice: orthodontic braces followed by jaw surgery followed again by orthodontic braces. Very few patients are offered a non-surgical solution simply because dental schools do not teach this. Before you choose, pay attention to the following:
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.
Throughout the years patients have been getting unresolved bite correctional treatments with braces. There’s been those who’ve even went through two phases of treatment and had no luck there either. 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, and gladly he found our office. Offering him pain-free, fully non-invasive treatment he was eager to try it out. After going through our work up process and being able to test out his new stimulated bite position for a day, he decided to go through with Dr. Muslin’s Venlay Restorations.
Underbite problems can severely impact your health and aesthetic appearance if left untreated. We have highlighted common problems experienced by people with underbites.
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.
A physical and psychological transformation after his underbite was corrected with Dr. Sam Muslin's non-surgical method.
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 confidence to embrace his new smile.
“I always thought she was so sad as she never smiled but I guess it was because her underbite was so bad. Now, after her underbite has been corrected, she can’t stop smiling.”
"I have been to multiple dentists and orthodontists and everybody has told me that I have no option other than jaw surgery. Then I came across Dr. Muslin who offers a surgery-free and easy to implement solution. The results have been unbelievable.”
