What is an overbite? That's where the upper teeth are out in front, and the lower teeth have to fit behind the upper teeth. And that overlap - if it's too much, is called an "overbite."
This would be an example of somebody whose face is impacted by an overbite. Because overbites generally push your jaw back. And, so - your jawline is compromised, and so is the shape of your face. And so an overbite is where the upper teeth cover the lower teeth. The jaw is pushed back, in order to fit behind those upper teeth. Keep in mind - there wasn't a little computer nerd in your mom's body designing the shapes and sizes of your teeth, in order to fit your face and jawline. That was all done by chance.
Today you can have the right jawline, the right shape to your face - and you can get it once you understand that the position of your lower jaw determines the shape of your face. There's no better way to get there than the JawTrac jaw positioning. The idea, is - first - where should your jaw be, in order to give you the most physical comfort? Because this is healthcare. And, the most cosmetic benefit from having your jaw being put in the right place.
So look at his chin. His upper lip is in front of his lower lip. His lower lip fits behind. His chin is pushed back. It changes the entire look to his face. Look at the chin he has now. It's the same jaw in both pictures, no more than a month apart. There's no surgery, no facial fillers, no chin augmentation. This is his natural jaw, and this is his natural jaw position. The position most people have - even if you've had braces, and even if you've had jaw surgery - is not your natural position. This is your natural jaw position. And so, once we establish the JawTrac jaw position, we build that bite to match.
And so, here he is. This - with 10 porcelain veneers on the upper, and 10 porcelain veneers on the lower. Virtually worthless. Yes, his teeth are a little whiter - but he has an overbite. His chin is pushed back. He's not happy with how he looks. So we had to take all of the porcelain veneers off, and build the JawTrac jaw position bite for this patient. Porcelain veneers do not correct bite. I don't care who does them. They do not correct bites.
And, so - here is his facial profile, before and after. And his jaw position augments his entire face. The key to the entire treatment, is - getting the shape to your face, the position of your jaw - and then building the teeth to match that position. And the beauty of it, is - is when you get the JawTrac jaw position, you are also experiencing pain relief. This is healthcare. Porcelain veneers is cosmetic dentistry. You can't even deduct that from your taxes. But this is bite correction. Talk to your accountant, this is a potential full tax deduction.
Face Lift Dentistry is healthcare. And the idea behind healthcare, is - relieving pain, improving your facial profile. One of the big benefits of overbite correction, is that your airway's a little bit bigger most of the time. Because the jaw drops down, and moves forward. And that's what happened in this case. His jaw dropped down, moved forward - naturally. We didn't force it. We didn't jaw surgery it. We just let it go there with the JawTrac, and the imaging system that I have.
And, so - we're able to take a patient that has a bad jaw position, give them a good jaw position with the Face Lift Dentistry mapping. And, so - when you go to the website, there's 3 main topics. "Face Lift Dentistry," "Jaw Bite Correction," and "Before and After Gallery." Let's go to the "Before and After Gallery." So, here - should we click here - and now you've got "Overbite Photos and Videos."
This may be one of the world's largest video before and after treatment photo galleries. And the beauty of it, is - is that these patients did it without compensation. In other words - they allowed their faces to be shown to the world, and the results that they got - without any compensation to the Face Lift Dentistry method. Every one of these are my patients. There are no models. These people did this to help you. Because the people before them helped them. They'd have never gotten Face Lift Dentistry, if it wasn't for the people before them.
Now most of my patients don't sign, and they don't let us do that. So, to put them up and let them be shown. But the beauty of it, is - is these patients did. So this is a prime example. Deep overbite that impacts the entire face. The upper teeth totally overlap the lower teeth. The jaw is pushed back, and it closes too far. Part of what makes the face look younger, is getting the jaw in the right jaw position. That's what Face Lift Dentistry is about. It's just not overbite correction, this is face and jawline correction. This is levels beyond porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry. This is Face Lift Dentistry.
And so the point would be, is - going from this to this, you look at what does this cost? Well, to do - go from here to here, and look at what she has at this point - every one of her teeth needed to get a new porcelain layer built over them. So first we established the JawTrac jaw position. This drops down, and moves forward - in her case. Everyone's a little different.
And then we, then - now that we know that position, we then-- I build the porcelain, each one separate. You chew the same, you bite the same, you eat the same - in most cases. A little bit different from time to time. But the point of it is, is that they're your teeth - you floss, brush, Waterpik. You do all the things the same. They are your teeth. They're bonded, they're not removable. Although, you could take them off years down the road - if you wanted to.
But the point, is - is what one patient said, "What is the fee?" It really doesn't matter. Look what you're getting. Most of these patients spend between 70 and 80 thousand dollars. That's a considerable amount of money. But not when you consider you went from this to this. It's a matter of affordability. And so, if you want to just get moving, and you can afford this level of care - you get a cosmetic consultation appointment.
Takes us about 15 minutes. We move to the next stage, which is data gathering. We take video of you, photos of you. Models of your teeth, dental X-rays. No, none of your pictures are going to show up on the website - unless you sign the form giving me permission. Your privacy will be respected always.
And the third phase, is - now you've had the JawTrac. You love how you feel, you love how you look. Basically, you could put the Jawtrac in - bite, look at your face. Take it out, bite - look at your face. There's your old face. Put it in. Bang, there's your new face. Look at your old profile without JawTrac. Then put it in, to look at your new profile. It's a gamechanger.
This changes who you are, how well you present yourself. Many patients have moved onto other levels of their life, simply because they were maximized. We gave them the best lips they could have, the best facial support they could have, the best jaw position they could have - and the best designed teeth to match it.
