Anti-Aging Dentistry can be just teeth bleaching to some dentists. Or porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are anti-aging to other cosmetic dentists. This patient already has veneers and cosmetic dentistry on her upper teeth and it did not provide any anti-aging benefits.
Reversing the Effects of Aging
When we use the words “real anti-aging dentistry” we are talking about treatment that reverses the effects of the aging process and typical cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers cannot do it.
With “real anti-aging dentistry, her lips are fuller, the shape of her face is that of a younger person, she has less facial wrinkles because her overbite was corrected and her jaw position was “optimized” using the Face Lift Dentistry® method.
How does Face Lift Dentistry® Work?
It works because it is a purely mechanical, non-surgical bite correction treatment that is highly predictable. The patient can physically see the future results in the dental chair using his or her own face on the very first visit. This gives the patient a great deal of confidence when they can see how the treatment will work for them immediately without surgery. You cannot do this with jaw surgery and braces.
Testing Before Treatment
However, the best part is that the patient can experience the results using a temporary bite position “test” appliance on the very first visit. Now over the next several days, weeks or months, the patient can determine if they like the new jaw position. They can even see how much the proportions of their faces improve as well as the chin size by using the “removable test appliance”.
Many patients with overbites have a small looking chin that is really a normal size because it is in the deep overbite position. Once the bite is corrected, the proportions of the face and the chin size improve significantly. Normal cosmetic dentistry cannot achieve jaw position changes. Overbite correction gives the patient’s chin a new healthy chin position that removes years of aging by correcting the bad bite and it also improves the patient’s facial proportions. This is what we refer to when we talk about “real anti-aging dentistry”.
How Long Does it Take?
In the office of Dr. Sam Muslin, it usually takes only one visit to start after taking all of the records like photos, x-rays, models, video clip, TMJ images, make the “test” appliance and complete the exam. Then it takes only one visit to put in all of the upper restorations and a couple of short visits to manage the details a few weeks later. But, for those wealthy patients, the treatment can be done in a week.
For example, some patients need a little adjusting to their bite the next day while other patients may need a little adjusting for speech clarify while others need nothing. This patient needed very little adjusting and deeply appreciated how painless and fast this dentist’s treatments take. She said, “the shots were necessary to replace my old crowns and veneers and they were so easy and painless”.
She should know, she has had extensive dentistry on almost every tooth that needed to be replaced with new well proportioned and matching crowns and Venlay® restorations that improved the shape of her face with his exclusive bite correction method that is “patent pending”. Dr. Sam Muslin works on every one of his patients VENLAY®, crown or veneer restorations personally. This type of work is the focus of his practice.
All Photos are Unaltered
We are proud to say that the “before and after photos” are not altered to improve the results. All of the photos are untouched and all of the patients signed release forms giving Dr. Muslin written permission to show their faces. He is deeply appreciative of their consideration to help other patients understand the possibilities.
