Open Bite Correction for Adults without the Risk of Surgery

Braces, expanders, head gear, retainers and speech therapy, could not fix her anterior open bite. Double Jaw surgery was offered as her only option, but then she discovered VENLAY® Bite Restoration.

Most patients with open bites find that it progressively gets worse with time.  After years of braces, head gear, speech therapy and orthopedics fail.  They are faced with only one choice of treatment and that is jaw surgery. Today VENLAY® Bite Restoration offers a non-surgical open bite correction without the risks of surgery.

Back Teeth Don’t Touch, the Posterior Open Bite – The back teeth do not touch making normal chewing, speaking and jaw comfort very difficult. Our non-surgical method corrects the bite in about a month with a high level of predictability.   Dr. Muslin does the treatment on a set of models of your teeth on a “jaw movement simulator” (articulator) to know that it can be successful before any work is done to your teeth.

Front Teeth Don’t Touch, the Anterior Open Bite – Patients with front teeth that do not touch can really struggle socially because they need to used the tongue to pronounce certain words and cannot even bite into a sandwich.  Our method changes lives without missing months of work or school.  Dr. Muslin will test for success so the results are far more predictable than the other methods.

Over Jet – Patients can develop open bites and over jet because of the action of their tongue.  Some patients had pacifiers in their mouth as a very young child for too long of a time causing the shape of the patient’s upper jaw to be protrusive.  There are a variety of restorative options for these patients and the have a great chance that this method can help them.

What is Open Bite Correction?

Open bite correction provides treatment for an open bite, which involves a gap between the upper and lower front teeth. Most of the time, dentists will choose jaw surgery and braces to fix this problem because that is the only method being taught. Sometimes they try to fix it with braces alone, but that rarely works and they end up turning to surgery in the end. The only other options most dentists have are to use veneers, crowns or invisible aligners instead of braces, but usually dentists still rely on surgery to go along with these treatments. Today, a modern treatment option has been made available that is non-surgical that has immediate results in about a months time.

What is an Anterior Open Bite?

Most often, the term open bite is in reference to an anterior open bite. This means that the upper and lower teeth in the front both have an outward slope that prevents them from touching when the jaw is closed. This is one form of malocclusion, which refers to a misalignment of the bite. The posterior teeth in the back (molars) touch each other while the anterior teeth in front (incisors and canines) do not.

Symptoms of an Open Bite

Open bite symptoms affect your appearance, your health, your speaking ability and your overall well-being. You will be able to see that your back teeth are touching while your front ones are not, and your front teeth stick out. You could have difficultly biting, chewing and talking, and you might have a lisp when you speak. Health-related symptoms include worn down teeth, dental problems and TMJ problems.

Anterior Open Bite Treatment Options

  • Open Bite Correction with Veneers – Can veneers help with an open bite? Many dentists recommend them for this problem, but unfortunately, they’re not very effective. Veneers are a cosmetic fix that cover the teeth without truly changing the bite. They don’t correct the jaw or tooth misalignment. And veneers require an invasive procedure that changes the teeth permanently, so once you get them, you can’t go back to your natural teeth.
  • Open Bite Correction with Orthodontic Braces – The traditional method of fixing an open bite was to use orthodontic braces, sometimes by themselves and sometimes with jaw surgery. This is still one of the main methods used by modern dentists. Braces can work well to move teeth, even though they’re, not as predictable, can relapse and painful, not to mention they take a long time to provide results. After all that, they don’t fix the jaw structure that’s causing a bite problem. If they fail, dentists will want to move to jaw surgery.
  • Open Bite Correction with Clear Aligners – Clear aligners are simply a modern alternative to braces. They are not as effective as braces, have similar  goals while they’re less noticeable. Just like braces, they can move the teeth, which might help the bite a little bit. But most of the time it is very difficult (impossible most of the time) for braces or clear aligners to correct an open bite.
  • Open Bite Correction with Jaw Surgery – Orthognathic surgery of the upper, lower or both jaws, which is a solution dentists use for an open bite most of the time. This is an invasive method that involves cutting the jaw and moving it to change the skeletal structure. It can have a big negative impact on the patient’s face cosmetically.  After the long process of recovery, the process is not over. The dentist has moved the jaw and cut the jaw but now needs to align the teeth, usually through braces. Predictability of this method is questionable as there are no guarantees and you don’t know what you will look like until it is done.
  • Open Bite Correction without Surgery – It’s not necessary to go through surgery to correct an open bite for some patients (no everyone). Our non-surgical method does not to use braces, crowns, clear aligners or veneers, which is what most dentists will turn to. Instead, our  non-surgical method provides a,non-invasive (minimally invasive) approach that’s more effective and comes with minimal risk. This open bite correction method can even work after surgery has failed.

Dangers of Living with an Open Bite

An open bite can cause unexpected dangers from everyday life. When you can’t chew and swallow properly, as can happen with an open bite, it’s possible to not chew food completely and have it get stuck in your digestive system. It could also cause gas and other digestive problems because the food is not mixed with your saliva. Difficult chewing can also lead to pain in the jaw and in the form of headaches when you eat tough foods. 

The common treatment that dentists and oral surgeons will recommend, jaw surgery, also poses dangers. It’s a highly invasive option that comes with a fair amount of risk, expense, lost time from work or school, painful and unpredictability. After the surgery, recovery takes a long time and healing doesn’t always progress as planned. Patients have suffered for years with additional surgeries to correct the problem.  A non-surgical approach can take away the dangers of living with an open bite and the risks of jaw surgery. It is highly predictable, non-invasive and low-risk, with treatment completed in under a month and no recovery time.

Does Open Bite Cause TMJ Problems?

It can happen both ways. A TMJ disorder, which is a problem with the temporomandibular joint located where the upper and lower jaw meet, can lead to an open bite. Yet an open bite could also cause TMJ problems because the bite is misaligned.

Is Open Bite Correction Necessary?

Open bite correction provides many benefits to your health and your appearance. Not only can it improve your life, but it can also take away dangers especially from chewing and swallowing improperly. Also, an open bite worsens in time for adults, so it needs to be taken care of.

Open Bite Correction Benefits

Correcting an open bite can change your entire life. It improves your appearance by balancing your facial structure, making you look younger and giving you a better smile. When you look better, you feel better about yourself and present yourself to the world in a more confident way. The open bite correction also helps you speak more clearly and can remove a lisp. You can bite and chew better, which helps out your digestion and nutrition on top of your comfort while eating. Fixing this bite problem can also improve TMJ problems and your dental health, which plays a role in your overall health and wellness.
