Bicuspid Extraction Caused Facial Collapse

Removing Teeth for Braces may Cause Facial Collapse, TMJ, and Bite Problems

Reverse the Symptoms with Non-surgical VENLAY Restorations

Santa Monica • Beverly Hills • Los Angeles

Bicuspid extraction type of orthodontics can leave you with more than straight teeth. Extracting four teeth to make room for the rest of the teeth, some patients experience facial collapse, small chins, short round faces, TMJ problems, and premature aging. This patient had an overbite and worn-down, miss-matched, yellow teeth from extractions and years of dental neglect. She wanted more than just smile type of cosmetic dentistry or anti-aging dentistry. The patient also needed overbite correction with aesthetic benefits that can reverse the negative effects of bicuspid extraction.

Before and After Bicuspid Extraction Restoration

She has already had bicuspid teeth extracted and has suffered the consequences later in life.  At this point, she wanted to get the Face Lift Dentistry® method which is non-invasive health and aesthetics that support the face and increase the size of the air flow passage.

Bicuspid Extraction Orthodontics Resulted in Reduced Tongue Space

When the space for the tongue gets reduced, the patient typically wakes up more often because it has nowhere else to go but to the back of the throat which reduces the size of the airway. These patients do not breathe as well, sleep as well nor do they speak with clarity because of the bite collapse. This treatment decreases the tongue space problems associated with orthodontics and bicuspid removal. It is more than just increasing the vertical dimension, as it is all about the most ideal jaw position with JawTrac®.

“The Anti-Aging Face Lift Dentistry® Method does not require grinding down good healthy teeth and is non-surgical, no braces and improves chin size and facial profiles.”  

Reversing premature aging is not just a cosmetic reversal. With this method it is about improving the chin size, tongue space and replaces all of the old dentistry if necessary. It is also about the health of the patient from a physical perspective because the jaw must be located in the best position.

Bicuspid Extraction Restoration

This method is patient pending and is highly predictable. This patient experienced a transformation in the shape of her face; her facial profile and jaw comfort that helped her feel younger. Feeling younger creates a face that has less stress and more comfort. But, The shape of her face also improved significantly due to the bite correction part of the highly comprehensive method.

“Her sleep problems are reduced, she chews her food easier, her speech is clear, jaw pain and headaches are reduced and her face is also permanently supported by her new bite and jaw position.

Her treatment took only a few weeks and all of the old fillings, crowns and decay were removed in just one sitting. Temporary restorations were placed and a couple of weeks later her new porcelain restorations that created her new bite and new face were bonded.. Healthy tooth structure has a new high-tech layer built right over them without grinding them down to little pegs like in the anti-aging dentistal and cosmetic dentistry offices.

“Why I Did Not Go To My Local Dentist”

She wanted to save herself from traveling but she also knew that there is something very special about Dr. Muslin’s dentistry and his training. She felt he was worth the trip because she did not want to take any chances with her teeth again. She decided to go to the “expert” and get it done “right”.

“He was so fast, the treatment was so easy that it made the trip worth it, he really knows what he is doing.

Teeth Removed for Orthodontics

A 13-year old child may look good after bicuspid extraction and orthodontic braces. The same person at age 35 and older may show premature signs of aging because of lost facial support. Additionally, the front teeth had to be moved back to close the spaces caused by the extractions, forcing the lower jaw to a retruded position. When the chin looks small and is pushed back by overbites and braces, it can be causing headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, sleep problems, speaking problems, chewing problems, and physical stress and tension. The physical problems combined with the lost shape of a youthful face all contribute to premature aging.

“The “New Age of Dentistry” is all about looking younger and feeling younger with a better facial profile and chin position, all done without surgery and without grinding down healthy teeth with a comprehensive functional and aesthetic plan.
