This patient’s face was showing the signs of aging and she considered a chin implant, a face-lift, Botox or facial fillers or maybe all of them. The idea that correcting the overbite could be a solution that removes years of aging and improves your health is not well understood. None of the other procedures can improve the shape of the face and improving your health at the same time.
The reason she looks more relaxed in the after photo is because she actually has much less jaw strain when she closes her teeth together. Jaw strain causes headaches, neck aches and jaw pain because the TMJ and the bite position are opposing each other.
Overbite Correction – Facial Collapse
The greatest breakthrough in dentistry today is the ability to correct an overbite in a matter of just a couple of weeks. The miracle of this treatment is that none of her healthy teeth are ground down which makes the process very safe. The shape of her face has been improved by correcting her overbite using VENLAY® restorations and the Face Lift Dentistry® method. This method counter acts the typical facial collapse from aging by optimizing the position of the bite.
The Potential of Your Face
Just about every patient’s face has underutilized it’s optimal potential because very few people have the best bite for their faces. The bite position determines the shape of the face and it also determines how much the face will age prematurely. Some people always look younger than everyone else their same age group because they were lucky enough to have an optimized bite position for their face. There are very few of these people.
Optimizing the Bite is a Health Benefit
Most people that want to look younger are cosmetically motivated but we have found that the majority of the population is living their lives with a bite that compromises their health. The best bite position helps patients have less strain on the head an neck system and can even reduce the intensity of headaches, migraines, neck pain, sleep problems, digestion and jaw pain problems. Patients that have the optimized bite feel better because they are physically healthier. Athletes have improved muscle performance according to Dr. Muslin because they have less strain on their head and neck system.
Dr. Muslin says, “Patients that have more strain because of a bad bite are living their lives permanently compromised”. That does not mean that these people cannot do well in life because we all can overcome adversity. But, it does mean that they can have relief with a method and experience comfort that they never knew existed.
Dr. Muslin sincerely and humbly thanks this patient and all of the other patients on his website for giving him permission to publish their faces. All of the photos are untouched and unaltered.
