“Maybe the biggest advancement in high tech dentistry today is underbite correction that is non-surgical, no braces and does not require grinding down your healthy teeth” -Sam Muslin DDS
Just about everyone with an underbite has been told that they have to have jaw surgery and braces by their orthodontist and oral surgeon. Dr. Muslin has over 38 years of experience with braces, mouth reconstructions, bite correction and has developed a method that is safer and more predictable than jaw surgery. He is not saying that jaw surgery is bad, but he is saying that too many patients are getting jaw surgery unnecessarily.
How Does Dr. Muslin Move The Jaw?
The only reason your face looks like it does is because your under bite guides your lower jaw into a bad position making your chin look larger that reality and your facial profile look less than optimal.
A bite can be created that can guide your jaw into an ideal position that improves your facial profile and the size appearance of your chin using specific jaw imaging technology, the patent pending bonding technique and the exclusive VENLAY® restorations that were created specifically for the Face Lift Dentistry bite correction method.
This method works well with both Overbites and Under Bites.
Facial Profile Correction – Under Bites and Overbites
Correcting Under Bites without Surgery using VENLAY® Restorations
Patients with under bites have a problem with larger looking chins because the chin is guided forward away from the patient’s ears making their chin look much larger than it really is in reality. Their chin is really smaller than it looks so constructing a bite that is built to the patient’s facial features so the bite guides the jaw into it’s proper position the facial profile is improved and so is the size of the chin.
“Face Lift Dentistry® is about idealizing the patient’s natural facial features by correcting the bite so it will guide the jaw into a healthy position for the first time in the patient’s life”. -Sam Muslin DDS
Nothing works for everyone but with this method, Dr. Muslin has been more successful than with any other method. He is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry with means he has taken far more continuing education that is certified by the Academy than most dentists. This method works well because he can see what is happening with the jaw and have imaging that can locate the most ideal position. Then he tests this new position with a removable “test appliance” so he and the patient know in advance that the patient finds the new jaw position to be more comfortable. Then and only then does Dr. Muslin build the bite for the patient.
If You Have Already Had Jaw Surgery You Still Can Be Treated
“He spent many hours in speech therapy that did not help him until his under bite was non-surgically corrected. Patients cannot speak clearly if they do not have the right structure to their teeth, jaw and bite.” -Sam Muslin DDS
Porcelain veneers are only cosmetic camouflage that helps the patient look better from the front view and not from the profile view. Veneers do not correct the patients bite.
