MoreThan Just Cosmetic Dentistry: TMJ Pain, Flared Teeth, Facial Asymmetry: Corrected Non-surgically

If you are considering cosmetic dentistry for worn teeth, crooked teeth, or have an underbite or overbite, or have TMJ pain, headaches, or clicking and popping… why would you do veneers to the same bite position that caused these problems in the first place?

Often patients are advised  that their only choice of treatment is jaw surgery plus orthodontics, a treatment method that can take a couple of years.  Jaw surgery is not the only available solution for correcting overbites, underbites, open bites, misaligned jaws or TMJ pain.  Non-surgical jaw alignment is a viable option in most cases.

There is a way to correct misaligned bites without surgery or years of braces.  In this case, this gentleman presented with severe clicking jaw joints,  headaches, facial pain, and difficulty chewing.  These were affecting his daily life and he did not want surgery.

Dr Konig explains, “So many cases of underbites, overbites, TMJ pain,  collapsed bites, and misaligned bites can be treated without surgery and with very predictable  outcomes. “

Additionally, Dr. Konig’s methods for functional cosmetic dentistry allow for a “test drive bite and alignment” before any permanent treatment is started.  This also allows for the joints and muscles to heal as well. An additional benefit is patients are able to see the shape of their face and improved profiles beforehand. Placing the jaw back in a harmonious alignment offers benefits of correcting facial asymmetries, improved lower 1/3 of the face (non-surgical facelift in the dental office), and comfort.

The case above shows how the misaligned jaw, worn teeth, discolored teeth were corrected and the results are comfort, enhanced facial symmetry, and a beautiful, healthy smile.
