You may not realize it, but the health of your teeth and the way they are set in your mouth can affect the shape of your jaw, which can affect how your face looks and can make you look older than you really are. This is why your dentist may be able to help if you have been considering plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures – instead, consider a nonsurgical facelift.
How can your dentist help?
When teeth aren’t aligned properly, your jaw is affected. Over time, it can make your face look asymmetrical, and it can make your mouth start to sag. You and your dentist can discuss your dental issues, what can be done about them, and what changes you would like to see. Your dentist can realign your jaw, correct your bite, fix broken teeth, and replace missing teeth, which can change the shape of your face and help to correct issues such as a saggy double chin and fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
What are the advantages of a nonsurgical facelift?
The most obvious benefit of a nonsurgical facelift is that you don’t have to have a plastic surgery procedure done. You’ll avoid the expense, discomfort, and downtime of a facelift or other procedure.
Another benefit of a nonsurgical facelift is that it treats the underlying issues instead of just the cosmetic issues. Plastic surgery procedures are often temporary, and touch-ups may be needed, but fixing dental problems is a permanent solution.
A nonsurgical facelift also has health benefits – fixing worn, misaligned, or broken teeth will help to keep your teeth healthy, of course, but it can also help to prevent problems such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), muscle problems, and headaches.
A nonsurgical facelift offers you the chance to have better dental health and better health in general, as well as a way to lift sagging skin, change the shape of your face, and make you look younger.
