TMJ disorders cause extensive discomfort and many frustrating symptoms, but did you know your facial aesthetics may also be affected? TMJ is often caused by a retruded lower jaw that impacts the bite alignment, resulting in TMJ, obstructive sleep apnea, and poor breathing. Your facial balance is also affected – your nose may appear more prominent, or you could have a double chin or flabby neck due to your lower jaw placement. What if you could get relief from your TMJ symptoms and improve your facial aesthetics with one treatment? It may be possible through the TMJ treatment performed by Bob Perkins, DDS.
A lower jaw that is positioned too far back changes your facial features. It may look like a “weak chin,” but often, the chin is not the problem. When you shift the jaw forward, it accomplishes a few different changes in your appearance. From the profile, the face changes dramatically. Suddenly, the chin and jawline are more defined, and the neck appears tighter. A nose that looked too large before may be perfectly balanced once the chin and jaw are moved forward. Even a double chin and wrinkles on the neck can be significantly reduced when the jaw is aligned in the correct position.
Cosmetic Makeover Performed by a Dentist
It may sound impossible, but you can see incredible changes in your appearance when you receive the best TMJ treatment available through Dr. Perkins. While improving your health should be the main reason to seek TMJ or sleep apnea treatment, why not enjoy the benefits of looking your best? Many people spend thousands of dollars at a plastic surgeon’s office to achieve what can be accomplished with TMJ treatment. Some of the cosmetic procedures that may be avoided once the jaw is moved forward can include:
- Chin augmentation
- Double chin removal
- Face and neck lift
- Wrinkles reduction
- Rhinoplasty for large noses
Many patients notice a significant difference in their appearance after just a few days in Phase 1 of our TMJ treatment. Even the temporary treatment can change their facial features and create a more balanced and youthful appearance. At the same time, patients may notice their headaches and other symptoms fading away. So many wonderful benefits can occur once the lower jaw is in alignment, including incredible facial aesthetic changes.
