Repositioning the Jaw: The Secret to a Non-Surgical Facelift

At Southern California TMJ and Sleep Center, we specialize in transforming not only your oral and overall health but also your entire facial appearance through innovative, non-surgical techniques. One of the most remarkable methods we use is a non-surgical facelift achieved by repositioning the jaw. This approach, grounded in Neuromuscular Orthodontics, offers a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgical facelifts, yielding dramatic improvements in facial proportions, skin tautness, jawline definition and lip support.

Understanding the Non-Surgical Facelift

A non-surgical facelift performed by Bob Perkins, DDS, involves adjusting the patient’s bite position to enhance their facial aesthetics. This is achieved by advancing the lower jaw in a comfortable, non-invasive manner. In some cases, it also involves bringing the upper front teeth forward. This adjustment ensures the upper teeth provide adequate support for the lips and are more visible, contributing to a more flattering and youthful appearance.

The Role of Neuromuscular Orthodontics

Neuromuscular Orthodontics focuses on the harmonious relationship between the teeth, muscles and joints. By optimizing this relationship, we can improve both function and aesthetics. When the bite is correctly aligned, it not only alleviates discomfort and dysfunction but also enhances facial symmetry and balance. This is the foundation of the non-surgical facelift technique.

Enhancing Facial Proportions

One of the most noticeable benefits of jaw repositioning is the improvement in facial proportions. As the lower jaw is advanced, it brings the chin forward, which can correct a weak chin and improve the overall contour of the jawline. This adjustment helps create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial profile.

Improving Skin Tautness

Adjusting the jaw position can also lead to improved skin tautness. As the underlying structure of the face is realigned, the skin can appear firmer and more youthful. This effect is particularly beneficial for patients who experience sagging skin due to aging or a misaligned bite.

Defining the Jawline

A well-defined jawline is a hallmark of youth and attractiveness. By advancing the lower jaw, we can enhance the definition of the jawline, reducing the appearance of jowls and creating a sharper, more youthful contour. This non-surgical approach provides results comparable to those of a surgical facelift without the associated risks and recovery time.

Supporting the Lips

Lip support is another critical aspect of facial aesthetics. As we age, the lips can lose volume and support, leading to a less youthful appearance. By advancing the upper front teeth, we ensure they adequately support the lips, making them appear fuller and more defined. This adjustment also increases the visibility of the upper front teeth, which can enhance the smile and overall facial expression.

A Flattering Smile

A beautiful smile can significantly enhance one’s appearance and confidence. By repositioning the jaw and teeth, we not only improve the functional aspects of the bite but also create a more attractive smile. This holistic approach ensures that all elements of facial aesthetics are considered, leading to comprehensive and satisfying results.

At Southern California TMJ and Sleep Center, our non-surgical facelift technique offers a revolutionary way to enhance your appearance by simply adjusting your bite. Through the principles of Neuromuscular Orthodontics, we can improve facial proportions, skin tautness, jawline definition and lip support without the need for invasive surgery.
