Your aesthetically minded physician will evaluate the contour of your face, eyes, nose and lips in a Juvabite Facial Analysis. Tooth wear, jaw position and dental profile will also be considered in our comprehensive evaluation process and then the patient will be referred to the Juvabite oral appliance specialist.
Most of our patients have a loss of facial height in the lower third of their face, between the nose and the chin. This negatively impacts the lips, chin and soft tissue around the mouth. When in place, the Juvabite removable oral appliance restores the height of the lower third of the face and brings back support.
Once the removable oral appliance has been custom fitted, volume loss to the lips and surrounding soft tissues can be restored with injectable fillers in a more accurate manner. Problems like over filling and unnatural results are eliminated as less filler is required to accomplish the final goal of the Juvabite System.
At 67 years old, Irene did not think she looked as good as she felt on the inside. After seeing Dr. Thomas Romo , a decision was made to proceed with a browlift, face and neck lift. The aging around her mouth revealed not only volume loss but an overbite of her teeth. Irene was seen by Dr. Michael Gelb who fitted her for a Juvabite plate and then was treated with fillers. The Juvabite System opened up her bite, elongated the lower part of her face, and the fillers gave her volume in that area as well. She states she now she looks the way she feels on the inside.
Kristen is a 24 year old successful chef and model. She was seen by Dr. Thomas Romo for fillers for her lips. Because she had such a small chin with an overbite, she was treated by Dr. Michael Gelb, who fitted her with a Juvabite plate and she had fillers injected by Dr. Thomas Romo. Now, Kristen only models with her Juvabite oral appliance
