Facial Dental Harmony Technique for Anti Aging Dentistry
FDHT (Facial Dental Harmony Technique) is done in four phases:
In a comfortable, relaxed setting, Dr. Toubia listens to your needs and wants. He gathers your history to understand and formulate a treatment to get you to where you want to be. A full smile analysis and full face esthetic assessment are done. Bite, joint, gum and dental evaluation are done and records are taken. Once all data is collected, Dr. Toubia will do an esthetic mock up and show you artistically what is possible to achieve. This step is valuable and one of the most critical in the FDHT technique.
The goal is to create a treatment that will be customized and unique to you. Dr. Toubia is very artistically oriented and has a lot of experience and has a great eye in sculpting and creating the proper look and has a lot of dental experience. He can educate and clearly explain to you all the steps so you are well informed and fully understand how to achieve your goals. After coming to a mutual agreement for the esthetics, models are created to preserve the created design with the mock up.
Using the models created in Phase I, our lab will create a more refined mockup which we transfer to the mouth. This is a trial provisional bite rise that Dr. Toubia has developed. It allows you to wear the provisional full time for a short while which helps you to evaluate your new esthetic, muscle and joint health, function and, chewing and speech. All this is done without preparing teeth, non-invasively painless and without anesthetic. Bite rise is reversible.
Once bite rise is approved, the information gained from Phase II allows for a more concreate communication with our master ceramist and aids in planning of the final restorations. Dr. Toubia and the ceramist always try to achieve the best results with the least number of teeth involved, the most conservative, noninvasive, biomemetic, nontoxic custom restorations. There are a lot of alternative materials and procedures that can be used. To name a few are the techniques that Dr. Toubia has developed, namely CEER and CETMR. Each will be talked about in detail and then you will decide what procedure and material best suits your budget and needs. Our goal is to make you happy and satisfied.
After the delivery of restorations, we fine tune your esthetics and bite. Quarterly maintenance exam and checkups are set up. Then your bite and joints are evaluated yearly for the subsequent years. With these techniques, there is immediate effect of taking years off your appearance and essentially the aging process has reversed, resulting in a “younger look.”
Not all full facial esthetic deficiencies can be improved only by antiaging and rejuvenation dental procedures. Orthodontic and/or maxillofacial surgery may be indicated to get the best results. Also, other plastic surgery procedures may be needed to correct deficiencies that are not in the facial 1/3 of the face or other exceptional that circumstances exist that cannot be corrected dentally.
We work solely with some excellent specialists and the best plastic surgeons to achieve your best facial esthetics and beauty.
