Dr. Gloria Ospina takes every patient's consultation seriously. These consultations give her all of the data and information she needs to create a comprehensive diagnosis plan tailored to you. These consultations consist of Photographs and X-rays that she needs to see where each of your teeth fall and how they impact your smile. Itero 3-D technology is used to create a digital model of a patient's mouth and facial structures. Pictures are also taken so that she can see your smile in various states, from a gentle smile to a smile you would usually see when you laugh. These photos help her evaluate how much gum is visible with varying levels of smiling.
Analysis Phase: with the photograph images, Dr. Ospina can analyze the size and the position of your teeth, how much gum you have, and how thick your lips are. From this analysis, she can see if altering of the lower lip to a different position is the best method to achieving the smile of your dreams.
Dr. Ospina has a variety of techniques for lip repositioning and gummy smile surgeries. These techniques are patent and are leading the new wave of procedures for the future. Dr. Ospina's lip repositioning surgery is also known as high-lip line corrective surgery. During this procedure, she removes a piece of the tissue against the gum and against the soft gingiva. This technique releases the muscles underneath the gums and the lips rolls up, with the help of a small suture. She then adds Botox to the muscles that elevate the lip. This extra step ensures that the lip remains in place, and that the sutures remain in place. And, as an extra bonus, your lips become fuller, plumper, and look their absolute best. The use of Botox in the lip repositioning procedure has made the success rate of this surgery unparalleled. She also uses laser technology to ensure that the gum line is cleaned efficiently and painlessly.
