Why Dentists are best placed to offer facial aesthetics:
Large proportion of the dentist training involves not just teeth but also the anatomical structures allied to the mouth such as nerves, muscles and vessels. As well as providing oral treatment that is in proportion with the patient’s face, dentists are experts at administering pain-free injection.
In addition, cosmetic dentistry and non-surgical facial aesthetic go side by side. A beautiful white smile is completed by a younger looking, wrinkles-free face, and vice versa.
So what are the possible treatments to complement our patients’ smiles? They include, but are not limited to:
1. Plumping of lips subtly (injecting the hyaluronic acid dermal filer just in the borders of the lips) or by increasing the volume (injecting in the body of the lips) to enhance a smile with white, straight teeth
2. Volumisation in the mid face area, especially in patients who have lost some teeth in the cheek area, as well as replacing lost volume or filling deep lines in the nose to mouth (naso labial folds) and mouth to chin (marionette) lines with dermal fillers
3. Botulinum Toxin to target dynamic muscles. One example of its use is to reduce a gummy smile; weakening the muscles responsible for raising the lip with a small amount of toxin results in a gentler and softer upward pull when a patient smiles, allowing all of the teeth to be seen but decreasing the amount of gum on show
4. Temporomandibular joint disorders can be treated with Botulinum Toxin as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, and it can be added to treat bruxism in addition to normal dental procedures.
If the lines on your face are making you look and feel older than you really are, then an injectable may be a good solution. As you get older, the effectiveness of your skin’s natural collagen decreases, causing lines and creases around the mouth, lips, chin, in between the eyes, and on the forehead. Fillers are non-surgical procedures that can sometimes fully correct the “wrinkle” in one application similar to spackle. However, the vast majority of fillers require several injections to complete the desired effect. Replacement therapies replenish your own tired collagen, resulting in fewer lines and firmer, tighter skin. Fillers can also help eliminate or reduce scarring from acne and injuries that have left a depressed area.
ANTI WRINKLES BOTOX INJECTIONS
Wrinkles on our skin are caused due to various reasons that includes loss of elasticity of skin, sun damage, smoking, sleep position and, most importantly, facial expressions. Have those youthful facial expressions turned into permanent creases and wrinkles? BOTOX Cosmetic is the answer. BOTOX is the most common non-surgical rejuvenatory procedure. BOTOX can actually help prevent wrinkles from forming if used early enough in the aging process. Many patients prefer to use BOTOX instead of surgical correction for wrinkles and lines. BOTOX injections are primarily used in the upper third of the face. Forehead lines, frown lines (between the eyebrows), and lines around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), respond favorably to Botox but can also be used in the lower part of the face. BOTOX can lift portions of the face by stopping certain other muscular actions. Chin creases and neck bands may also be improved with a BOTOX® injection, but response here varies among individuals. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines become. While you may have earned your worry lines, you don’t have to show them anymore. BOTOX is not permanent. It lasts an average of 3-6 months. The length of time varies for each individual. The injection with a tiny microneedle can be repeated, and early clinical studies have indicated that the duration of treatment benefits is increased over time so you could require injections less frequently in the future.
