Dentists and Finishing Touches
A dentist is among the most qualified to offer you complete facial enhancement because...
A dentist's training and expertise is all about the face
As a result of their university training, dentists graduate with a thorough understanding of facial structures and anatomy.
Knowing exactly where all the nerves, blood vessels and muscles are in the face is crucial to not only achieving the best results, but also avoiding potential complications.
Dentists thoroughly understand complete facial aesthetics
A dentist works every minute of every day on the face. Every day they focus on the principals and techniques to create beautiful faces. They constantly work with the interplay between facial structures and a person's smile to create an overall beautiful and youthful appearance.
When you think about how much time a dentist spends working on the structures of the face, it doesn't take long to realise the enormous advantages of having one artistic, highly skilled, facial specialist harmoniously blending techniques in one appointment.
Dentists can make the procedure more comfortable
Dentists have the expertise to deliver profound anaesthesia. They use the simple dental anaesthetic techniques which they use every day, so that you experience the treatment in total comfort. There is no need for you to endure painful facial aesthetic treatments without anesthetic. Total Comfort.
Dentists can treat previously complicated dental problems quickly and easily
As well as providing aesthetic enhancement, dentists can also use anti-wrinkle treatments/injections containing the therapeutic doses of botulinum neurotoxin Type A to offer better therapeutic solutions to their patients' existing problems.
Relaxing tension in the facial muscles can now ease chronic jaw joint pain, facial pain and tooth grinding, which in the past, have often proven difficult to treat even with radical surgery.
Treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD)
Traditionally, facial pain and discomfort caused by Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD), clenching and grinding of the teeth, have been troublesome and complicated to treat.
Often patients are forced to endure irreversible, destructive adjustments to their teeth and bite, only to find that this brings limited relief. The use of nightguards to protect against nocturnal grinding is often poorly tolerated by patients and does nothing to protect against day-time clenching or grinding.
As a muscle relaxant, therapeutic doses of botulinum neurotoxin Type A lends itself perfectly for use in the treatment of TMD and Bruxism and has been certified for this specific use by the Dental Board of Australia.
Treatment of Migraines
Formulations containing therapeutic doses of botulinum neurotoxin Type A have been approved by both the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010 and, the UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in 2012 for the treatment of chronic migraine. It has been found that injections given approximately every 12 weeks around the head and neck gives relief to those that suffer at least 15 migraines in a month.
"Gummy smiles" (pictured below) could only previously be treated with extensive gum surgery and the placement of expensive crowns. Now we can relax the top lip and achieve a quick, simple, less invasive and pain free improvement.
