Dentists and cosmetic surgeons who have a strong knowledge and experience in orthodontics, dento-facial orthopaedics and cosmetic dentistry, are better apt at recreating facial balance and aesthetics.
A smile consists of more than just teeth!!! You have the teeth and gums obviously, but then there are the surrounding structures – skin and lips!
You can get your teeth whitened, realigned, or even have a cosmetic makeover, however nothing completes the smile than a person with healthy skin and great lips to match.
In order for a healthy smile to be achieved, the muscles must be in-check too. When muscles are over used they become enlarged, throwing out the balance of the face. When the jaw mucles are overworked due to habits like clenching and grinding, it has a knock-on effect on the other surrounding muscles and strucures – muscle tension in the head, neck and shoulders, and damage to teeth and the joint itself.
Muscle relaxant injections are used to compliment management of grinding and clenching habits provide reliable results and near immediate relief.
It is the bony structures beneath the skin that provide the shape and support of the skin. While cosmetic surgeons can inject until their hearts are content to replace a flat looking face, a dentist highly trained and experienced in dento-facial aesthetics, orthopaedics and orthodontics, can provide more suitable options other than pumping the cheeks and end up looking like plastic fantastic.
For ideal enhancement and results, facial injectables should ideally not be solely relied upon to create results but used in conjunction with known dental procedures.
Muscle relaxants and facial injectables should be used to enhance a persons features and not used as a reconstructive tool – to re-establish underlying structure and enhance.
When cosmetic dental procedures are undertaken in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections, muscle relaxants or dermal fillers, the final results are enhanced and far superior then cosmetic dental procedures or facial injectables alone.
