BOTOX AND DERMAL FILLERS
Beautiful smiles are not only accomplished through teeth and the mouth but by the overall aesthetics of the face. At Athens Oconee Dentistry, we combine cosmetic dental treatments with rejuvenating facial aesthetics to achieve your very best smile.
It would be an understatement to say that Botox is one of today’s most popular anti-aging treatments. In the twenty-plus years since this product emerged, its use has expanded worldwide. For the past several years, Botox and other injectables have topped the leader-board of minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures. Who is better to perform injectable facial treatments than your dentist, who has been educated in all of the vital structures of the face, head and neck.
Botox has both medical and cosmetic benefits. In the dental office, it may be used to reduce the effects of TMJ Disorder. This condition is often caused by bruxism, or clenching and grinding the teeth. Because Botox relaxes underlying muscles, it relieves overworked jaw muscles and joints.
Dr. Nail’s specific training makes him a wonderful resource for the most natural-looking facial rejuvenation. In a quick visit, this product can be administered around the eyes or on the forehead to release the downward pull of the brows or minimize the appearance of crow’s feet or glabellar lines.
Botox is often complemented by dermal fillers. The two types of products differ in their effect on the skin, though they accomplish similar goals. The purpose of Botox injections is to relax contraction in the muscles used excessively for facial expressions. Dermal fillers have a plumping effect on lines and folds. While Botox is typically applied to areas on the upper part of the face, we use Juvederm and Restylane products on the lower areas where the loss of volume occurs with age.
Dermal fillers are used to correct soft tissue volume deficiencies in oral related areas essential to every anterior dental case.
Dermal fillers can soften lines around the nose and mouth and may be applied beneath the skin to lift the corners of the mouth. Restoring volume to areas such as the cheeks can have a positive effect on the jaw line by lifting jowls and improving overall definition.
At Athens Oconee Dentistry, we continually expand and improve our skill set because we believe in serving your needs to the greatest extent possible. To learn more about Botox and dermal filler treatment, schedule a visit with our friendly, experienced team.
A great smile involves teeth and all surrounding soft tissue which can be smoothed by Botox and volumized by Juvederm. Where better than Athens Oconee Dentistry to rejuvenate your appearance? Contact us at (706) 549-2440 for details on Botox and dermal fillers from Dr. Nail.
