Why Do Dentists Offer Botox and Juvéderm®?
In recent years, there has been a shift in perception regarding the connection between patient confidence and health. More and more, health practitioners are realizing that mental and emotional health can have a strong impact on physical health. A person’s self-esteem has bearing on how well he or she practices self-care.
Dentists are taking a holistic approach to oral care by focusing on helping patients feel more confident about their smiles – including the rest of their face, not just their teeth.
Are Dentists Qualified to Offer Them?
Dentists receive a large amount of education on how the facial muscles and tissues work. Dental work can affect the parts of the face treated with Juvéderm® and Botox, and Juvéderm® and Botox can affect the way that dentists must perform dental work. So it’s actually very important for dentists to have a deeper understanding of these treatments.
Additionally, receiving dental care and Juvéderm® or Botox treatments at the same office may help to optimize care and keep patients looking and feeling their best.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is made from botulin toxin and comes as a purified protein. This protein is injected into the muscles of the face, blocking the nerve signals that tell these muscles to contract. This allows the skin to smooth out over these muscles, though the effects are usually not seen for about three to seven days. Botox is usually used on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the lips to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
In addition to its cosmetic applications, Botox may also be used in certain therapeutic applications. Botox can help to treat TMJ disorders and bruxism, or teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Botox can also help to retrain the facial muscles in patients who have been injured. Botox may be useful for patients who have recently received dentures and are having trouble getting used to them.
How Does Juvéderm® Work?
Skin naturally produces the hyaluronic acid that is used to make Juvéderm®, but the skin begins producing less of this compound as we age. Juvéderm® is a gel that’s injected into certain areas of the face, replenishing the hyaluronic acid to moisturize and fill out the skin. This effect can last six to 12 months.
