At Dentistry with Care Chatswood, we are delighted to offer you muscle relaxant injections and dermal fillers for a complete smile makeover that our patients love.
As well as providing a beautiful smile of healthy, straight, white teeth, we can also frame those teeth with equally beautiful lips. We can help remove or decrease facial lines to maintain a youthful, healthy smile and expression.
Muscle relaxant injections
We offer injectable medications that are used to relax muscles. Dentists are able to use this reliable medication in the treatment of certain health or aesthetic problems that a patient may be experiencing across the face and neck.
Muscle relaxant injectables relax the muscles under the surface. This helps to fade the hyperdynamic lines in the skin caused by muscles that are not fully relaxed. These hyperdynamic lines tend to deteriorate the skin, appear to ‘age’ the person and can decrease self-esteem.
Traditionally, lines appearing on the forehead, between the eyes, (‘frown lines’), around the eyes, (‘crow’s feet’), and ‘bunny lines’, across the bridge of the nose, are the most common areas to be treated for aesthetic reasons. However, there are also a whole range of new uses that are available to our patients.
Muscle relaxant injections are less invasive than many traditional treatments for the following problems:
- headaches, or facial pain, through treatment of Temporomandibular Disorders, (TMD),
- teeth grinding or ‘Bruxism’,
- ‘Gummy smiles’, where you may feel too much gum is showing when you smile
- an asymmetrical smile
As well as muscle relaxants, dermal fillers can make a significant difference to your smile.
As we age, the skin loses elasticity, volume and structural support. This can lead to the formation of deep lines, grooves and folds, especially around the mouth. In addition, our lips begin to lose volume and become thinner and less well defined. Skin folds commonly running between the nose, mouth and chin become lines. These furrows are among the first to appear on the aging face. These, together with lip enhancements are the primary areas that dermal fillers can treat to improve facial aesthetics.
Dermal fillers are a temporary treatment method that provides immediate results by eliminating these facial lines. They consist of a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies and is therefore broken down by natural means. It is also hypo-allergenic.
We can use dermal fillers to correct some spaces between teeth, easily and safely. Until now, this has been a more difficult problem to correct.
