What are Facial Injectables?
Facial injectables are medications that block certain chemical signals from the nerves. When injected into your muscle tissue, these medications block the signals that cause your facial muscles to contract. This allows the muscles to relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Facial injectables are recommended for treating many common patient concerns such as worry lines, crow’s feet and laugh lines.
Facial injectables are also an excellent solution for a variety of dental conditions, including:
- TMJ: Joint disorders such as TMJ cause patients persistent discomfort due to the hyperactivity of the muscles surrounding the jaw joints. Patients who suffer from TMJ disorders can receive facial injectables to relax these muscles. This can reduce or alleviate the headaches, jaw tension, and muscle pain associated with TMJ.
- Bruxism: Patients who live with persistent clenching or grinding of the teeth can experience relief with facial injectables. Relaxing the jaw muscles can minimize the effects of bruxism on your teeth, preventing further damage and discomfort.
- Gummy smile: Patients who experience a “gummy” smile due to conditions such as overgrown gum tissue or short upper lip can benefit from facial injectables. Treatment can relax the lip muscles and achieve a more natural and aesthetically-pleasing smile.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Have you dreamed of having smoother, younger-looking skin? Dermal fillers work by injecting a soft tissue filler material into your skin. This can reduce facial lines and restore volume to the face for a more youthful appearance. Injectable dermal fillers can be used to plump thin lips, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and improve the overall contour of your face.
If you suffer from “black triangles” caused by gum recession, gum damage or bone loss, you may benefit from dermal filler treatment. “Black triangles” are gaps between the teeth that can impact the look and quality of your smile. Dermal fillers can help fill in the gaps without affecting the shape of your teeth.
