Whether you suffer from muscle tension, lip lines, forehead frown lines, teeth clenching or several other issues, you may have considered a facial rejuvenation treatment. In which case, you may have researched a number of different practitioners and ways in which you can seek out these treatments privately. But, have you ever considered visiting your dentist for your anti-wrinkle treatments?
Though perhaps a little surprising at first, a dental expert has a vast array of knowledge when it comes to the inner workings of the face. With that in mind, here are some of the best reasons that a dentist is a perfect choice when it comes to your facial rejuvenation procedures.
At Dental Solutions, our principal dentist is trained and experienced to carry out facial rejuvenation treatments. Gavin has over 12-years of experience in aesthetic treatments; using his dental knowledge of facial muscle anatomy and nerves, all procedures can be performed with extreme precision. Performing injections every day, Gavin has a steady hand and practice needed to create a natural, well-rested looking, result.
He has been trained to complete both Botox and dermal filler treatments. Anti-wrinkle injections are perfect for fine lines and helping the muscles to relax, whereas dermal fillers can also help reduce the appearance of scars–either from acne or injury.
One surprising application of Botox and other similar anti-wrinkle treatments is to help reduce teeth grinding and other muscle-related issues. Bruxism can cause prolonged pain and headaches, whilst also reducing enamel and potentially even causing a chipped tooth. Though most treatments look to help reduce dental damage, anti-wrinkle treatments could be the best way to prevent grinding from occurring from the start.
When applied, Botox can limit the full movement of muscles (which wears off over time). Injecting into the masseter muscle in the jaw and the temporalis muscles can help to reduce teeth grinding at night. Though not a permanent solution, it can be a good way to halt Bruxism until other oral solutions (such as a mouth guard) can be devised.
Here at Dental Solutions, we are officially a Save Face aesthetic treatment provider. We have been individually assessed by Save Face, a Standards Authority which has a robust set of requirements that are recognised by NHS England and the Department of England. Save Face is currently the only government-regulated register for facial rejuvenation treatments.
We achieved this certification in 2017, after achieving over 50 positive reviews on the platform.
