Your smile doesn’t have to end with just beautiful teeth
At Nedlands Dental in Perth we understand a smile is about your whole face, not just your teeth. Cosmetic treatments, such as anti-wrinkle Injections can help reduce and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Cosmetic injections are administered into specific muscles of the face with extremely fine needles.
Their anti-wrinkle effects are achieved by blocking the nerve impulses that connect to muscle fibres and reducing their activity. This relaxes the muscles. The result is to soften or even erase lines which are showing. The results are generally visible between 7 and 14 days, and can last for up to 4-6 months.
Facial aesthetic procedures at Nedlands Dental include:
- Teeth grinding or clenching
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Bunny Lines (one either side of the nose)
- Eyebrow lift
- Gummy Smiles (under the upper lip)
What to expect
When you decide to come to Nedlands Dental for cosmetic injections, we will invite you to an initial consultation to discuss if facial aesthetic procedures are suitable for you. If you are concerned about discomfort, we can apply a local numbing gel to the site of the injection, but even without numbing gel the injections should not be uncomfortable.
Our dentist will gently inject your face in pre-agreed areas. The procedure will require no bandaging or antiseptic cream to be applied. Once completed, you can go about your day as normal, with no time missed from work or extensive aftercare. Just avoid laying down for the first 4 hours, excessive exercise for 24 hours after the procedure and try to avoid rubbing/ massaging your face.
Muscle relaxant injections for dental issues
It isn’t just aesthetics that Botox can help with. Part of the reason why Nedlands dentists can administer Botox injections is because of the fact that Botox can also help to treat wide range of dental issues.
Whether you suffer with teeth grinding or a gummy smile, Botox injections can offer relief for a whole host of different reasons.
Common dental issues that Botox injections can help with include:
If you suffer with a gummy smile, Botox can help. Botox can help to relax muscles in and around the upper lip. As gummy smiles are often caused by over-retraction of the upper lip, you can see why this is so useful.
Temporomandibular Joint disorders can cause a wide range of health issues, including headaches. Botox injections can help as they relax the muscles in the face, relieving tension in the face which is responsible for these headaches.
Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, is often caused by clenching and tensing of the muscles in and around the jaw. Botox injections relax these muscles, thereby reducing the symptoms of Bruxism.
Sometimes tension caused by tense and stiff muscles in the face and neck can lead to severe headaches and migraines. Botox helps relax these muscles and has been found to be a very viable migraine treatment option.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections (also known as wrinkle relaxers) are perhaps the most popular cosmetic medical treatments.
The treatment involves the use of a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing facial muscles, resulting in a smooth, rejuvenated, and fresh appearance.
Are anti-wrinkle treatments safe?
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most safe cosmetic procedures available. The procedure might sound risky to the layperson (after all, it involves injecting a toxin beneath the skin). However, when you look at things more closely and hear about the facts, it's clear just how safe the treatment is.
Cosmetic injections are used all over the world by people looking to enhance their appearance and treat a range of medical conditions. The treatment is injected directly into the muscle beneath the wrinkle, causing the muscle to relax and enhancing the skin.
If you have any questions regarding anti-wrinkle injections, please give us a call on 6389 2711 to talk with one of our experienced dentists. They'll gladly answer any queries you may have about anti-wrinkle injections or any facial aesthetic procedures at Nedlands Dental.
