While you may think of anti-wrinkle injections (AI) as a purely cosmetic treatment, it has in fact been used for several years to treat certain medical conditions. The use of these AI’s as a cosmetic treatment was only discovered when people using it to treat facial muscle spasms noticed an improvement in their facial wrinkles. The use of the AI’s have also been shown to be helpful in reducing the damaging effects of bruxers, and also as an adjunct in the reduction of gummy smiles.
Your Beyond Smiles dentist can now safely administer AI’s for the treatment of TMJ disorders, and also as part of your Cosmetic dental makeover. As with all medical treatments, there are some potential risks to receiving AI’s therapy as well as the benefits, please feel free to discuss these with your Beyond Smiles dentist.
