Dentofacial aesthetic treatment through the use of cosmetic injectables

Cosmetic injectables can be used to:

  1. Relieve the symptoms of bruxism (i.e. the involuntary clenching, grinding and gnashing of the teeth such as acute jaw tension or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder; 
  2. Create a youthful look; and
  3. Treat a gummy smile. 

These injections offer fantastic results without any invasive procedures. Specifically, cosmetic injections can provide immediate volume to areas around the mouth, such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lips, to create the proper lip lines, smile lines and phonetics. These areas on the face shape up your smile. The injectables can also fill out lips and static folds in the face caused by the loss of collagen and submental fat with age.


Treating bruxism

Bruxism is a condition in which you unconsciously grind, gnash or clench your teeth. Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.
You may be surprised to learn that recent studies have shown that cosmetic injectables are effective as a treatment for bruxism. This is because the muscle-relaxing properties of these injections work by reducing jaw clenching and teeth grinding, which in turn helps with any accompanying headache and tension.


Creating a youthful look (anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections)

The ageing process affects your teeth and can lead to discolouration, as well as a number of other concerns. There are several treatments available that can restore your teeth and enhance them, such as whitening and veneers. 

Facial wrinkles are also a part of the natural ageing process. With aging, the skin naturally becomes less elastic and drier, with less submental fat and collagen in the deeper layers. This process results in the lines and creases typical of wrinkling. It also causes loose, saggy skin. 

So why not take things a step further and treat these other signs of ageing around the mouth area with anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections. These non-invasive injections can be used to reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles around the face and lips and to improve the appearance of the chin, neck and jaw line. This result can be achieved by using anti-wrinkle injections that temporarily ease the facial muscles for up to 3 months, thereby smoothing out wrinkles, creases and expression lines. Repeated treatments can then help maintain the desired results. Dermal filler injections can also be used to bring back the lost volume to your soft tissue and are commonly used for nasolabial folds (creases in the skin extending from both sides of the nose to the corner of the mouth), marionette lines (wrinkles at the corner of the mouth) and creases on the lips and chin. These injections generally last for around 6 to 18 months, with their duration depending on the type of injectable treatment used and the area where the injection was administered. 


Gummy smiles and lip enhancement

There are various reasons why you may have a gummy smile, including genetics. One of the ways to improve a gummy smile, is by using anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscle that lifts the upper lip to reduce gum show. The injections can also be used to relax the muscle that surrounds the upper lip, which causes it to curl in and reduce in height, especially when smiling. By relaxing this muscle, the lip turns outwards and becomes thicker when smiling, thereby reducing gum show. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used in combination with dermal filler injections that bring back the lost volume to soft tissue in the upper lip to help increase its thickness and better cover the upper gums, to improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
