Can you guess?
As a Botox user, who usually does your treatment? A beautician or a dermatologist? Or perhaps even worse, none of these! Look out, you might have been treated by an unlicensed personnel.
Have you ever considered that perhaps your dentist might be best equipped to give you your next Botox treatment?
Want to know why? Here’s why we think dentists should be providing more beauty and holistic treatments:
- Dentists are the real facial specialists
Your dentist is a medical professional specially trained in the oral and maxillofacial areas (that means the face from chin to forehead) than just about any other healthcare professional who is now allowed to deliver Botox and dermal fillers to patients.
In truth, dentists are the primary health care practitioners who should be delivering these procedures to patients. Dentists are trained to provide holistic diagnosis and advice to their patients regarding anything to do with the face.
While it is true that training is absolutely necessary for dentists to administer injections, the learning curve is very short, because dentists can already achieve profound anaesthesia in the orofacial region, thus making patients more comfortable and at ease.
- Dentists are trained to manage and balance your full facial aesthetics, giving you holistic beauty and medical advice to achieve your goals
Dentists are uniquely suited for providing Botox treatment. Understanding the facial anatomy gives them a unique advantage at assessing the balance and overall esthetics of the face.
Also, this wealth of experience they gain by conducting intricate procedures such as injecting cranial nerves in sensitive areas of the head, or sinus lifts, implant placement, complex endodontic treatment and other services such as oral and IV sedation, makes them the perfect service provider for your needs.
Dentists no longer simply drill teeth and treat gums. With proper training and experience, dentists can achieve great results to suit your goals.
- Complications might happen if left to untrained people, however much experience they have.
Botox is not necessarily a complex operation, but it can have potential complications if not done properly.
You are putting yourself at risk each time you approach someone without the adequate knowledge to administer Botox. Especially if you’re undergoing treatment with a non-licensed professional.
A dentist, as mentioned above, understands and is equipped to monitor both the aesthetic and medical aspects of the treatment, and that should give you great assurance that you are in safe hands.
According to a study conducted by US National Library of Medicine, it was found that botox in practical uses have much more purpose than just a beauty enhancer. It also has been actively used to treat a number of facial and muscular issues in or around the face and can be recommended by your dentist to treat certain issues if it arises.
- A dental clinic can provide a one-stop shop to your botox and dental needs
Keep in mind that your dental clinic is so much more than just a place to treat gums and teeth. It is also a place of education, for medicine and habits. It is a place for beauty enhancement, which your dentist can and should provide.
