Botox, from my Boca Raton Dentist?
Who Should Administer Botox?
Technically, anyone who is insured and has attended an appropriate training course can administer Botox.
To get the best and safest results, training is not enough.
Botox injections play a significant role in facial cosmetics and a good practitioner should have a deep understanding about the muscles of facial expression and how they work, as well as highly refined injection techniques – which should be relatively painless.
General and Cosmetic dentists specialize in head and neck anatomy.
After proper training in the art of Botox there is no other practitioner who is better qualified than a dentist.
• Dentists anesthetize cranial nerves in the head and neck every day
• Dentists deliver injections in highly sensitive areas each day
• Dentists have a deep understanding about the anatomy of facial muscles
A beautiful smile is a lasting first impression and Botox is a natural adjunct to any cosmetic dental practice.
Many general dentists employ a variety of cosmetic dental procedures that restore confidence, self image, and function to teeth, gums and lips.
The effects of Botox, after injection, begin to appear within 2 to 10 days. The peak level is from one to four weeks then starts to decline after three to four months.
• Most re-treatment of Botox is between four to six months and it is well known that the effects of Botox last longer with repeated treatment
• Most active dental patients visit their dentist every three to six months which makes for a great Botox follow-up, and convenient (and discreet) treatment or renewal of Botox treatments
Because a good General and Cosmetic Dentist is highly qualified in the art of Botox, and convenient to most active dental patients, the combination of dental cosmetics and Botox is really a perfect marriage of art and science.
