Botox with dental work? Why not!

Botox has proven to be a major game-changer in the world of aesthetic medicine. However, the thought of your dentist offering Botox injections may be strange at first. A service that was once reserved for other medical professionals, such as a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon, is now becoming more and more popular as an optional cosmetic treatment at your dentist’s office.

At Hertford Dental Care, our dentists have a good knowledge of the anatomy of the face because they’re constantly working on the jaws which support the tooth structures. Dental training involves much more than just the teeth – it requires a deep understanding of all facial areas. What this means is, we know just about all there is to know about the human face from the chin to the forehead.

A cosmetic dentist, in particular, is very attentive to the symmetry of the mouth and facial structure and is trained to make various cosmetic enhancements. Choosing a dentist for Botox in Hertford means you have a trustworthy professional who understands facial muscles and nerves and is more familiar with injections in these areas than any other healthcare professionals.

Botox is the brand name of botulinum toxin, a purified injectable protein used to smooth out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes and the area between the lips and the nose. Botox prevents wrinkling in these areas by slowing down the movements that stimulate your facial muscles. Ten days after treatment the skin above the treated area smooths out, making wrinkles and fine lines less noticeable. The effects of Botox can last up to four months, after which repeated treatment will be needed.

At Hertford Dental Care, we only use high-quality products that have been tried and tested over the years. Our Botox injections are stored properly in a pharmaceutical fridge and administered with very fine needles to ensure maximum comfort for our patients.
