Dentistry includes the study of anatomy, particularly the head and neck. For dentists, a thorough knowledge and understanding of the skin, bones and muscles is essential to be able to practise dentistry. When a tooth is removed, this affects the muscles and skin of the face, eventually resulting in a sunken appearance. When dentists carry out a routine examination of the oral cavity, they look for signs of cancer and other problems. This dental team performs a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures for their patients. All of this points to the fact that they are eminently qualified to carry out a variety of aesthetic procedures such as dermal fillers Kent treatment.
Developing a relationship
For dentists, part of the treatment of patients is to develop a long-lasting, trusting and candid relationship with each other. Your skin is your largest organ and it is sensitive to the sun, chemicals and injury from accidents. This practice knows the importance of looking after your skin as well as your teeth. It is a logical step for a patient who already has a relationship with a qualified practitioner to consult that practitioner if they want to pursue a course of dermal fillers Kent treatment. All of their treatments, dental or aesthetic, are preceded by an examination and a candid discussion about the best treatment available for you. They always discuss the proposed treatment with a patient. They encourage the patient to ask all the questions that they think necessary to put themselves in a position to make a properly informed decision.
Some artistic ability
Performing dermal filler treatment requires a certain amount of artistic flair by the practitioner. Lip dermal fillers for example can sometimes cause an over-exaggeration of the lips which does not complement the symmetry of the patient’s face. Creating that natural look takes a lot of experience. This is where listening to a patient describing their objective comes naturally to a dentist, enabling them to deliver what that patient wants to achieve.
A dentist delivers injections to sensitive areas of the mouth on a daily basis and is therefore more than competent to be able to deliver dermal filler injections. Dermal fillers are used to create a more youthful appearance reducing wrinkles and plumping up your lips. It is natural, as we get older, for our skin to become less elastic due to a loss of Collagen. The solution that this dental team uses includes non animal sourced hyaluronic acid gels. Once the areas to be treated are identified, a local anaesthetic will be administered to ensure that you experience a minimal amount of discomfort. The dermal filler treatment is delivered by injection and the duration of the procedure is no more than a few minutes.
Longevity of the treatment
Because this is a non-surgical procedure you can assess the results which will be visible almost immediately. The beauty of this type of procedure is that you can decide whether to have follow-up treatments or not. The duration of the effects depend on the type of skin, the age of the patient and the area that has been treated. The effect of fillers can last for anything from six to twelve months.
