Botulinum Toxin is a popular treatment to stop ageing before it even starts. It is, however, no longer just a quick fix for beauty-conscious adults. New evidence shows that injecting botulinum toxin A is a safe and reliable procedure to fix the so-called ‘gummy smile’.
An increasing number of dentists in the country are using Botulinum Toxin injections to help people who feel uncomfortable with their large, visible gums. As patients lie in the dental chair to reduce the amount of gum shown, they may achieve their desired smile at the same time.
Botulinum Toxin for Cosmetic Purposes
In the past, surgery was the only way to remove some of the extra gum tissue, but it was costlier and often painful. Botulinum Toxin injections, on the other hand, are more affordable and the result can last for up to six months. According to industry professionals, the ideal smile should only show two millimetres of gum and sees the upper lip covering the top of the teeth. This is the reason many people already feel embarrassed and self-conscious when more than three to four millimetres of gum are showing.
A gummy smile may seem like no big deal, but it may have a big impact on one’s social, professional and personal relationships. Fortunately, Botulinum Toxin injections now appear to provide effective solutions to cosmetic problems. With proper knowledge, dentists may help patients achieve not just beautiful teeth, but a stunning smile as well.
Training is Key
Botulinum Toxin, if not used properly, may cause long-term health problems. This is the reason dentists must use botulinum toxin A for dental treatment only. Taking the necessary training programmes is important to get started in facial aesthetics.
As the National Health Service (NHS) points out: ‘Practitioners need training in a variety of areas to give injectable cosmetic treatments. These include how to deal with a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) and other adverse reactions to treatment. Nonsurgical procedures usually involve injections of either fillers or botulinum toxin, and carry less serious risks than surgery in general. However, over-correction can be difficult to treat’.
