At Villa Nova Dental Clinic we provide everything that is necessary to experience 100% satisfaction and comfort after the completion of dental treatment. We offer you aesthetic medicine treatments with the use of botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid.
Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, can be used to eliminate mimic wrinkles, treat bruxism and reduce gummy smile.
Hyaluronic acid is used for lip augmentation and lip colour correction, for restoring lost face volume, as well as for mesotherapy.
Crucial elements of the aesthetic of smile include harmony, symmetry and proportions. It sometimes happens that the muscles participating in the smile actively pull the upper lip, displaying an excessive portion of gums. Adequately administered small dose of botulinum toxin is able to help restore the harmony and symmetry of the smile. As every botulinum toxin procedure, the injection needs to be repeated every 4 to 6 months.
Lip shape and lip colour correction
After comprehensive orthodontic, prosthetic or aesthetic dental treatment, there is the possibility of performing a minimally invasive procedure that enhances lip shape. It consists in an intracutaneous application of hyaluronic acid. The application of hyaluronic acid in dentistry is a significant complementation to any procedures aimed at restoring a beautiful, harmonious and symmetrical smile. The amount of acid administered is so small that changes remain invisible to an untrained eye. Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced in our body, restores, moisturises and refreshes the skin. Appropriately applied and administered, it can enhance the contour of lips, moisture them, restore their symmetry and highlight a beautiful and sensual smile.
Bruxism – treating headaches
Excessive teeth grinding and clenching the jaw was classified as a civilization disease. The speed of life and accompanying stress have to be released. This usually takes place at night during sleep. An exhausted body releases accumulated emotions through clenching the jaw with a muscle known as the masseter. Excessive muscle contraction may be the source of significant tension at the surface of the teeth and cause teeth wearing out, overload, cervical cavities, hypersensitivity and even cracks. Treatment with a dental guard usually proves insufficient.
This is where botulinum toxin proves to be salutary. Its task is to weaken the excessively developed muscle. A weaker muscle can no longer clench the jaw with such a force. The relaxation of the muscle relieves tension headaches, ear and temple pain, as well as pain in the mandibular joint. Very often the patient can resign from wearing the dental guard.
Patients who regularly take advantage of these procedures report a significant improvement in sleep quality and reduction of bothersome headaches.
Botulinum toxin injections are administered every 6 to 9 months, depending on the level of bruxism.
