Botox is known in the cosmetic industry as a solution to reduce the appearance of aging. There is more to botox than just reducing aging, such as the treatment of orofacial conditions. These are some of the many benefits for Dental Hygienists to enroll in aesthetics training.
Botox for Dental Patients
Botox is helpful in dentistry for many different reasons. It can aid in correcting parafunctional clenching, trismus, extracapsular myogenic temporomandibular disorder, and headaches caused by these conditions.
Comprehensive treatment plans can and should involve the use of Botox. Botox shouldn’t be a procedure performed on its own. Only those obtaining proper training at the dental office have the ability to administer Botox to patients.
Why Dentist Should Train in Botox
Dentists and dental hygienists perform very high-level procedures in the office, which makes them capable of performing Botox. The proper education is necessary and required to effectively perform Botox on patients safely regardless of their potential. Dental concerns are common and you want to offer all possible relief options.
It is important to know that botox can treat medical conditions along with cosmetic preferences. It is helpful to enroll in aesthetic courses to receive a botox certification and avoid denying your patients of their wants and needs. Sometimes botox can be an alternative to treatments that are unsuccessful. Getting ahead of the popular trend can help dentist offices aid patients when others cannot.
