Jones Smiles - June 2018



June 2018


I am very excited to help patients with missing or broken teeth regain both the confidence and appearance of youth, and those who have noticed new lines or wrinkles that don’t match their confident smile! Depending on the product and location, patients can expect a significant improvement in wrinkles and frown lines that would only need to be maintained either annually or a few times a year. For those younger patients who have not yet seen all the signs of aging, Botox and facial fillers are a great way to prevent wrinkles and facial lines or to boost your smile with fuller, smoother lips; either way, we can come up with a treatment that will give you more confidence in your overall appearance. Additionally, Botox and Dysport have finally provided dentistry with a non-invasive treatment for patients with a “gummy” smile or excessive display of gum tissue when they smile or laugh that does not require extensive surgery. If you have noticed or been bothered by increasing facial wrinkles or have always been under the assumption that you were stuck with a “gummy” smile, please make sure to ask us about how your specific situation could be treated the next time you are in the office. I think you will definitely enjoy being able to turn back the clock on some wrinkles! NEW SERVICES MEAN YOU CAN LOOK AND FEEL EVEN BETTER

Before and after treatment with Dysport

O ne of the things I enjoy most about dentistry is the constant advancements that provide more options to not only improve patients’ oral health, but also allow us to help our patients attain a more beautiful and confident smile. Staying at the forefront of advancements in technology, materials, and techniques can be daunting at times, however I am extremely grateful to be in a profession that allows me the opportunity to improve our patients’ quality of life and their overall confidence by improving their smile. One service you may not be aware of is injectable pharmacologics, including Botox, Dysport, and dermal fillers such as Restylane. Sitting in consults with patients every day, one comment I hear often is concern with facial lines, wrinkles, and aging. We especially hear this with patients concerned about having lost facial bone from missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures. While bone and volume loss from missing teeth absolutely contributes to the aging and “sunken-in” look, many patients who are not missing teeth are also asking us why they seem to have less facial volume. Most people are unaware that, as we age, not only does our skin get thinner, drier, and less elastic, but we also see the loss of facial fat. Together, these can lead to “volume depletion,” or in other words, the disappearance of the full and soft contours of youth. While we can greatly improve facial appearance with implants in patients missing their teeth, until recently there was not much else we could offer. However, that has all changed as dentistry has continued to advance, and we can now offer solutions with Botox and facial fillers.
