• Implantology Treatments
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.
Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth — an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges — as well as individual crowns placed over implants — feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
•Dental Surgery Treatments
Dental surgery is any of a number of medical procedures that involve artificially modifying dentition; in other words, surgery of the teeth and jaw bones.
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the functionality) of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.
Buccal Fat Pad Removal
Buccal fat pad removal is used to remove the fat in the lower part of the cheeks to give a more sculpted look. The surgery is performed under local anesthetic in the procedure room and takes about 1 hour. The contour of the lower face is improved by removing the fat in the cheek that is not possible to lose through normal diet and exercise. This surgery gives the appearance of higher cheek bones and a more chiseled face.
Botox is most often injected into the upper part of the face. Most commonly, it is used to perform a modest "chemical brow lift" or to treat unwanted wrinkles caused by repetitive movement including frown lines, forehead lines, bunny lines, and crow's feet.
In the lower face, Botox is used to treat certain dimples and depressions on the chin, to minimize the appearance of vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and to elevate a down turned corner-of-the-mouth. In the neck, Botox is typically used to reduce prominent platysma bands (neck cords)
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
What dermal fillers can do
*Plump thin lips
*Enhance shallow contours
*Soften facial creases and wrinkles
*Improve the appearance of recessed scars
*Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
*Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
Sutures for Facial Lifting
For a facelift without surgery, barbed sutures are inserted into the face to create a lifting effect or a tightening and firming of the soft facial tissues. This non-surgical procedure is useful for those with flabby faces or aging of the mid-face, jowls, brow and neck. Selective regional lifting is possible.
The PRP treatment involves drawing your own blood from the veins in your arm. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins at high speed to separate the platelets from the other blood components. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the face in multiple injections to rejuvenate your skin.
Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer.
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin
The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin
