Should Dentists Offer Botox Treatment?

Written by
botoxLips A recent article by Dr. Louis Malcmacher in the October issue of Dental Products Report explores the area of adding Botox, the trade name for botulinum toxin, therapy to the area of esthetics dentistry. He goes on to explain the boom in esthetics services currently with teeth whitening and veneers. Dr. Malcmacher suggests it is time to consider extending services outside the teeth and gums. Dr. Malcmacher points out that Botox is more then filling in wrinkles and smile lines; according to Dr. Malcmacher, Botox offers clinical uses:
  • An adjunct in TMJ cases
  • Minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip line cases
  • For denture patients who have trouble adjusting to new dentures
  • In orthodontic cases that require retraining of the facial muscles
Currently, giving injections is part of the dental practice, as Dr. Malcmacher suggests, this is just learning to give another kind outside of the mouth and you may be surprised to know that nearly half of state dental boards allow dentist to provide these injections. So what do you think? With proper training, do you think this should become an extension of dental services? [poll id="4"] Source: Should you offer Botox?

As the public gears up for the swine flu…so should we.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have issued specific guidelines geared towards dental professionals for the prevention of Swine Influenza A (H1N1) in the dental healthcare setting. According to the CDC website, some Frequently Asked Questions from dental providers have been: 1. What to do if a patient presents for routine treatment and has acute respiratory symptoms with or without fever? 2. What to do if a patient with acute respiratory symptoms requires urgent dental care? 3. What to do if staff report to work with acute respiratory symptoms? For answers to these questions and more, take a minute to read the CDC’s Prevention of 2009 H1N1 Influenza in the Dental Healthcare Setting. And for up-to-date information on the Swine Flu, you can visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/swineflu/.
