Botox and Dermal Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers are a new service we now offer at Muha Dental. Botox is not only used for fine lines and wrinkles for facial cosmetics. Here is a small list of benefits for Botox in the dental practice:
headache pain resulting from muscle tension in the head, face, and neck
headaches resulting from bite issues such as TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Syndrome
persistent clenching and grinding of the teeth
“gummy” smiles due to over-retracted upper lips
upside-down smiles (as it takes more muscles to frown compared to smiling)
lip lines and puckered chins
Botox is also used to support aesthetic dentistry cases, to help patients avoid the surgical treatment of high lip line cases. Botox can also help denture patients who have trouble adjusting to new dentures, it aids in lip augmentation, and has uses in orthodontic cases where retraining of the facial muscles is required.
The clear alternative to metal braces for adults and children. Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
An in-office teeth whitening treatment that leaves you with brighter teeth in less than two hours. Your teeth could get up to 8 shades whiter in one visit with little to no tooth sensitivity.
The iTero scanner is a digital scan that allows the doctor to almost eliminate the need for impressions. If you are in need of Clear Aligner Therapy, the iTero allows us to digitally scan the teeth instead of the messy, uncomfortable impression trays that most places require. It can also be used for nightguards, retainers and some partials.
The Cerec is our same day dentistry. With our Cerec technology, we provide the patient with an individually crafted dental crown in as little as one day. This is a healthier alternative to other crowns. Most crowns require 2 appointments: one to shape the tooth and provide a temporary crown and the second appointment to insert the final crown. These appointments are typically about 2 weeks apart but with the Cerec crown, you have everything with the crown done in just one visit.
