This is a very good question. When one thinks of a Dentist they think teeth and gums. Head, neck and oral anatomy and physiology is what Dentists focus on during their years in dental school. Other health care professionals study the entire body in the same amount of time that dentists only focus on the head and neck. Administration of neuromodulators is a natural extension of what Dentists have already studied and work with everyday.
Dentists that are qualified to offer neuromodulators (Botox®, Xeomin, Dysport, etc.) can augment the services offered in their offices to further enhance the smile. The smile is one part of facial esthetics. Dentists that can offer neuromodulator injections have the ability to not just look at individual teeth but how the smile and facial esthetics work as a unit.
Dentists are often faced with patients who suffer with jaw pain, headaches and migraines. Dentists who are trained in neuromodulators can potentially now help these patients as well. This may eliminate the need to see multiple health care professionals.
Giving injections is something Dentists are extremely familiar with. Dentists know all to well the anxiety this can bring to patients. Injections are what dentists do all day, everyday and they are very aware of how to keep things as comfortable and pain free as possible.
Seeing a Dentist for your neuromodulator (Botox®, Xeomin, Dysport, etc.) treatment has the added benefit of confidentiality and discretion. No one will know if you are seeing the Dentist for a cleaning, filling or some facial treatment. For many patients this adds a level of comfort knowing there is this level of confidentiality.
