Crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures can help
Supporting upper or lower teeth works
Laser treatment can be a big aid
When people think about seeing a professional about reducing wrinkles on the face, the first one that pops to mind is a dermatologist. The thing with seeing one of those is that while they may get results, those are short-term for the most part. The cause of the wrinkles may be something under the skin… like what is going on with one’s mouth or jaw.
So that points to another medical professional that can fix an issue like this. People see them twice a year anyways. Yes… it is the dentist. As a matter of fact, talent and modeling agencies have cosmetic dentists on retainer so that they can fix issues like this.
What are some ways dentists are removing facial wrinkles?
Replacing Lost Teeth
One of the main causes of wrinkles can be from people losing their teeth and not doing anything to replace them. The other teeth in the jaw will shift and the person’s cheeks will sink in. That sunken-in look is a surefire magnet for those wrinkles.
Getting something to fill that vacated area, like dentures or dental implants can keep those wrinkles at bay, since the patient’s jaw area will be full once again.
Adjusting Other Teeth
Sometime patients would come with wrinkles in the folds of their mouths. Initially these were thought to be unfixable, but a culprit was discovered: a collapsed bite. This causes those folds, but veneers and crowns can bring the teeth and jaw to normal length… and eliminate those wrinkles for good thanks to the bite being restored.
People also have wrinkles around their mouths due to excessive puckering due to drinking from straws to smoking to just doing it out of stress. A dentist can add more support to the front area, which can eliminate or greatly reduce the need for fillers in that area.The same kind of treatment can be done for smile lines.
Lasering the Area
A patient will go to the dentist’s office, sit in the same chair that they do for their regular check-ups. The dentist will hold the same laser that they do for removing cavities, but this time they focus on the inside of the mouth. The laser can help the patient produce more collagen, which is the key to youthful skin.
There’s only one barrier – the price. As time goes by and this becomes more mainstream, the cost may go down significantly.
Dr. Shaista Najmi and her staff will be able to perform a dental face lift. It may not eliminate all the wrinkles, but it can greatly help – plus some visits to the aforementioned dermatologist can target those areas that were missed.
