Treatment for bruxism and/or masseteric hypertrophy.
How is a treatment for bruxism with Botulinum Toxin performed?
In the same way that the muscles of the face are paralysed to prevent the formation of expression wrinkles. We can use Botox to paralyse those muscle stimuli that occur during the night.
Bruxism also causes widening of the jaw angles. This makes the face appear rougher and squarer. In the case of women, it can give a manly look to the face that most people do not want.
It should be noted that bruxism can also cause dental problems. The Marbella dental clinic Omega specialises in treating the damage caused by bruxism. Considered the best dentist in Marbella.
With the treatment we manage on the one hand to put an end to bruxism and on the other hand we manage to soften the angles of the face.
Calcium hydroxyapatite, for mandibular angles.
These can usually be caused by the absence of prominent mandibular angles.
HOW IS HYALURONIC ACID TREATMENT FOR MANDIBULAR ANGLES PERFORMED?
Normally with high density hyaluronic acid. By means of manual remodelling, it causes a compensation of the profile, defining the jaw.
This facial harmonisation is immediate, as is the return to normal life. The treatment can last about 20 minutes.
Indicated in cases where there is a very pronounced jaw angle and the patient wishes to stylise the face.
The infiltration technique is very simple and very well tolerated by patients. Return to daily life is immediate. This treatment should be performed 3 times.
Material: Botulinum Toxin Type A.
JAW ANGLE SURGERY
The angle of the jaw becomes more obvious when we look at a person from the front. They give us an idea of the width of the lower third of the face.
A wide jaw has been classically associated with power, social dominance and masculinity. It is therefore a desirable trait in the case of men.
In these cases we will opt for a surgical reduction of the mandibular angles.
By means of an intraoral approach and prior planning by means of 3D CT, we will remove the excess jaw angle and reduce the facial width.
Jaw angle augmentation is a relatively recent procedure. We can shape the area using a product based on Calcium Hydroxyapatite mixed with Fibrin gel.
This allows us to increase the angle of the jaw in patients who require it.
HOW IS JAW ANGLE SURGERY PERFORMED?
The cause can be muscular (overdeveloped masticatory muscles). Or bony (overdeveloped jaw bone in the area of the angle).
In cases of muscular aetiology, botulinum toxin can be used, with surprising results. In cases of bony aetiology, the removal of small layers of bone in the affected area will be carried out.
This surgery can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries (chin, rhinoplasty) in the same operation, achieving highly satisfactory results.
