The mastery of dentistry brings esthetic knowledge of the face that is applicable to more than just the teeth. In the process of performing a complete facial analysis, the practitioner can identify asymmetries and concerns localized to an area—such as the forehead, eyebrows, nose, or lower face—and offer Botox therapy to increase facial harmony. This book outlines the many clinical uses for Botox, with detailed illustrations
and case presentations to support each procedure. The first part of the book covers systematic facial analysis, photographic documentation, and how to plan treatment. Special attention is paid to the anatomy and physiology of the face and the identification of injection points. Detailed treatment instructions for dosage, syringe type, and needle size are included for each procedure, as well as guidelines on how to evaluate results anthropometrically to determine whether esthetic treatment goals have been met. This stunning book will change the way you approach facial analysis and widen your esthetic treatment options for patients.
