Lately, talk has been going around about therapeutic dermal fillers entering the world of dentistry.

We here at West End Dental, love to update you on the latest practices that we have to offer to you. You can read through to see why therapeutic dermal fillers are related to dentistry and why they are beneficial for you.
What Are Therapeutic Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are commonly confused with Botox, but they are different. For example, dermal fillers are meant to plump the face, whereas Botox is meant to remove fine lines. However, they are both used to achieve a younger appearance, hence why people enjoy getting both done.They can be made out of either synthetic or natural materials. Whether you choose synthetic or natural dermal fillers, they both work the same way. The only difference is that the natural ones tend to wear off faster, which will require regular touch-ups over time.
What Are the Benefits of Therapeutic Dermal Fillers
As mentioned earlier, the purpose of getting therapeutic dermal fillers is to plump and fill out tissue folds. One of the most common places to get these are where the lines form when you smile. The effect of time, gravity, and diminished skin elasticity causes these skin folds and lines. By injecting the dermal fillers directly into these areas, they begin to disappear. People with thin lips also enjoy getting therapeutic dermal fillers done. It easily makes them larger. Another predominant use of dermal fillers is that they help achieve a more youthful look. In areas where skin folds the deepest, people can get chronic irritation and redness of the skin, that can lead to yeast infections. Dermal fillers can resolve this phenomenon.
