Tyrer Dental Care can assist you with solutions for a variety of specialized oral and cosmetic medical conditions. Below are a few of the ways we can help improve your overall health.
Botox & Juvederm
We believe that a youthful look begins with a healthy smile, however, we know that it doesn't end there. That is why we are pleased to offer Botox© to compliment your great smile. We can use Botox to smooth out forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crows feet. When used correctly, Botox can give you that youthful glow without the appearance that you had anything done.
Botox© is a safe, effective, proven method of smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, and mouth. It is injected into muscles that over time cause skin to wrinkle, and once this muscle activity is reduced, skin overlying the muscles is allowed to regain a smoother, more youthful look. There are many misconceptions about Botox©. First of all, Botox© is not a poison, but a protein created by a bacteria. There are no live bacteria in Botox©. Botox© works by reducing muscle activity. Secondly, this action is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with Botox©.
Dr. Tyrer has completed training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics in esthetic improvements and is pleased to offer Botox as an additional service to our patients. This provides the convenience of getting regular BOTOX treatment during your routine dental hygiene visit, and is great for those who are curious but can’t get themselves to a cosmetic surgeon’s office. In as little as one visit, Dr. Tyrer can erase lines and wrinkles from around the mouth, ease pesky crow’s feet, and minimize stress lines on your forehead. BOTOX is also very useful in easing the pain from TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) disorders and relief from migraines and various other dentally related headaches.
> The Botox treatment only takes fifteen minutes.
> You will notice the full effect of Botox between 5 to 10 days.
> Botox can last between 3 to 6 months, depending on the targeted facial muscles
Rejuvederm: Botox and Juvederm target different areas of your face, and enhance skin in entirely different ways. While Botox works to halt muscles from contracting, Juvederm is a smooth filler that plumps skin and rounds out the area around your mouth. Juvederm replaces natural substances that diminish in facial skin as we age. The gel is injected directly into areas around your mouth and nose, erasing smile lines and facial folds. A Juvederm treatment only takes about thirty minutes, you will see immediate results, experience minimal recovery time, and your smoother skin may last a year. Using Botox and Juvederm simultaneously is completely safe, as the two treatments do not interact with one another. Our Botox and Juvederm specialists are happy to discuss either treatment or a combination of both.
Mouth Appliances for TMJ
TMJ/TMD pain (headaches, earaches, jaw pain, neck pain, ringing and fullness in the ears, etc.) is caused by inflammation in the Temporomandibular Joint. TMJ disorder can negatively affect sufferers in a number of different ways.
To begin, the pain and discomfort of TMJ syndrome is a constant annoyance. Over time, the pain may become nearly unbearable.
Additionally, TMJ symptoms affect any activity that involves the jaw. This means that activities that are normally undertaken many times each day, such as talking and eating, can become an uncomfortable ordeal to the TMJ sufferer. In the past, people with TMJ problems often resigned themselves to suffer in silence rather than undergo costly and potentially risky surgical procedures to fix their bite.
However, at Tyrer Dental Care we offer affordable option to help. Splint therapy aims to correct the patient’s bite without surgery, through the use of dental appliances that align the jaw gradually over time.
The EMA® (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) oral appliance is a customized removable appliance created for the noninvasive treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
The appliance is designed to both advance the mandible and open the bite to allow for less restricted airflow during sleep.
EMA devices help promote a deeper, more restful sleep by preventing snoring and relieving the symptoms of OSA. The EMA does not interfere with breathing through the mouth, even in cases of congested nasal passages. It has many options for advancement with nine strap lengths and four different elastic tension options. Non-restricted lateral/protrusive movement and improved movements of the jaw are possible while wearing the device due to varying elastic bands
In order to assure a comfortable and relaxing environment through the duration of your appointment we offer our personal comfort package.
