This is a course in the use of Botulism Toxin in a General Dental Practice and explains how Botox works. As dentists learn not only that there are therapeutic uses for this neuromodulator but also cosmetic enhancements that are directly related to cosmetic dentistry, more dentists will be actively adding this service to their practice. This course will inform dentists what this treatment modality is and how it fits easily within the scope of a General Dental practice. It is designed to give to a head start on understanding the techniques and anatomy to diagnosis and administer the neuromodulators. You will learn about the newer Botulism Toxins that are currently available on the market and how to use them to help grow your practice. The indications, contraindications and complications are discussed with clinical examples shown. An in depth review of the anatomy associated with cosmetic therapy is covered and actual clinical cases are shown. How to integrate Botox into your practice is of course an important part of this course.
