Therapeutic Injectables Cairns
New advancements in injectable therapy help to provide more (virtually) pain-free options for patients
Many patients relate dental technology to pieces of equipment like high-tech lasers and 3D printing. However, technology goes much further than that. Recent advancements in medical technology have developed new products and techniques that are used every day in dental offices.
Therapeutic injectable use has become much more popular in recent times and as dentists spend each day working on the inside of clients’ mouths, they know facial anatomy better than most.
What can therapeutic injectables treat?
The team at Future Dental use muscle relaxants to treat a range of issues including:
- Orofacial and craniofacial pain
- Neck and shoulder pain through the trapezius, splenius capitis, torticollis and deeper strap muscles of the neck
- TMJ pain
- TMD/MPD (temporomandibular disorders)
- Myofascial pain dysfunction
- Tension-type headaches
We also use it in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, a debilitating painful form of nerve pain and nerve tissue regeneration. It has also shown great results for intra and peri-oral wound healing.
How do muscle relaxants work?
Muscle relaxants are designed to calm down skeletal muscles accountable for voluntary movement.
Muscle relaxants can either act directly on a muscle (peripheral) or centrally, but most are central acting. However, we aren’t entirely sure how they do their job. The relaxants act directly on a muscle, but they don’t act on it directly to relax the muscle. In other words, they don’t stop the release or crossing of the neurotransmitter, so the muscle is still able to work ever so slightly.
Can I get injectables for cosmetic treatments?
The team here at Future Dental works in close harmony with Face Today Mediclinics. Focusing on a compassionate environment with highly trained practitioners, Face Today Mediclinics offer the expertise of cosmetic injectors, cosmetic doctors, laser and skin, and internal anti-ageing consultants.
