Because the majority of dental implant patients are older and have facial aging, dentists may want to consider the benefits of rejuvenation techniques such as Botox to maximize the cosmetic outcomes of the procedure, according to a presentation at the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) annual meeting in Las Vegas.
Joseph Niamtu III, D.M.D., an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, told the AAID audience that for many dental implant patients restoring facial volume is as critical as the dental restoration for achieving optimal cosmetic outcomes.


“The face is the frame for cosmetic dentistry, and dentists should consider the benefits of facial volume restoration when performing implant surgery on older patients with facial aging,” Dr. Niamtu said in an AAID press release. “The standard today requires consideration of facial structures and volume restoration to maximize patient satisfaction with cosmetic and restorative dental procedures.”
