Dr Williams first experience of injectables was during the years he worked in the oral and maxillofacial surgery department of hospital in the UK. He later went on to gain experience and further training in Harley street London for use for cosmetic treatments. The use of ‘A type’ botulinum toxin also known as and manufactured by Allergan as Botox® was for the management of facial pain and migraine type pains caused by muscular problems in appropriate clinical situations.
It is also more popularly known as a method of facial wrinkle reduction in some cases. New rules set by the Dental Board of Australia allow dentists to use Facial Injectables to treat conditions that cause facial pain and teeth grinding. Dentists are the most knowledgeable of the facial nerves and muscles to any other profession. It makes sense that we should be able to relieve our patients with the discretionary use of facial injectables, which has been successfully used overseas.
