We Welcome New Patients

 

 

 

When we were children we couldn’t wait to grow up. However, now that we’re adults we might stare into the mirror wondering who that person is that’s staring back at us. Sure, we might still feel like that child of ten, but we certainly don’t look like it anymore.

If you feel that your face could use a little lift but face lifts and other more invasive treatments have you reconsidering, then it’s time to see how dermal fillers could give you the younger-looking skin you want without surgery.

Botox

Botox has been FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles including frown lines, crown’s feet and those pesky wrinkles between the eyebrows. Botox injections contain acetylcholine, a chemical that stops muscles from contracting, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This treatment only takes about 10-15 minutes to administer, it’s virtually painless and you can start to see results after about one to two days (with the full effects showing up after 30 days). Plus, there is no recovery period or downtime necessary after treatment, which makes this an ideal option for those with busy schedules. The results last anywhere from 5-9 months, and some patients will opt for more treatments to keep up their vibrant, new appearance.

Dermafill

This injectable is also FDA-approved to treat and minimize deep facial folds and wrinkles. Dermafill uses hyaluronic acid—a sugar molecule found in most living things—which means that this product is natural. Since this product uses natural materials to promote younger-looking skin, there is less chance of side effects or allergic reactions. Just like Botox, dermafill injections plump skin and added volume and smoothness to the face to make you appear more youthful. Treatment only takes about 15 minutes, and the results last for about a year.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the cosmetic treatments we offer in Northeast Indianapolis, we would love to chat with you. Call us to set up an appointment or stop by our office to find out more. It’s never too late to give your skin a healthy makeover.

Millions of people use Botox to achieve a more relaxed and smiooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression. Combining this with teeth whitening, short term orthodontics, or porcelain veneers, you will have a considerably more youthful appearance quickly.

Millions of people also suffer from TMJ syndrome, chronic migraine, headaches and other types of facial pain.  You may have tried a number of different treatments for pain relief that have had little success.  Botox can be very effective in treatment of facial pain disorder when used in conjunction with other treatments.  

Botox is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into the targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscles which reduce or eliminates fine wrinkles and lines.  Within 3 - 5 days of the Botox injections, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled.  The untreated facial muscles contract in normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.  The injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for approximately 3 months.  With regular treatments, Botox can help train your facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and facial pain for longer periods of time.

Dental professionals are highly trained in the entire anatomy of the head and neck as well as the oral cavity.  We can administer your treatments with exceptional acuracy and precision.  Because Botox is a temporary treatment, for your convenience, these treatments can be scheduled to coincide with your routine dental hygiene appointment.

Category: Snoring Appliance
Snoring is a common sleeping problem that may affect up to 50 percent of the population. When someone snores he emits loud, disruptive sounds while sleeping that can make it difficult to get a restful night of slumber. If you have been told that you snore loudly by a friend or family member, learn more about this issue and how getting a Northeast Indianapolis snoring appliance from Dr. Jack Nicewander may help.
 

Snoring Problems

Snoring is a problem mostly because of the noise, but it can also cause problems with your breathing. When you fall asleep, the tongue and throat relax. The throat becomes narrower, so that when you breathe in it vibrates. People who snore have narrower airways -- the smaller it is, the louder the vibration. In extreme cases the passageway will completely close, forcing the snorer to wake up suddenly throughout the night. This is called sleep apnea, a condition that needs to be addressed if the patient wants to have a normal night of sleep.
 
Snoring doesn’t just affect the patient -- it also affects his family members. Getting a snoring appliance is beneficial to everyone in the household.
 

What Is a Snoring Appliance?

Experienced dentists like Dr. Nicewander can design and prescribe what is called a snoring appliance to correct these sleeping problems. A snoring appliance is a special tray that you wear while sleeping that adjusts the position of the jaw so that helps reduce or prevent snoring activity. There are dozens of different varieties of snoring appliances -- some that fit on one row of teeth, some on both and some that go over the tongue. One is just right for your specific case.
