Beyond the Smile: Mastering Perfection from Excess to Recess


Dr. Harrison Mackler invites esthetic injectors to a comprehensive lecture on diagnosing and treating gummy smiles. This session will emphasize the critical role of accurate diagnosis in deciding whether cases are better suited for treatment with neuromodulators or require periodontal interventions, such as a "gum lift" (crown lengthening) or lip repositioning surgery. The discussion will also explore treatments for gum recession and "gum drop" (gum graft) procedures. Designed specifically for esthetic injectors, this presentation aims to provide advanced skills and knowledge to enhance oral aesthetics through both corrective and preventative measures, ensuring comprehensive, tailored care for each patient.
