Abstract

The definition of health by the World Health Organization as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease" includes aesthetics as part of health. At the same time, the role of the dental surgeon at the aesthetic-facial level, at least in Brazil and other countries in Latin America and Europe, has increased dramatically. The North American market still seems to be very wary and conservative of this new approach by the dental surgeon, possibly restrained by medical imposition or by the values practised around the judicialization of health. Various facial aesthetic interventions by dental surgeon have been developed: botulinum toxin, facial fillers, submental (jowl) liposuction, facelifts, bichectomy, facial laser, hormone administration, among others.
