Deciding on the best filler treatment for your New York practice

New York Botox Class DiagramEvery patient trusts their doctor to be able to give them the best possible treatment for what they want, and this is even more true when a patient is considering cosmetic surgery. They want to be confident that their doctor has considered absolutely all of the different options, and knows exactly what it is that they want to achieve. Whether it’s removing those wrinkles that lie around their forehead, those creases around the eyes, the thin lips that show off their age, or the lack of plumpness in their skin that they used to enjoy – there can be a variety of different reasons that they want to look different, and that’s why there are different treatment options for different patients. When it comes to dermal fillers and cosmetic surgery, there are two particularly popular filler choices that most patients elect for:


Comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite, this dermal filler is most frequently used for deep groves around the body, such as around the nose and mouth area like the nasolabial folds. By plumping up these areas the patient is able to achieve a more smooth and beautiful shape. The injections may only last for the short term, but the Radiesse filler has an indirect side effect on our body’s natural ability to create collagen, stimulating the production of cells and helps the body to continue the look for longer.


On the other hand, you can offer Juvederm which acts in a slightly different way when it is used as a dermal filler. This type of dermal filler is perfect for plumping up cheeks and filling in lips, helping the patient to give a more cosmetically pleasing look.
Dr Howard Katz offers expert training on the differences between these, and other dermal fillers, so you can help your patients make fully informed choices. Learn all you can from his years of experience by attending his Dentox training program here New York.

Double vs. Triple Glazing Options

sliding closet doorWith the introduction of glazing options for door and window panes, many homeowners have had to say goodbye to all their huge energy bills. Of the three popular glazing options (single, double, and triple), double glazing has enjoyed a massive popularity ever since they made a resurgence in Europe back in the late 1800s. In more modern times, triple glazing is becoming a popular option in many building and renovations projects; they are just some scenarios where double glazing just isn’t enough. The question to ask is: Does an extra pane make that much of a difference? Let us find out by comparing the two.


When it comes to costs, double glazing is the cheaper option, even though triple glazing will save you somewhere between 2 to 3 percent when it comes to heating bills. This does not really seem like a worthy investment in the long run if your bills aren’t that high, but if they are, you will notice a significant difference.


Windows and sliding doors that have triple glazed glass are tougher and longer lasting than double glazed windows. This is because they are much heavier than their double glazed counter parts and require much stronger frames to compensate for the extra weight, which enhances there durability.

Safety and Security

Due to the fact that triple glazed doors and windows are stronger, it makes them that much harder to break. This means that they are safer (in case of glass related accidents) and burglars will have a tougher time trying to break them. This is a big benefit because you can’t really put a price on peace of mind.

Sound Reduction

The extra pane in triple glazed doors and windows prevent noise penetration even more, which protects your home from the disruption caused by external sounds better than double glazing can. With a few more enhancements to the glazing materials, triple glazing can offer even better sound reduction.

Natural Light

When it comes to providing more natural light, double glazing glass allows more natural light to enter. This is due to the additional layer of gas and glass pane that reduce the amount of natural light penetration. In the long run this may have a significant impact on your energy bill in terms of lighting.


Your location is also a big determinant; if you live in areas where the climate gets really cold, then triple glazing are the best option to provide you with the comfort that you need. The extra gas filled layer adds extra insulation, which prevents more heat loss as well as increasing the amount of heat the windows can trap during the cold months.

It seems triple glazing windows offer slightly more benefits that the investment my pay off if you are so keen on getting the best performance or live in very cold areas. But if you have budgetary constraints, double glazed windows and doors have been doing a spectacular job for years. The upside is that if you don’t want to break the bank on triple glazing, you can just install a few of them in the most vulnerable areas.



los angeles course botox mapFor more than 20 years, Dentox has been providing training to dentists and other practitioners on the uses of Botox and dermal fillers such as Dysport, Voluma, Juvederm and Restylan among others.

Dentox offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date Botox training in Los Angeles. Those who attend the course will be instructed on not only the cosmetic uses of Botox, but also the medical uses as well. In fact, Dr. Howard Katz, the founder of Dentox, holds a number of patents including those for Botox protocols in dentistry.

But Botox is only the first module in a three part training series. The second series deals with dermal fillers and injectables like those mentioned above.

For both the first and second parts of the training, you will be instructed on not only how to administer these products, but every facet of having these products available in your practice will be covered.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Material waste reduction with effective, cost saving measures
  • How to handle consultations and diagnosis regarding cosmetic injectable
  • Billing, coding and reimbursement training to maximize profits

Attendees who are licensed in the State of California will be able to practice injections and techniques on live models. Practitioners who are unlicensed in the state will have the opportunity to use life-like skin simulation models for the same purposes.


The third module in the course teaches about PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy. This is an innovative and exciting treatment which uses the patient’s own blood to create a concentrated substance which is platelet abundant.

This concentrated product is then injected back into the patient. PRP assists the body with its own natural healing processes. It can be used post-op for both major and minor surgeries and can be used in any number of specialty fields.

Dentists in particular can utilize PRP in cases of dental implants to invigorate the healing process and it is a more cost-effective option for cases that require tissue harvesting.

PRP can also be used as an alternative to dermal fillers at less cost and less risk of complications since the patient’s own blood is being used.


Upon completion of the course, graduates will have earned CEU credits, been educated in marketing techniques for the products they have received instruction on and will be certified and placed in the Dentox directory for generating referrals.

When you enroll in a Dentox course you can be assured that you are receiving the very best Botox training in Los Angeles. Remember, Dr. Katz is the creator of many of the protocols being used in the field. In fact, the makers of Botox, Allergan, have actually licensed those protocols.

Tips For Wisdom Teeth Removal

hin pain from wisdom toothWhen you make plans to have your wisdom teeth extracted, it’s best to plan for every scenario.  While you may feel just fine after, you could find yourself needing some recovery time.  Plan to take three or four days off from normal activities.  You may find it uncomfortable to talk and eat, so plan to give your jaws a rest.

Prescribed painkillers may cause you to be drowsy so don’t plan to drive or operate machinery until you have completed your medication and it is out of your system.

Some tips for making the surgery easier would be to take ibuprofen before hand.  This can help eliminate pain before it starts and also help the swelling.  You can alternate between ibuprofen and prescribed medications, although it’s a good idea to check with your doctor.

If the pain persists after day five, you may be experiencing a dry socket.  This occurs when the clot fails to form and the bone becomes exposed, causing pain and possible infection. This can delay healing by several weeks, so it’s important to contact your surgeon right away if you suspect a dry socket.  If the doctor determines you have a dry socket, he will pack the area with gauze soaked in a medication.  Be sure to contact the office if that does not relieve the pain, you may need an additional treatment of the packing.

You should remember, although it may seem minor, it is surgery of the mouth.  The stitches should dissolve in about a week. Keeping firmly packed gauze over the area can help stop bleeding and allow a clot to form.  Change the gauze often, and once the bleeding has stopped remove it.  Be sure to notify the doctor if the bleeding is profound.

The doctor may prescribe antibiotics to take either before or after the surgery.  They will remind you that you may stop the pain meds when you feel you don’t need them, however, be sure to take all of your antibiotics. If prescribed, it was done so to prevent or stop infection, so again a very important step in your healing process.  Although seldom, a severe infection could actually lead to nerve damage of the mouth, lips, face or chin.

A clean mouth can make the likelihood of infection significantly less potential.  Leading up to your surgery brush your teeth as normal and remember to floss,,this step,can make a big difference.  It may help to rinse with warm salt water prior to surgery also, the cleaner the area the better.

Be sure to take all materials given to you at your appointment with you.  While resting you may take some time to reach over your,surgeons advice instructions and suggestions.  Again, discussing any questions with him prior to the surgery is important, and don’t hesitate to call the office afterwards if you have questions or concerns.

Once your surgery is over and you have started to heal you,should feel much better,,and be glad,that you took care of your wisdom teeth and the extraction.   Some key points to remember are avoid a straw all together for 4-5 days, this should help to ensure you don’t get a dry socket.  Allow the clot to form, don’t pick or pry at the area.  Last of all, rinse with warm salt water will help fend off bacteria and aid in the healing process.
