Creating the perfect pout

Harry Singh explains the treatment process and potential complications for considering non-surgical lip augmentation.

From Hollywood lips to the Essex lip, it seems that a commonly requested procedure from our aesthetic patients is the non-surgical lip augmentation.

The patient had originally presented to the dentist due to pain. The dentist initiated root canal treatment.

The initial radiograph showed there to be extensive apical areas. I made an association between a mesial radiolucency and a buccal fistula.
