Dentists are prohibited from using botulinum toxin, better known as Botox, hyaluronic acid and applied against wrinkles for cosmetic purposes. The veto is the American Dental Association, published in the Official Gazette on 5 September.

According to the resolution, clinicians can use the toxin only in cases therapeutic. The acid is forbidden in any kind of treatment. The council argues that filling facial or lip for cosmetic reasons is not the activity of the dentist. Another argument is the lack of studies on the safety of using these substances in dental treatments.

The chairman, Ailton Morilhas, said the goal is to enhance the resolution of the dentist is authorized to do or not. He said the federal council is not aware of cases of irregular use of substances by dentists. Before we decided to anticipate problems occur. It is to protect the health of citizens, he said.

The literature so far, does not provide safe conditions for use of these substances and a lack of scientific evidence in the dental field. There is no rule or law that sustain the dentists in the use of techniques or medications to fill in your lips or facial area, with highly aesthetic purpose, with the use of substances such as hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin, the resolution said.

According to the ethical code of the category, is a violation when the dentist provides treatment which has no training or run, even in a hospital, surgery outside the scope of dentistry.
