The perioral region is unique and important in the face, both from a functional and an aesthetic point of view. There is a strong relationship between the perioral soft tissues, such as the lips and the corners of the mouth, and the underlying dentition and the jaws. Perioral ageing phenomena, such as depressed corners of the mouth, volume loss and wrinkles, can be improved, however, to a limited extent with intraoral treatment. These ageing phenomena can usually be treated more effectively with several extraoral treatment modalities that also enhance perioral aesthetics. The perioral cosmetic treatment options can be divided into various lifting procedures and volumising techniques. Considering that the dentist has to deal regularly with patients with perioral aesthetic wishes and also functional problems, it is important that one has knowledge of the different perioral treatment options, for both cosmetic and functional options.
