I would go to the dentist.I don't think the stretching that may occur will hinder the Juvaderm or speed up it's removal.

Stretching your mouth for a long time should not dissolve Juvederm or Restylane

+2

After a couple of days of having had a filler such as Restylane or Juvederm injected, there is no evidence that the filler will dissolve more quickly from going to a dentist and having the mouth stretched for a long while.

Juvederm in lips and root canal

+1

If you have juvederm in your lips and are supposed to undergo a root canal, I do not think that pressure during the dental procedure will impact your lip augmentation.
