What is it?
Botulinum toxin, or as it is more commonly known, Botox, is extremely popular among individuals looking to turn back the clock on their facial appearance. Some problem areas Botox can address include:
- Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
- Wrinkles of the forehead
It is also a beneficial and successful method of treatment for patients needing TMD treatment, or who experience severe headaches.
How Does it Work?
When Botox is injected into the designated areas of the face, it works to paralyze the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing creases in the skin when smiling, laughing, or even yawning.
Its ability to resolve many patients’ cosmetic problems has made it a common service offered by dentists and skincare professionals alike. However, its capabilities in providing relief to patients who have battled years of jaw pain, teeth grinding, and debilitating discomfort is proving more and more popular. This alternative method of treatment relieves tension in the jaw by inhibiting the muscles from contracting in such a way that results in migraines and serious pain.
The Benefits of Botox:
Once we have had the chance to discuss your medical history, current oral and overall health, and examine your mouth in its entirety, we will determine if Botox is right for you.
It’s important that you understand how the process works and its benefits, so you can feel confident in your decision to pursue treatment. Some of the benefits that come with having Botox include:
- Relief from jaw tension
- Removal of fine lines around your eyes, nose, and lips to improve facial appearance
- An alternative method of treatment for patients with migraines or chronic headache who rely on pain medication
Why Should I Get Botox from a Dentist?
The reason you should see a dentist for your Botox treatment is that many of the areas a person would require this type of injection occur on the face. Dentists who have received specialized training to administer Botox can perform the injections safely while making sure your oral health is in no way negatively impacted.
Another reason is that everything can be done in one appointment. If you’re already planning to come in for regular dental cleaning and checkup, please let us know you would like to talk to us about Botox, and we will be happy to consult with you at your appointment.
