BOTOX® at the Dentist?
That’s Right! From chin to forehead, our team has undergone specialized training to diagnose, prevent, and treat the diseases, disorders, and conditions of the mouth, jaw, and face as well as the impact these have on the whole body.
Administered by our dentists as a simple, nonsurgical treatment, BOTOX® blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This effect reduces muscle activity and smooths out lines and wrinkles. With real, noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time—and results that last as long as four months—it’s no wonder why BOTOX® has been chosen by millions of patients.
BOTOX® for Cosmetic Solutions
If you’re looking for an effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming, then BOTOX® is right for you! BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication injected into facial muscles to improve the look of moderate-to-severe crow’s feet lines at the corners of the eyes and frown lines between the brows.
Skin ages and wrinkles due to several factors including cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, damage caused by free radicals, and muscle contractions. When you squint, frown, or crease your brow as you concentrate, the muscles contract and cause your skin to furrow and fold. After years of these contractions, the wrinkles linger even when your face is relaxed.
When BOTOX® is used to block the nerve impulses to the injected muscles, the muscle activity causing the persistent lines to form is reduced. As a result, the skin relaxes and is smoothed out.
But did you know that BOTOX® offers therapeutic solutions as well?
BOTOX® for Therapeutic Solutions
BOTOX® offers a simple solution for patients suffering from temporomandibular disorders (TMJ) – a condition that stems from the jaw muscles and causes pain, migraines, and swelling of the face, neck, shoulders, and in or around the ear.
While the exact cause is not clear, most dentists believe that TMJ originates in the jaw muscles when the joint is misaligned, or the jaw, face, head, or neck is injured. It could also be a result of joint disease, (such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis), or chronic pressure on the joint or facial muscles caused by teeth grinding, clenching, or the effects of stress.
Previously, treatment only consisted of wearing mouth guards or surgery but now, BOTOX® offers a fast, minimally invasive, and long-lasting solution.
Injected directly into the jaw muscles (typically at half the dosage used for cosmetic treatments), BOTOX® blocks the nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Once these signals are interrupted, the contractions fade, the muscles relax, and the pain diminishes!
