For a Happy, Healthy Smile
At Dental Care Associates, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dental services. Whether you need teeth whitening or dental implants, our dental professionals are qualified to perform any treatment you might need to look your best. There’s one popular cosmetic procedure you might not think of seeing us for: Botox. Botox can help adjust your lip shape, sculpt your smile, and smooth wrinkles around your mouth.
Besides its aesthetic effects, Botox has been shown to help patients with TMJ, bruxism, and facial pain. It can also help retrain facial muscles for patients with dentures or patients adjusting to certain kinds of orthodontic treatment. In these cases, it only makes sense to receive Botox injections from a trained dentist who understands both the cosmetic and the dental aspects of the procedure.
Most often when people think of Botox they think of the cosmetic benefits. Botox can also alleviate pain.
Benefits of Botox
- Can relieve pain caused by TMJ disorder, grinding teeth, and the discomfort of jaw tension
- Reduce Migraine pain
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines
Botox is the common name for botulinum toxin, a protein that can be injected into the facial muscles. Botox doesn’t affect the muscles themselves—it blocks the transmitters between the nerves that move the muscles so that the muscles can’t contract. This stops the motion that causes wrinkles. Three to ten days after the treatment, the skin that surrounds these muscles smooths itself out. Why see the professionals at Dental Care Associates for Botox? Your dentist has spent years studying facial anatomy and spends his or her career injecting anesthetics in many of the same areas treated with Botox – let’s talk about if Botox is right for you.
