What is Botox used for in dentistry?
Patients utilize our Botox services for both cosmetic and restorative reasons. You are welcome to schedule Botox treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your face or to increase your lip size. In terms of pain relief and treating dental-related conditions, Botox helps patients who are suffering from:
- Teeth clenching and grinding
- General facial pain and jaw soreness
- Migraine headaches
- Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ/TMD)
What do Botox treatments involve?
Botox treatments do not take very long, which makes it easy for patients to fit Botox appointments into their schedules. After your appointment, you will want to avoid doing anything too strenuous for 24 hours and keep your head elevated as much as possible. It’s also important to avoid rubbing or touching your face too much during this time to keep the Botox where it needs to be. It may take up to a week for the full results of the Botox to take effect, and these results typically last between three to six months.
Is it safe to receive Botox from a dentist?
Dentists are experienced professionals when it comes to oral health and treating issues related to the teeth and gums, but they are also very knowledgeable when it comes to the jaw and facial muscles. Since Botox is primarily used in the face, visiting a dental office for Botox treatments makes sense. Dentists must also undergo special training to administer Botox, which ensures that treatments are both effective and safe. Our team would be happy to evaluate your specific situation to help you determine if Botox is the right treatment for you.Contact Us
