TMJ and many migraine headaches are caused by jaw clenching and grinding the teeth, so pain relief often comes very quickly to patients who visit our office for botox and fillers. There are some other medical applications for Botox that include helping patients adjust to dentures or in cases where facial muscles need to be retrained after a procedure.
The effect of relaxing muscle fibers in the face also provides patients with a number of cosmetic benefits. Botox is commonly used to smooth facial wrinkles between the eyes, on the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes. These are areas where many people hold tension in their face, which causes wrinkles to develop.
Dermal fillers are used to add volume to the face in areas where collagen loss causes wrinkles to deepen. Fillers are injected under the skin, eliminating wrinkle lines and making the area appear fuller. In turn, you feel more attractive, younger, and experience improved confidence.
Your treatment is unique to you, but most Botox treatments we perform take from 15 to 30 minutes. If you require more injections it may take a little longer. When your dentist performs your initial exam, they will be able to tell you how long your procedure will take.
Pain is something we all experience differently, so there is no way to know how you will experience your Botox injection. However, most patients experience little to no pain. If you’re more prone to pain, we can administer a numbing cream in the area before the injection is given.
One of the greatest advantages of using your dentist for Botox and dermal filler injections is the fact that we are facial experts. We know exactly where to place the injection to maximize its effectiveness and minimize your pain.
First, we can provide you with anesthesia to the injection area before the procedure begins. Many patients often complain about the lack of anesthesia when receiving Botox and dermal filler treatments from other health professionals. Second, treatments provided by your dentist are more affordable and far more convenient.
Your dentist is a facial specialist. While the health of your smile is always paramount, much of what we do focuses on how you look, because nothing makes a smile look better than confidence. Botox and dermal filler treatments are yet another way to boost confidence. For many others, they are the best and most effective way to alleviate facial pain.
