THE BENEFITS OF BOTOX

Botox evens out lines around the eyes, mouth, and forehead by targeting specific muscles and enabling them to relax. This leaves you with a rejuvenated appearance for months.

Bruxism is the unconscious grinding and clenching of your teeth and jaw, especially during sleep. This leads to many uncomfortable symptoms, including headaches, pain, and even damage to the teeth. Botox can help relieve these symptoms by immobilizing the contracting muscles that cause excessive teeth grinding and clenching.

TMJ disorders involve the muscles, joints, and nerves of the jaw, and are linked to chronic myofascial pain and migraines. Botox can help ease the tension on these strained muscles, so the parts of your jaw work together in pain-free harmony.

THE BOTOX TREATMENT PROCESS

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your personal smile goals, and discuss how Botox treatments may be able to help you achieve your unique vision. Additionally, if you’re experiencing jaw pain, we’ll find out if Botox can help relieve your discomfort.

Once we’ve decided if Botox is a suitable fit, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that covers the initial set of injections. Botox treatment generally lasts between 3-6 months, so we’ll be sure to schedule any follow-up appointments for additional injections.

After cleaning and sanitizing the treatment site, a thin needle is used to inject Botox into the targeted areas. You and your dentist will decide if you require any numbing for the procedure to keep you comfortable and out of pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

ARE BOTOX RESULTS INSTANT?

Botox results are not instant. Although you may notice some change right away, (especially if it’s your first treatment), and a little bit more after 4-6 days, most patients see and feel the complete results of Botox injections after 10-14 days.

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?

Botox can usually last anywhere from 3-6 months before requiring another round of injections. Although they can last quite a while, the results are still not permanent and will require follow-up appointments and additional injections to maintain their effectiveness.

WILL BOTOX HELP MY TMJ DISORDER?

Botox has been shown to be effective in relieving patients of pain associated with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders. Although the direct cause of TMJ disorders can be hard to pinpoint, the symptoms often include pain or tenderness in the jaw or around the ear, headaches, pain while chewing, and even lockjaw in more extreme cases. Botox targets the TMJ muscles, causing them to stop contracting and relax, which often allows the whole TMJ system to realign and work in harmony, relieving you of your TMJ-related pain.

WHY SHOULD I GET BOTOX TREATMENTS FROM MY DENTIST?

Dentists are experts at more than just teeth. Not only do they have extensive knowledge of the face and jaw, but Botox can often complement many different dental treatments and procedures. For patients with TMJ disorders or bruxism, Botox may be used in conjunction with a nightguard to minimize pain and the effects of jaw clenching and teeth grinding. Botox can even be used to help patients’ mouths adjust to a new set of dentures!
