While most people associate dentists with teeth, we are also experts in the head, face and neck. Botox therapy, used for over 21 years for smoothing facial wrinkles, is the perfect complement to cosmetic dentistry and helps with other dental health issues too!
- TMJ Treatment – botox is a muscle-relaxer, and when used at half the dose for facial wrinkle smoothing treatment, reduces the intensity fo the muscle contractions that contribute to TMJ and facial pain.
- Gummy Smile – Botox can reduce how much gum you show when you smile. Botox therapy combined with wrinkle fillers weaken the muscles surrounding the lip so they cannot raise the lip as high as before, while you still have the same ability to speak, chew, and kiss as before treatment.
- Dentures – Botox can help people get used to new dentures, especially patients who had been without teeth for a long time.
- As people get older, the corners of the mouth begin to turn down. Botox can be used to relax these muscles, raising the corners of the mouth, and of course, it’s great for those wrinkles around the mouth.
