For over two decades, Botox has been used to erase frown lines and smooth facial wrinkles. In fact, botox treatments are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States! This beauty “therapy” is now being offered in many dental offices, including Desert Hills Dental.
Dental Botox Uses
Not only can Dr. Staten help you smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles staring back at you in the mirror, but she can help improve your smile with the use of Botox.
If you suffer from TMJ, strategic placement of injections can help bring you some pain relief. That’s because essentially, Botox is a muscle relaxer so by reducing the intensity of muscle contractions that contribute to TMJ can significantly help some patients. (It’s important to note that the dosage amount is larger than when used for anti-aging therapy.)
As with any procedure, dental Botox is not for everyone. Dr. Staten will evaluate your case and determine what is the best method to proceed with. Besides, who knows your facial structure, mouth, and teeth better than your dentist?!
