Did you know that your dentist can provide Botox® treatment? Dentists study the musculoskeletal structure of the face, which is also connected to injectables like Botox. We can administer Botox to help patients address fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is a cosmetic treatment that creates smoother skin when injected into key areas of the face. We often recommend Botox to patients who want to complete a smile makeover. Patients with TMJ disorders can also benefit from Botox treatment in our Leland, North Carolina, dental office. We welcome patients to discover what Botox can do for them, whether they want to address TMJ headaches or benefit from smoother, more youthful skin.
Botox in Leland, North Carolina
At Waterford Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer Botox treatment in addition to regular cosmetic dental care. Botox can treat frown lines, crow’s feet, lipstick lines, forehead wrinkles, and other facial wrinkles. Because Botox is a neurotoxin, it acts upon nerve signals that make the facial muscles contract. When we inject Botox into a facial muscle, the muscle relaxes.
We ensure that patients feel comfortable during Botox treatment. Before injecting Botox, we apply a numbing cream to the treated area. Treatment is also quick, as we target the areas patients want to address. Botox can last for six or more months, and we welcome patinets to receive touch-ups in our of
Botox for TMJ Disorders
Patients with TMJ disorders often experience pain in their facial muscles. Orofacial pain comprises face, jaw, head, and neck pain. TMD patients experience orofacial pain because of the joints that connect the jaw bone to the skull. If under stress or injured, these temporomandibular joints can cause problems like headaches, jaw pain, tooth wear, teeth clenching, and teeth grinding.
When we inject Botox into the facial muscles, they relax. Injecting Botox for TMJ patients works in the same way. If we inject Botox in the areas of the face where patients experience pain, they can feel relief from their symptoms. Patients who have not found relief from jaw pain, tension headaches, or other TMD symptoms often benefit from Botox injections directly after they receive treatment.
