Botox at the Dentist!?
A lot of folks are still unaware of this fairly new relationship between Botox and dentistry. What does a dentist know about facial aesthetics? As it turns out, a lot. Dentists are experts in the entire myofascial region, including your teeth, gums, jaws, face, head, and neck. Plus, we’re already highly skilled at giving precision and painless injections in these delicate facial areas, and with the help of dental blocks (local anesthetic), we can provide a more comfortable and pain-free experience from the comfort of your dental home. But wait… there’s more! Aside from treating fine lines and wrinkles, Botox serves another amazing purpose as well. Botox can actually be used to treat chronic pain associated with TMJ dysfunction and may even be able to prevent migraines before they start.
By inhibiting the micro muscle contractions that contribute to this pain and tension, Botox can be used effectively for treating and even preventing chronic headaches and migraines, and tooth pain that’s caused by the head and neck muscles. What a relief!
When used at a younger age, Botox can actually help relax the muscles so they are used less frequently, therefore becoming less pronounced over the years than they would be without Botox. Botox allows your body’s natural collagen to remain healthy and intact, so you can keep your natural radiance around for years to come.
We’re also happy to provide dermal fillers to plump up lips and supplement facial lines, folds, and creases for a more supple, youthful glow—all from the comfort, convenience, and discretion of your dental home. There’s no need to seek out a facial aesthetics specialist or cosmetic surgeon, we would be happy to provide all your Botox and dermal filler needs right here at Veranda Dentistry.
