Botox has emerged into the world of dentistry! In past years, Botox has been used as a form of plastic surgery to help reduce lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox is a common name for botulinum toxin, which comes in the form of a purified protein, according to the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
However, the effects Botox has for common dental problems such as TMJ and bruxism, have proven to be successful in reducing the intensity of the muscle contractions and pain, offering a younger look and tremendous relief. That is why we are proud to announce that we offer Botox as a safe and effective treatment depending on your dental needs.
It generally takes 10-14 days to take full effect. Once it has taken full effect you can expect it to last for approximately four to six months. As
the neurotoxin wears off you will gradually feel fine muscle control of the area return with the treated lines and wrinkles.
If you have questions about Botox, and how it can help you, or you would like to schedule a free consultation, please feel free to call us at
