Magnolia Dentistry is proud to offer Botox® injections at our dental practice. This treatment is excellent for helping patients feel better about themselves and reducing pain due to certain health conditions. Botox® is completely safe, and our gentle dentist will ensure your comfort during your treatment.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a drug that treats wrinkles and facial creases by temporarily freezing the muscles where it’s injected. When you move your facial muscles, you may develop dynamic wrinkles around your mouth, forehead, and eyes over time. A Botox® injection blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This prevents them from contracting and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Reasons For Botox® Use In Dentistry
Botox® is more than an anti-aging solution. It can be used in dentistry to treat many other health problems. One of the most common reasons people choose this treatment is to stop bruxism, or teeth grinding. Over time, the pressure can lead to headaches, TMJ pain, and worn-down teeth.
Botox can also address the following health concerns:
- Gummy smiles
- TMD symptoms
How Long Do The Effects Last?
After getting your Botox® injection, you may notice the full effects after about a week or two. A typical treatment will last for three to six months before you need another injection. Avoid rubbing the area to prevent the Botox® from spreading and impacting the results of your treatment.
