For years, Botox has been used as a fast and effective tool to make skin look tighter and more youthful. But in addition to the cosmetic benefits, Botox has been effective in helping to treat TMD, migraines and a high lip line. Dental One is now offering Cosmetic and Therapeutic Botox to our patients.
TMD & Migraines
Botox is an effective treatment for relieving pain as a result of TMD or migraines. To begin with, Botox is a muscle relaxer and can greatly reduce the intensity of the muscle contractions that contribute to TMD and facial pain for our patients. When your jaw muscles are strained, they contract which can lead to muscle spasm, pain, and soreness. Botox injections can help prevent the muscles from tensing around your jaw line.
High Lip Line
Traditionally, the treatment for a high lip line would most likely be surgery. Botox can offer a much less invasive option for patients and can help raise your gingival height to meet the lip line. With Botox and potentially a crown or bridge, we are able to establish a more symmetrical dental esthetic for your smile.
More and more, patients consider Botox to be the final step in completing their smile makeovers. Whether it’s receiving Botox to reduce visible lines or to alleviate jaw pain we believe function and esthetics are partners in achieving optimal health.
