All About Botox
Botox is a treatment derived from the botulinum toxin, which relaxes muscles. Botox is used to treat a myriad of conditions, including those involving physical appearance and pain.
To Improve Physical Appearance
You can help your overall smile come together by using Botox to treat the following conditions:
- Lines and wrinkles: Facial wrinkles become increasingly common with age. Whether you want to look younger or you’re under a lot of stress and worried about frown lines, you may want those lines smoothed out.
- Gummy smile: If your lips are positioned really high so that a lot of gum shows when you smile, Botox can relax your lip line and improve the aesthetics of your smile.
To Reduce Pain
Dentists are uniquely positioned to solve pain in the facial area because of their studies about the mouth and its surrounding features. Botox can be used to treat the following problems:
- TMJ: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is pain in the jaw that is typically related to stress. By relaxing the muscles with Botox, you can relieve the associated pain.
- Bruxism: Bruxism refers to clenching or grinding your teeth. While wearing a nightguard can help mitigate the symptoms of grinding your teeth, Botox can help you stop altogether.
Even if you don’t have any of the above conditions, Botox treatment may still benefit you. Contact our office to see what Botox can offer you.
