What is Botox?
Most people think of Botox and dermal fillers as only being used for cosmetic reasons. However, most dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of dental and oral conditions. Botox is safely injected into the area needing treatment and will help in reducing and eliminating both pain and discomfort. We will consult with you to determine if Botox or other types of fillers are right for you.
Why might Botox be needed?
Botox has safely been used in the medical industry for years. It has many different uses and is not just a cosmetic option for patients. Some of the more common uses for Botox and other dermal fillers in dentistry include:
- Treat TMJ disorders
- Help in reducing the look of a “gummy” smile
- Treat and reduce migraines
- Help in making dentures or partials more comfortable to wear
- Relaxes muscles in both the face and mouth
What makes you a good candidate for Botox?
Botox can be used to treat a variety of oral conditions. It may be necessary for treatment in our office if you suffer from a condition that would benefit from this particular type of injection. The injections are done safely by Dr. Patel and are carefully and strategically placed where they are most beneficial. We will discuss your options with you if you’re interested in receiving Botox as well as other dermal fillers.
What can be expected during the procedure for Botox?
You’ll need to come in for a consultation before we are able to administer Botox. We can help in determining if Botox is right for you and what to expect out of the procedure. Next, you’ll come into our office and have Botox injected in different areas of the face and mouth as needed. We will use a topical numbing agent to make the injections more comfortable. You will then be ready to go home and enjoy the effects of Botox and what it can do for your face and mouth.
