Choosing Your Local Dentist for Botox and Dermal Fillers Thursday, 21 June 2018

Improving our patients’ total wellness begins with reversing the clock, including our ability to erase wrinkles, enhance lips, and provide anti-aging treatments and skin options.

What is Botox?

Botox is typically used around the mouth and eyes where smile lines develop and deepen over time. Botox is commonly used as a restorative measure, after lines and wrinkles have already formed. It also can be used as a preventative measure. The muscles used in facial expressions can be retrained before lines become etched in the skin. Botox is popular because it is nonsurgical, affordable, and effective cosmetic solution.

TMJ pain and bruxism can effectively be treated with Botox. The injections relax certain facial muscles, which stop the clenching associated with TMJ, facial pain, and tooth wear. Some patients are even able to stop wearing their splints. Aesthetically, it can slim the face by relaxing overdeveloped facial muscles. Bruxism can often lead to migraines, which can be instantly remedied by Botox.

How Dermal Fillers Return that Youthful Look

Dermal Fillers are another way to compliment your smile, restoring youthfulness. Placed under the skin, they instantly restore the skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. They can correct lines and scars, especially the vertical lines above and around the lips. Dermal Fillers are a popular alternative to surgical facelifts and are attractive due to their immediate results and minimal downtime. Fillers can also give lips fullness of patients who wish to correct thin lips or restore volume loss due to aging. Our lip enhancement focuses on creating a natural appearance while producing dramatic results!

Why choose a dentist for Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Ability to offer treatment in a completely painless manner; more training and knowledge of oral-facial areas; comprehensive knowledge of facial muscle expression dynamics; the most experienced practitioner for giving intra-oral injections; consideration of dental proportions for ideal results; trained and accredited to augment with latest injectable techniques; and clean, professional, convenient esthetic treatment and certified staff.

If you are concerned with any of these issues, Botox and Fillers may be effective treatments and provide the final puzzle piece to a picture perfect smile. Contact us for your consultation!
