Botox is an injectable that you might know best for its ability to treat wrinkles and fine lines, specifically dynamic wrinkles that appear due to muscle movements. You might be surprised to hear that Botox has clinical applications apart from the cosmetic realm, including a few that dentists provide.
Botox uses a neuromodulator called botulinum toxin, which temporarily disables communications between muscles and motor nerves. This means that while the drug is active, the targeted muscles cannot flex even involuntarily.
LA Dentists Group provides Botox for a number of purposes and can guide you through the treatment process during your consultation. If they recommend Botox to you, they let you know how the drug will benefit you and help you reach your goals.
They carefully plan your treatment and map out the injections before conducting the procedure.
LA Dentists Group uses Botox for the following purposes:
Botox can treat several common wrinkles across your face, specifically wrinkles that appear where your skin creases when you make facial expressions. These tend to appear around the lips, on the forehead, and between or next to your eyes.
If you grind your teeth often, TMJ is a possible consequence. It causes jaw pain, clicking, and dysfunction. Botox relaxes your jaw muscles.
There are a few ways Botox can enhance your smile, including treating a gummy smile and erasing lip lines.
The duration of your Botox results depends on what you’re using it to treat. Most people can expect Botox effectiveness for 3-6 months, but you can return to the LA Dentists Group for follow-up injections as soon as you notice the results diminish from your first round of injections.
The team personalizes each of your treatments and can repeat the technique, so that you get the same successful results you’ve already experienced.
