Botox® treatments have skyrocketed in the world of cosmetics because of how well they help patients keep a youthful appearance. Since the late 1970s, Botox® treatments have only been administered by dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Now, dental offices all over the US are beginning to offer Botox® as a mainstream treatment.
Dental Botox® treatments are growing more and more popular because of their high success rate. With our training and experience, Premier dentists can offer patients a plethora of new kinds of dental services using Botox®.
Bruxism, jaw clenching, and teeth grinding may be significantly reduced by Botox®, which limits the force of muscle contractions used to carry out these oral motions. This treatment can replace a nighttime mouth guard.
Patients suffering from Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) may experience significantly reduced symptoms from Botox® injections. Botox® treatment is meant to relax the hyperactive muscles, making for less or no pain.
Patients with a “gummy smile” may receive a temporary high lip line reduction using Botox®. The injections relax the lip muscles. This creates a lower and more aesthetically pleasing smile without the need for an invasive procedure such as crown lengthening or gingival surgery.
Edentulous patients may experience a comfortable shift to new dentures with Botox®, where the injections relax the muscles around the dentures. This can make the transition easy and more successful for the patient.
With these uses for Botox® injections in the dental field, treatment options for dental patients are becoming more numerous and advanced. With dentists all over America mastering maxillofacial health through Botox®, this versatile treatment option is accessible to more patients. It’s safe, affordable, and non-permanent.
