Botox is a purified protein which is safely metabolised by the body with no permanent side effects. Most people have heard that Botox can smooth and soften facial lines, but are you aware that at Arbour Lake Dental Care, we also use it to help relieve jaw and face pain caused by tight and over-stressed muscles?
Are you suffering from jaw, face or neck pain?
A large cause of jaw, facial and neck pain is caused by the condition known as TMD. What are TMD and TMJ? The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) occurs because of issues with this joint or the muscles surrounding it. This can result in moderate to extreme pain but Botox in dentistry may be able to help alleviate the symptoms associated with TMD.
Do you or someone you love experience any of the following?
If you have answered “yes” to any of the above questions, Botox may be able to help with these issues. Often if these symptoms are left untreated an increase in pain and discomfort can arise and may even result in more serious dental health conditions.
Cosmetic Botox in dentistry
Botox can help with facial, jaw and neck pain and it can help smooth and soften facial lines. General dentists are very good at understanding your mouth, smile and seeing your face as one complete picture. It seems a natural fit for our patients to receive Botox treatments for facial wellness.
Botox is a proven method for reducing facial lines and wrinkles. The lines around your eyes can cause you to look tired or even upset. Reducing these lines may help you look happier, more alert and even more approachable.
As you get, older the corners of your mouth can start to droop, lines may begin to appear around your mouth as well as around our nose, eyes and forehead. Softening these lines with Botox can help to improve the overall smooth appearance of your face but it can also help improve your smile.
A beautiful smile can be more than just nice teeth. Perhaps you’ve invested in orthodontics, crowns or veneers to help in maintaining a beautiful smile. With Botox you can feel confident that rest of your smile matches your beautiful teeth.
