As we age, our skin changes.

Over time, repetitive movements of the facial muscles such as squinting and frowning cause loss of muscle volume and elasticity, and the force of gravity leads to unwanted wrinkles and folds in the skin.

Smooth your skin without surgery

It is now possible to smooth out these wrinkles and folds without surgery. Botox is a safe and non-invasive procedure that provides esthetic results and treats the signs of aging naturally, precisely, and non-surgically.

Therapeutic Uses of Botox

A growing number of dentists are now providing Botox (also known as BoNT/A) treatment for their patients for cosmetic and therapeutic uses that may benefit the oral and maxillofacial muscles, as well as to reduce signs of aging.

While the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes has gotten a lot of attention in a number of dental journal articles, Botox products are excellent products to use for dental therapeutic uses in a number of areas.

Botox is safe

The use of Botox therapy has been in use for many years. For trigger point injections, it makes much more sense to use the BoNT/A injections since results last up to three months. Plus, the injections help relieve the intensity of the muscle contractions caused by TMD.

Botox and TMD

80% of patients have some sort of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and need treatment.

TMD is just a clinical label for any pain of the jaw and facial muscles, which can be associated with headaches, earaches, cervical spine disorders, and general facial pain.
