5 Advantages of Dental Botox
The cosmetic benefits of Botox are already well established, but dental botox uses are starting to gain serious momentum. This is because dentists are experts of the muscle and bone architecture of the face. Their training and experience is steeped in the facial muscles and structures. Their unique training and background equips them with the ability to achieve more precise and natural-looking results than other Botox providers. To properly correct lip lines, puckered chins, and upside down or gummy smiles, it’s important that only the right facial muscles are treated. Failure to do so can result in frozen, strange or awkward results.
What Is Botox?
Many people have heard of Botox before, and many know that it has something to do with removing fine lines or wrinkles. However, many people don’t actually know what Botox is. The name Botox is a registered trademark and name for botulinum toxin A. it is actually a substance that is related to botulism, which is a form of food poisoning. Although that’s surprising, botulinum toxin A has actually been found to help people, but aesthetically.
Botulinum toxin A is a neurotoxin (or neurotoxic protein) that is produced by a bacteria. To put it simply, scientists use that neurotoxin to improve looks, but in a way that will cause certain desired effects in those who use it. One of those effects is paralysis, but don’t let that worry you too much as this paralysis is planned. When someone receives an injection of Botox, the neurotoxins in this substance only temporarily paralyze muscles in that area. If you receive Botox injections on your forehead, then those muscles are temporarily paralyzed and won’t give you that line or wrinkle that you don’t want.
What Is Dental Botox?
Each year, more than 6 million people receive Botox treatments. Many receive these from a plastic surgeon or similar professional. We mentioned that you don’t have to worry about the paralysis that Botox gives you because it is a planned paralysis. That is something that only a professional should be doing. Who is the best person to handle a service such as this? A Dentist!
Dentists are experts of the muscle and bone architecture of the face. Their training and experience is steeped in the facial muscles and structures. They have trained for many years and have a background that equips them with the ability to achieve more precise and natural-looking results than other Botox providers. There are many providers out there, but not all have had extensive training, which is something you definitely want with a substance as delicate as Botox.
To properly correct lip lines, puckered chins, and upside down or gummy smiles, it’s important that only the right facial muscles are treated. Failure to do so can result in frozen, strange or awkward results. Dental botox is basically a Botox treatment done in a dental office, where you are receiving your treatment from someone trained in oral and maxillofacial health. Dental botox is the best and safest way to receive a Botox treatment.
Advantages of Dental Botox
With dental botox, we treat problems related to your oral health. Therapeutic dental botox offers relief for:
- Headache pain resulting from muscle tension in the head, face, and neck and/or TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Syndrome
- Persistent clenching and grinding of the teeth
- “Gummy” smiles due to over-retracted upper lips
- Upside-down smiles (as it takes more muscles to frown compared to smiling)
- Lip lines and puckered chins
As we mentioned, lines and wrinkles are temporarily paralyzed with dental botox so that you can enjoy a smooth complexion. Dental botox has also been found to be very beneficial and effective for pain that originates from oral health problems. TMJ is a common oral health problem that causes patients pain. This encompasses pain in the jaw or facial muscles. With dental botox, we can paralyze the muscles that hurt so that you are not in constant pain. Bruxism is the name for grinding and clenching the teeth. Dental botox can improve your symptoms by reducing the contractions of the mouth muscles involved in clenching and grinding. If you have any of the issues we listed above, you should see if dental botox could help your symptoms.
Receiving Professional Services
No matter what procedure or service you are seeking to help improve your body, we can’t stress how important it is to receive your care from a professional. Too many people look for services that are the cheapest they can find. However, the adage, “you get what you pay for” is quite true. If something is incredibly cheap (especially when it involves your health), then it’s probably not worth it.
The higher the quality, the more likely it is that the cost will be higher as well. That being said, you don’t have to break the bank to receive quality care for your health. We provide quality services that won’t break the bank and that are solely focused on helping your oral health and overall health be the best that it can be.
