For years, Botox has gotten a bad rap. But, when it comes to Jupiter dental care, Botox can leave patients looking and feeling better with just a few small injections. From wrinkles to temporomandibular joint disorder, our experienced dentist can improve the lives of patients in little to no time. So, if you have an interest in Botox, here’s what you should know before coming in:
What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription medication that is used as an injection. It blocks nerve impulses, reducing the activity. In a safe and sterile manner, we inject Botox into key area points to get the desired result.
How Do Dentists Use Botox?
Beyond the look of your gums and teeth, Botox can help dental patients in a variety of ways. First of all, we can use Botox in the traditional way. This means injecting it to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond that, we use Botox with some patients who experience TMJ/TMD, teeth grinding, and lockjaw.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
Botox comes with an array of benefits past the aesthetic. Those benefits include but are not limited to:
- Reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimizing TMJ/TMD symptoms
- Minimizing symptoms of bruxism, aka teeth grinding
- Reducing headaches from TMJ and teeth grinding
- Younger appearance
- Minimizing lockjaw
