New-Age Dental Techniques
Using BOTOX and Dermal Fillers

Traditionally known for its use in facial cosmetic procedures, BOTOX has become a widespread and functional application for a variety of dental procedures in recent years. For example, patients suffering from high lip lines may find that BOTOX relaxes the oral muscles to help relocate the lip to a lower position, thus creating a natural, more esthetically pleasing smile. Likewise, dermal fillers and smile line fillers such as BOTOX can offer tremendous corrective results for those suffering from increased wrinkles, sagging and other visible signs of aging that affect the contour of your natural facial lines. In short, our doctor’s extensive experience in dental BOTOX and dermal filler applications can help bring out a brighter, more vibrant you!

Worried About the Potential Side Effects of BOTOX?

If you’re like most people, one of the first things you probably visualize when you hear the word “BOTOX” is tight, stretched, awkwardly frozen facial features from plastic surgery operations gone horribly wrong. You may have also heard that BOTOX injections are painful, potentially toxic and/or make visible lines and wrinkles worse after the effects of the injection wear off. These rumors couldn’t be further from the truth, which is that dental BOTOX injections are safe and effective, and they allow patients to enjoy a full range of facial movements and expressions. BOTOX is also largely pain-free, especially when topical numbing agents are used. Lastly, BOTOX is an FDA-approved application for a variety of cosmetic procedures, meaning it is entirely safe and non-toxic. Whether you’re suffering from painful TMJ disorder, an unattractive high lip line, or dental disorders such as grinding or clenching of the jaw, BOTOX may very well be the simple and pain-free solution you’re looking for to achieve your perfect smile!
