Benefits of Botox From Your Dentist

St. Augustine FL General Dentist

Going to the dentist to get Botox may seem like a crazy idea. However, there are a number of valid reasons that make trusting your dentist for Botox a good idea. Your dentist can give you the safety assurance and ideal results you need when turning back the hands of time.

Botox delivers proven results for addressing the signs of facial aging, including wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), the mouth (marionette lines and nasiolabial folds) and the forehead (glabella lines). Botox injections work by blocking the transmitter of the motor nerves that stimulate the targeted facial muscle. This inhibits these muscles from contracting and forming wrinkles in the skin, as it would while squinting, smiling, etc. After about three to ten days, the skin will appear smooth and wrinkles may be reduced or eliminated. Botox is not a permanent solution and lasts approximately 3 to 4 months for most patients.

Many patients choose Botox or dermal filler injections as the perfect compliment to their cosmetic dental service. For example, reducing your wrinkles and whitening your teeth in a single office visit can be a timesaving advantage that gives the ultimate in rejuvenation.

Not only can Botox be used to enhance your smile makeover, but also delivers proven results for clinical use in dentistry. Patients who suffer from teeth grinding and/or TMJ disorders can benefit greatly from Botox injections. In addition, Botox can help some patients adjust to their dentures or orthodontic appliance by allowing them to retrain their facial muscles.

When it comes to offering Botox, an experienced and trained cosmetic dentist is best. They carry the talent and artistry it takes to create the most balanced appearance as well as the extensive training required to understand the intricate facial nerves and muscles. Whether you are considering Botox for functional benefits or to frame your new smile after a cosmetic procedure, you can trust Salt Run Dental for excellence.
