Did you know that you can get Botox at your dentist? Red Bank Smiles offers Botox dentistry for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. Botox injections – which are made of botulinum neurotoxin proteins – are a safe, temporary way to relax the muscles around your mouth and jaw. To learn more about Botox and the benefits it might have for you, please schedule an appointment at Red Bank Smiles.
Uses and Benefits of Botox Dentistry
Botox relaxes your overworked facial muscles. This makes it a great way to relieve pain and tension caused by certain disorders. For example, Botox is a popular treatment method for patients suffering from TMJ disorders and chronic teeth clenching and grinding. It’s also sometimes used to retrain muscles for dentures and other restorations. Because dentists are highly knowledgeable about the function and anatomy of dental muscles, they’re well-qualified to administer Botox safely and effectively.
In addition to medical benefits, Botox can also be used to enhance your appearance. It can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, including the marionette lines on the sides of your mouth as well as “smoker’s lines” at the top of the lip. Botox is also great for lifting up the corners of the mouth and for correcting gummy smiles. While the effects are temporary and only last a few months, Botox can be a big confidence booster for many people.
Most patients schedule a private appointment for Botox. But you also have the option of making it a group event. Invite all your friends and family to get cosmetic Botox, too, and book an in-office Botox Party. Depending on the size of your party, there may be group discounts available. If you want, we can also arrange food and drinks to help make it a fun social outing.
Not sure if Botox injections are right for you? The team at Red Bank Smiles will be happy to have a conversation about it with you and discuss what other treatment options may be available. With Botox, there’s usually very little pain involved, if any, and the results typically last for three months. For more information, come in for a consultation.
