Botox

Did you know that you could get Botox treatments at your dental office? It’s true! Botox certified qualified are able to administer the injections to their patients during their care appointments.

Dentists use Botox to treat cosmetic and dental needs like:

  • Crows feet
  • Frown lines
  • Stubborn wrinkles
  • TMJ symptoms

Not every dentist is qualified to administer Botox. Choosing a dentist that is, means you can treat a wider variety of cosmetic needs. Most of the time, Botox is combined with services like teeth whitening, veneers, or cosmetic bonding.

Why should you consider letting a Botox dentist administer the medication? Dentists have an intense understanding of the facial anatomy. Although their care is typically focused on the teeth, they also treat soft tissue in and around the mouth, as well as screen for pathology throughout the head and neck.

You might be familiar with the oral cancer screenings that your dentist conducts, and if you are, you know that your dentist looks for even the slightest abnormality in the surface of your tissues. When your Botox dentist applies the medication as direct, you can benefit from tremendous cosmetic results without having to schedule a separate appointment with a different care provider.

When used in conjunction with other types of cosmetic dental procedures, Botox allows dentists to improve the overall impact of your smile makeover.

Your smile says more about you than probably any other aspect of your appearance. White, vibrant looking teeth can take years off of the way you look. Why not even increase the impact by minimizing small lines and wrinkles with Botox? The next time you schedule a dental visit or smile makeover consultation, ask your Botox dentist about what Botox can do for you.
