Benefits Of Getting Botox At The Dentist

Botox freezes facial muscles, preventing them from contracting. This prevents wrinkles and fine lines that form from making certain repetitive facial expressions. By preventing the muscle contractions, you prevent the muscles from making expressions that cause these wrinkles. 

Dermal fillers create volume to replenish sunken in, sagging or low elasticity regions of the face. This can plump up lips, cheeks, and reduce eye bags. Best of all, this treatment can also be used to relieve migraines, reduce sweating, treat TMJ, and prevent teeth grinding. 

A few injections into the forehead, temple and jaw muscles relax the muscles responsible for clenching and grinding. Dentists are very familiar with facial anatomy and have extensive training in oral and maxillofacial treatments. Dentists are trained professionals equipped with advanced tools, experience, and precision to target the correct muscles.

You do not want to choose any random person to carry out Botox or filler treatments, as this can result in paralyzing the wrong portions of the face, administering too much, or causing unwanted side effects.

What To Expect During The Botox or Filler Process

Very tiny needles are going to be used to administer a specific amount of Botox or filler into your face. While you may feel a slight stinging sensation, it is not significantly painful. We can numb the area with a cold compress or an anesthetic cream before injecting the site to reduce discomfort.

Your face will be cleaned before injection. We will mark the specific areas of the face that are going to receive injections. After numbing the area, we will inject the skin with Botox or filler. The markings will then be wiped away and you can carry on with your day like normal. With Botox, you mustn’t lay down or massage your face for the next 6 hours.

Do not engage in activities that will make you sweat, don’t wash your face or wear makeup. After injecting dermal fillers, the dentist may massage them into your lips if necessary. Do not massage the area unless directed. You’ll need to avoid sun exposure and drinking alcohol for the next 24 hours. Do not sleep on the side of your face.

Is Botox Safe?

Yes, Botox is FDA-approved and considered completely safe when administered by a trained professional. You are in good hands when you choose our Sarasota dentists for Botox injections because we have received extensive education and hands-on training in targeting specific facial muscles, general facial anatomy, and how to precisely inject. 

What Is Botox Used To Treat?

Botox is used to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Common problem areas include crow’s feet, forehead lines, smile lines, and marionette lines. However, it can also be used to relieve migraines, treat TMJ and Bruxism, minimize overactive sweat glands, correct a gummy smile, reduce eye twitching, and help a lazy eye.
