When it comes to facial aesthetics, most of us don't like wrinkles on our face. They are often a reminder of how quickly time is passing, and if we could get an opportunity to remove that reminder, chances are most of us would take it. Botox is that opportunity.
How it Works
Made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, Botox has been used as a non-surgical cosmetic treatment to help temporarily improve the look of wrinkles and frown lines for years. While a big part of those lines come with age, some of it is caused by our facial expressions. To help straighten them out, this natural, purified protein is administered by injecting it into the affected area, giving significant result with little to no side effects.
In the recent years in many cities around the country, dentists have integrated Botox procedures in addition to their usual work. While at first glance it might seem an unusual option, there are many reasons why your dentist is the exact person who should be in charge of your Botox.
Advantages of Botox by your Dentist
Dentists are uniquely suited to provide you with Botox treatment. While your dentist's main goal is to preserve your dental health, the aesthetics side comes hand in hand with it. Protecting or insuring your best smile is always a priority, and adding an additional step with the same physician by doing a dental Botox procedure when working on your mouth is a logical move.
Botox is already used as an alternative treatment for temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) and the jaw pain that is associated with it. An injection of Botox into the afflicted facial muscles can relieve TMD and jaw tension for many patients, and this procedure is already handled by dentists. As a result working effectively and precisely with Botox is not a new procedure for your dentist.
