What is Botox and how does it work?

Botox is a neuromodulator that works to temporarily relax muscle contractions. In addition to helping to reduce the look of wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and on the forehead, it can also relax the muscles involved in teeth grinding and clenching, thereby decreasing the force generated and relieving headaches and tension that are caused by bruxism and TMJ. It can also be used to treat a “gummy smile,” which is a common cosmetic issue wherein “small” teeth make a patient’s gums look larger in comparison.

How is it administered?

After our experienced and certified practitioner has a thorough understanding of your needs and goals, we will review your health history and complete a comprehensive assessment to develop a treatment that’s unique to you. Assuming you’d like to move forward with treatment, our doctor will clean, disinfect, and numb the area(s) to be injected. We will also provide you with after-care details to follow in the hours following your visit.

Who is a good candidate for Botox?

While many patients will be candidates, it’s important that you are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing, and have realistic expectations of the outcome. Of course, it’s important to undergo a thorough consultation to determine your candidacy.
