Botox/Dermal Fillers

We are excited to announce that we offer dental Botox® and dermal fillers! Our goal is to correct our patients’ smiles. We achieve this goal not only with dental treatments, but also with facial treatments.

We are able to enhance patients’ facial contours using Botox® and dermal fillers, as well as manage pain associated with TMD/TMJ and other disorders.

Botox® is a safe, effective FDA-approved medication most commonly used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of the muscles in the troubled areas. It is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected. Botox® can remove the wrinkles of time or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face.

Getting a Botox® injection is a minimally invasive procedure that allows patients to return to normal daily activities immediately afterward. If necessary, a topical anesthesia can be used before the Botox® is injected under the skin using a small needle.

Dermal fillers are smooth gels that are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting fillers underneath the skin, your skin can be completely rejuvenated, ultimately adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. This is a safe and effective treatment with little to no down-time.

Not only will Botox® and dermal fillers enhance your facial features, but they can also be used for other health purposes. For example, Botox® injections and dermal fillers have been used to successfully inhibit jaw clenching. The injections relax certain facial muscles which stop the clenching and associated pain. Some patients who suffer from TMJ pain or bruxism and obtain an injection are even able to stop wearing their splints.
