We offer Botox treatment at our office. Botox and is used by dentists to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders that cause pain around the jaw area and face (Botox relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the grinding movement of the jaw that can produce headaches and pain). Botox is also used to smooth away wrinkles. The areas that Botox is commonly used for smoothing of facial wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes, and around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips.
Dentists are uniquely suited for providing Botox treatment. We are skilled at assessing the balance and overall esthetics of the face. We have had extensive training in the anatomy of the head and neck and every day we inject cranial nerves in sensitive areas of the head. Our technical skills have been finely honed. Many of us as general practitioners have taken in-depth training that equips us to provide intricate procedures such as these. We no longer simply drill teeth and treat gums. When properly trained, there is arguably no better practitioner to provide Botox.
