Since few medical practitioners are more skilled and focused on treating conditions of the face and neck, it makes sense that more dentists are offering Botox injections for TMD/TMJ, therapeutic purposes, and cosmetic restoration. At Renken Dentistry, you can be sure your experience with Botox will always be safe and comfortable.
Botox Treatments in Dentistry
Botox therapy is used to relieve migraine pain and to treat symptoms of mild TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorders) or jaw tightening, as well as excessive sweating and acne scar reduction. We can also correct a gummy or crooked smile while maintaining your natural appearance.
Another great reason to choose Botox at Renken Dentistry is that the service is discreet. Walking out of a medical spa looking 10 years younger is a sure give-away, but no one will suspect anything if you get a little cosmetic enhancement while getting your dental work done. If you are considering Botox for cosmetic purposes, it is recommended that injections be administered prior to your dental procedures. This will allow our dentist to position your lip line in perfect alignment with your teeth for the best outcome.
What to Expect During Botox Procedures
Our Botox injections are quick and produce very little discomfort. Botox is injected with an extremely fine needle. Injections are so quick, most people say they hardly feel them at all. Also, you probably won’t need a pain reliever after treatment, but if you do, a simple over-the-counter product will work just fine. Of course, discomfort levels during treatment vary from person to person. The particular area of the face being treated will make a difference, too. Typically, treating the forehead (furrows and worry lines) and crow’s feet are reported to be the easiest. No matter where your particular area of concern is, our dentists are known to be gentle and caring and will make sure you are at your most comfortable at all times.
