Botox Treatment

Botox is known for its ability to minimize facial wrinkles and lines, thus portraying a younger appearance. Botox cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily make frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet lines look better in adults. Botox can also be used to treat several orofacial conditions as part of a comprehensive dental treatment plan.

At Maplewood Dental Associates, we’re excited to now offer this groundbreaking treatment. We’ve completed the required certification courses and can safely administer Botox to our patients. Call or contact us today to see if Botox treatment is right for you!

Botox Uses in Dentistry

When receiving Botox injections as part of regular dental care, a small dose is given that lasts temporarily. Within a few hours of injection, Botox attaches to the nerve endings that control the affected facial muscle. Over the next several days, it works to block the nerve signals that prompt muscles to contract, thus relaxing them. It continues for about three or four months when another dose can be administered.

In dentistry, Botox can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • High lip lines (gummy smile)
  • Teeth grinding
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems

Benefits of Botox in Dentistry

Its minimally invasive nature makes Botox a prime candidate for dental offices to use in tandem with other six-month visit procedures. Neither extensive prep nor lengthy recovery are involved, so you can continue your everyday activities. Training and education are required for administration, so you can be confident that the injections will be placed correctly and safely. Most importantly, you’ll finally experience relief from your discomfort.
