What is Botox?

Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that reduces muscle contractions under the skin around the eyes, nose, and mouth. These ongoing contractions under the skin lead to the increasing visibility of lines and wrinkles as we age. When they are significantly diminished with Botox injections, the skin begins to have a smoother appearance.

Botox at the Dentist: what to expect

Our patients enjoy the benefits of receiving Botox treatment in our Burlington dental office. Our dentists have the comprehensive knowledge of facial musculoskeletal structure and experience with placing injections to offer natural-looking results. This is an important factor in how Botox will affect your appearance and meet your expectations.

After a discussion of your health history and cosmetic goals, we will recommend a treatment plan to meet your needs. Our dentists work with you to strategically place Botox injections for optimal outcomes.

The process for placing Botox injections is relatively simple and painless. We will clean and sterilize the area(s) to be treated and use a fine needle to place injections. Once treatment is complete, you can resume your daily activities. It is recommended that you avoid laying flat or reclining for several hours after your injections to minimize bruising and swelling. Our team will provide any additional after-care instructions to ensure you experience optimal results from your treatment with Botox.

Botox for TMJ

Botox can be used to treat the symptoms of TMJ disorders, often known as therapeutic Botox. Placed strategically into the jaw muscles, Botox can relax tension by minimizing ongoing contractions. Patients receiving Botox for TMJ pain often experience relief from discomfort and improved jaw mobility. Our dental care team can discuss your oral health, the severity of TMJ symptoms, and expected results for your consideration.

When using to treat TMJ, Botox may be combined with the recommended use of a night guard and jaw exercises. The goal is to reduce muscle tension in the jaw and allow for a more normal, relaxed bite.

Botox FAQs

Is Botox treatment painful?

Most patients will experience a slight “pinching” sensation when injections are placed, which is momentary. After treatment, minor tenderness, redness, or swelling at injection sites is typical and this will diminish in the following 24-48 hours.

When will I see results after Botox injections?

You may notice changes in your appearance in the first day or two and maximum results appear within 30 days.

How long do Botox injections last?

Most patients will enjoy the results of their treatment for four to six months. Another key benefit of receiving Botox treatment from one of our dentists is the ability for us to monitor your results when you visit for dental care every 6 months. This is typically when you may need or want a touch-up treatment to maintain your skin’s smoother appearance.
