So, Botox is a great adjunct to a dental office. Actually, I got involved with it because I was looking at other ways to help with TMJ and TMD issues. Essentially, Botox is a ... it affects the muscle, okay? And a lot of TMJ issues are muscle-related. But, by the way, muscles also cause wrinkles, so as part of the full package, you can do wrinkles, help smile lines, and help relieve headaches, and TMJ and TMD problems. So, we like Botox, we like Juvederm, and a lot of patients are really happy that we can do both, and they can come to their dentist, get their teeth cleaned, and get their Botox at the same time.
Dr. Swartzentruber has completed advanced training for both treatments through the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. He knows just how to help by:
- Improving your appearance with Botox and Juvéderm as cosmetic dentistry options
- Applying treatment specifically for therapeutic reasons
Call 334-600-1423 for a consultation with Dr. Swartzentruber at our Montgomery, AL dentist office. He’ll discuss your concerns and expectations, then determine if either treatment is right for you.
Providing Your New Look With Botox Or Juvéderm
Botox is a comfortable, no-fuss treatment to reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other facial aging issues. Your facial muscle structure isn’t changed at all. The treatment just blocks the signal that causes your facial muscles to contract, which is why lines and other cosmetic issues can occur.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that benefits your look by providing more volume where it’s needed. You may be unhappy with your cheeks, which can sag or appear “flattened” over time. Your lips may also appear thin and lack their original fullness. This treatment can add contouring to your face, providing you with a more youthful look that complements your smile.
Relieving TMJ Issues With Botox
Botox relaxes the muscles in your face, which makes it an excellent source of relief when it comes to TMJ issues. TMJ discomfort usually occurs due to stress in your facial and jaw muscles, which results in headaches and other problems. By receiving Botox, you can benefit from more relaxed facial and jaw muscles. This will help you feel better each day and may prevent you from relying on pain medications.
