How Botox and Dermal Fillers Work For Cosmetic Dentistry
Botox has been appearing in the dental industry more and moreover the years. However, it still comes as a surprise to many patients. It got its start in the cosmetics industry before it moved into the medical sphere. The successful use of Botox to treat various medical conditions led to growing interest in the dental industry. It quickly became evident that Botox was effective at treating numerous dental conditions. Bruxism and TMJ Disorder are just two cases where it has proven beneficial. It’s also been used to aid in training muscles for denture fittings.
Shortly afterward, it became clear that Botox was useful for cosmetic dentistry as well. Some of the treatment options involving Botox include.
- Gummy Smile – Some patients experience concerns over excessive gum showing in their smiles. Botox injected in the upper lip can reduce the appearance of gums when smiling by reducing lip motion.
- Wide Jaw Lines – When the masseter muscle of the jaw is causing the appearance of a wide jawline, Botox can help. The reduction in muscle mass that results slims the profile of the jaw. Botox can achieve this through dental therapy or as an aesthetic treatment.
- Wrinkles, Lines, Creases – Facial wrinkles can often be reduced through the use of Botox. This treatment lowers stress in the muscles, induces relaxation in the skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and lines as a result.
Dermal fillers play an important role in improving your smile as well. As we age, our mouths develop creases and lines. These lines and creases can become worse over time, but dermal fillers can help reduce their appearance. Fillers work by reinvigorating skin, encouraging collagen growth, and providing fullness to the areas affected by these creases. While these treatments are not permanent, they are inexpensive and can be reapplied as needed.
