Dentist in Franklin and Centerville, OH describes the use of Botox treatment
At K&E Advanced Dentistry, patients in the areas of Franklin and Centerville, OH are welcome to ask about a variety of treatments available in the practice. Dr. Mamta Kori and her team welcome patients to visit her and the other dentists in the practice to learn about solutions that may be used for cosmetic and dental concerns, including injections of Botox.
Our team explains Botox
When patients hear of Botox, they immediately think of cosmetic use. However, Botox can also be used in medical situations. Botox has been used for many years in the field of medicine for conditions such as cervical dystonia and overactive bladder. The medication, which includes botulinum toxin type A, is used to reduce muscle contractions. This makes it helpful in more than one way at our dental practice.
- Medical – patients who have conditions such as TMJ/TMD, which causes pain and malfunction of the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles, may experience discomfort in the area. By injecting Botox into the muscles, patients can be relieved of the tightness that they experience. In addition, it can help patients who have temporomandibular joint disorder and experience chronic headaches and migraines due to the tension in the jaw area.
- Cosmetic – Botox is best known for its cosmetic use. Botox is injected directly into the muscles of the face to help in addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that develop from tension in the muscles. It can be used for the treatment of crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead folds.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Patients who have concerns that can be addressed with Botox injections are welcome to book a consultation appointment with the team at K&E Advanced Dentistry to determine if they are appropriate candidates for injections. This may include a check into one’s medical history and determining if patients are allergic to the ingredients used in Botox injections.
How long do Botox injections last?
Whether Botox is used for cosmetic or medical purposes, many patients find that the injections will last approximately six months before reinjection is necessary. This makes it perfect to obtain at a dental practice when patients visit twice a year for cleanings and examinations. Our practice is committed to helping patients with not only the health of their smiles, but the appearance of their smiles as well. Botox provides many solutions for our patients to consider when they are faced with specific dental and cosmetic concerns.
What can I expect during my Botox appointment?
Many patients choose to have Botox injections performed at their routine dental visits. We have patients relax in the treatment chair and discuss the areas where the injections will be administered. Patients will experience some minor discomfort during the injection process, but this is short-term and well-tolerated by many of our patients. After the injections are complete, patients will not notice immediate results. The skin around the injection area may be red for the remainder of the day, but this will resolve on its own. Over the course of a week, patients will experience the benefits of Botox. Patients with TMJ/TMD will see a reduction in their headaches or the severity of their headaches, while patients who have used Botox for cosmetic purposes will see the fine lines, wrinkles, and folds slowly resolve. Once the results have been achieved, patients can expect to enjoy them for several months before needing to come into our practice for further injections. Botox often meets and even exceeds the expectations of our patients.
