If you’ve heard about Botox and are curious about what it can do for you, there are a lot of benefits to getting the treatment and getting it directly from your dentist. Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment that is used to smooth lines and wrinkles on the face. It is used in various areas of the face, but it’s most commonly used on the forehead and around the eyes. Many people don’t realize that they can get Botox treatments from their dentists, but it’s a great place to go to receive it for many reasons. If you’re interested in getting a Botox cosmetic treatment, we’re available to serve you at The Center for Family & Implant Dentistry.
Prevent and Treat Signs of Aging
As people get older, their faces tend to get wrinkled and to develop fine lines. This is caused by a number of changes to the skin that happen over time. One reason for this is that the skin makes less college as we get older. It’s also because of muscles that pull at the skin in different directions. This is caused by a lot of use of those muscles. Many people aren’t happy with their wrinkles, or they don’t want to develop any, and they turn to Botox to help them. It can be used to prevent wrinkles from forming as well as to treat them once they’ve already developed. The treatments calm down specific muscles so that they aren’t pulling on the skin anymore and creating lines and wrinkles. It’s a powerful way to smooth the face and create a more youthful look. If you’re unhappy with wrinkles, Botox can be a great way to have more self-confidence.
You’re used to going to the dentist for exams and treatments as needed. Why not get more from the office? The dentist can give you your Botox cosmetic treatments so that you don’t have to track down another place to go. You won’t have to do a lot of research to find a good place to go for Botox. You can go to a place that you’re already familiar with to get the treatments. The dentist can also answer your questions about the treatments and talk to you about how they are administered. Why change it to a new place that you might not like when you could go to an office that you’re already familiar with? It’s a pleasant atmosphere with a whole team of people to help you and make sure that you’re comfortable.
Dentists Have Training in Administering Injections
Dentists have a lot of medical training, and they have an enormous amount of training and experience with giving injections. Injections are a common part of dental treatments, and Botox is a series of injections. Why go somewhere for your Botox when you don’t know what kind of training they have? Many people administer Botox with little training and without the type of experience that dentists have. This may not create the effects that you’re looking for. With extensive training, the dentist can give you this treatment with precision so that you get the changes you’re looking for in your skin. And when you go to a dentist for the treatments, you can be confident that they know a lot about the process and can answer all of your questions. They also have a well-equipped office that has everything needed for giving injections.
Get Long-Lasting Results
When you get Botox injections, they calm specific muscles to smooth the face. This effect lasts anywhere from four to six months before you need another treatment. However, there are a few long-term results that come from getting Botox. When you have the treatment, it keeps you from using the muscles that are causing the wrinkles. This means that you aren’t making the wrinkles get worse during this time when they normally would be progressing. The injections block the muscles from being used, and this gets you out of the habit of using those muscles. If you often frown or make other facial movements that cause wrinkles, getting out of that habit can make a lot of difference in your wrinkles, even after the Botox treatments have worn off. And as you continue to get your treatments, the treatments will start to last longer over time.
Treatment for Dental Problems
It’s also possible to get Botox for dental health and other reasons. It is sometimes used by dentists to help you with problems such as teeth grinding, TMJ disorders, and migraines. It can also help if you have a lot of gum tissue showing when you smile. There are many therapeutic uses for Botox, and your dentist knows just how to administer it to help with those problems.
If you’ve been thinking about getting Botox, going to the dentist to get it is a great choice. When you want these treatments for wrinkles or for dental problems, call us at The Center for Family & Implant Dentistry to find out more and get your appointment.
