How Does Botox Work?
Botox is an injection that is applied into targeted areas using an ultra-fine needle, and it works by blocking the nerve signals needed for facial muscles to contract.
This can help with discomfort for patients experiencing TMJ issues, limited gripping, high lip lines, and surprisingly loosening up the muscles to oblige false teeth.
These are only a portion of the astonishing reasons Botox is presently involved in the dental world.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
Botox can provide relief for TMJ, Ruxin, tension headaches, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
TMJ problems happen when the muscles become tense with stress. This causes you to feel discomfort when chewing, talking as well as other movements of the jaw. Botox can be used to help relax the TMJ joints and muscles to provide some relief.
Is Botox Painful?
Botox is FDA-approved and very safe to use. Botox is not considered a painful treatment. Most patients report a brief period of discomfort during the injection that sometimes feels like a small pinch. The discomfort does not persist once the procedure is complete.
How Long Will It Last?
You will start seeing results in three to seven days and Botox will last anywhere from three to six months.
Where Can You Get Botox Inserted?
