Of course, not every dentist in Winter Park, FL, offers BOTOX®, but the team at Anderson Family Dental is happy to provide it for our patients. And we use it in ways you may not have considered—not only for facial rejuvenation but also to combat bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding).
What Is BOTOX, and Is It Safe?
BOTOX is derived from the bacterium clostridium botulinum, a toxin in its purest form. But in small doses, it has been used successfully for many years in the medical and dental fields.
Uses include but are not limited to:
- Cervical dystonia
- Overactive bladder
- Eye movement disorders
- Facial rejuvenation
Because BOTOX has been used for decades in some treatments, including migraines, and studied vigorously, we know it to be safe for our patients.
How Your Dentist Uses BOTOX in Winter Park, FL
Our dental office has successfully treated patients with BOTOX, including facial rejuvenation and bruxism therapies.
Our cosmetic dentist can apply BOTOX with a thin needle to prevent or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
Administering BOTOX is a painless treatment that may sting slightly, but our patients feel the results are worth it. You might notice slight bruising and swelling following treatment, but this does not last long. And BOTOX keeps working for several weeks, improving as time goes by.
Grinding and clenching the teeth can lead to TMJ (a painful jaw joint disorder), broken and worn teeth, and dental cavities. BOTOX hinders the ability to grind and clench during sleep.
