What is Botox?

Our team describes Botox as an injectable medication. Botox is injected into the facial muscles to relax them and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. It is best used on dynamic wrinkles that develop over time from muscle contractions, such as forehead folds, glabellar lines, and even crow’s feet around the eyes.

How does the team at Shine Dental Arts use Botox?

There are many different ways in which our team utilizes Botox. Botox can be used for:

  • Treating wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. Botox is most commonly used to treat facial wrinkles and folds caused by muscle tension.
  • TMJ/TMD relief. Temporomandibular joint disorder can cause tension in the jaws and muscles that cause discomfort. Botox injections administered strategically around this area can ensure comfort and reduce pain.
  • Gummy smiles. Botox can help achieve a harmonious balance between your teeth and gums, resulting in a more attractive smile. Botox can be injected directly into the muscles in the upper part of the smile to keep the upper lip from lifting upward and exposing extra gum tissue.
  • Headaches. Botox has been proven to effectively treat muscle pain-related conditions, including frequent and debilitating migraines, headaches, and chronic muscle spasms.
