BOTOX® is an FDA-approved treatment of purified protein that helps to soften and fill fine lines or wrinkles and can also be used as a preventative for premature age lines. In addition to cosmetic benefits, BOTOX® is used in Dentistry as an effective treatment for TMJ, bruxism pain, orofacial pain, and chronic headaches/migraines – With routine treatments, it can help reduce facial or jaw pain by reducing muscle activity.
BOTOX® treatments are a minimally invasive procedure and when injected, results in temporary paralysis or relaxation of the muscles around the injection site. Procedures routinely only take a few minutes and will not require anesthesia but may cause minor discomfort. While it might sound unusual to get BOTOX® from your dentist, they are actually exceptionally qualified due to their knowledge of facial anatomy, skeletal structures and overall facial esthetics.
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid products, such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®, that are injected underneath the skin to restore or give volume and soften creases. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by the body, exists naturally in all living organisms and gives volume and pliability to the skin.
As we get older, the skin’s natural elasticity can fade – Dermal fillers can be used to fill in fine lines around the lips, reduce acne scars (or other scarring), plump up lips, or reduce the appearance of deep set wrinkles.
Areas that are commonly treated with dermal fillers include jowls, downturned smiles, or marionette lines – the effects can be a more fresh-faced appearance. Another benefit of dermal fillers is that treated areas can often have lasting results as it blends seamlessly under the skin and breaks down slowly over time.
Whether you are looking to treat TMJ, Bruxism, Headaches or looking for cosmetic solutions, Our team of Portland dentists at TenderCare Dental is happy to help.
