Why Go To Your Dentist for BOTOX Treatments?

December 13, 2023
Why Go To Your Dentist for BOTOX Treatments?

Botox is a widely known and used cosmetic treatment. It can be administered by physicians, dermatologists, nurses, and many other medical professionals, including dentists. Why go to your dentist for Botox treatments? There are a range of benefits. 

What is Botox? 

Botox is an injectable medication that temporarily paralyzes the muscles in the area where it is injected. This causes the muscles to relax, which releases lines and wrinkles that form in the skin of your face, helping your skin look smoother and more youthful.

Benefits of Going to Your Dentist for Botox

While there are quite a few medical professionals who can legally administer Botox, there are many advantages to going to your dentist:  

  • Convenience. You can receive Botox treatments during your regularly scheduled teeth cleanings every 6 months. The effects of Botox can last up to 6 months in many cases, meaning you won’t have to make any special trips for Botox treatments. 
  • Improve your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance of your teeth, but you smile with your whole face. Botox treatments can accompany cosmetic dentistry to improve your whole smile, not just your teeth. 
  • Experience with injections. Dentists use injections regularly in dentistry to administer anesthesia, so it comes at no surprise that they are also skilled at facial and cosmetic injections. 
  • Knowledge of facial structure. Dentists have an extensive knowledge of facial structure as it pertains to dental and oral health. This allows them to safely and effectively administer Botox in the right areas. 
  • TMJ treatment. Botox can also be used to treat TMJ, a disorder of the joints where the lower jaw connects to the head. TMJ is predominantly treated by dentists as dental health affects the development and treatment of the disorder. 
  • Migraine treatment. Botox has also shown to be effective at reducing the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. Your dentist can administer Botox during your regular dental cleanings to help manage your migraines.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox 

Is Botox safe? 

Botox is made from a toxin that is made by the bacteria botulinum. Although this toxic bacteria can make you sick if you ingest it, it is safe when injected into the facial tissues. The form of Botox used by dentists and physicians for the purpose of cosmetics is safe and approved by the FDA. 

What areas of the face can you get Botox? 

Botox is most commonly used on the forehead and around the eyes, but it can also be used around the mouth and lips. Almost anywhere that you have unwanted lines or wrinkles on your face, Botox can be applied.
