Your Dental Botox Team in Tampa
Botox Cosmetics offer more benefits than just minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At our Tampa dental practice, we frequently incorporate Botox injectable therapy and other dermal fillers into both our cosmetic and therapeutic case plans.
Botox for TMJ Pain Relief
TMJ disorder (TMD) is a painful and sometimes debilitating condition that affects the joint where your jaw (mandible) attaches at the back of your mouth. Since your TMJ joint is responsible for moving in multiple different directions, strain or muscle tension can lead to problems like:
- Headaches and migraines
- Grinding, clenching, and worn teeth
- Waking up with a sore jaw
- Broken dental work
- Limited range of motion
- Popping or clicking when you open your mouth
Instead of surgery or wearing a splint all day long, Botox can ease the muscle tension around your TMJ for natural, effective relief. Results last for months, so you can touch up as needed.
Botox for Smile Makeovers
As dentists, we’re experts when it comes to your face, head, and neck. That’s why we’re also able to provide Botox anti-wrinkle treatments and fillers to help you get the full results out of your new aesthetic investment.
Dermal fillers or Botox can create the perfect “frame” for your beautiful teeth. When you feel confident about the way that you look, you’ll be proud to show off your smile every chance that you get.
Botox for “Gummy Smiles”
Do you have what’s known as a “gummy” smile? When you smile for photos or in front of the mirror, do you see more gum tissue than teeth?
Your teeth may not be the issue. Rather, your gummy smile could be due to a hyperactive muscle inside of your lip, causing it to pull back more than you would like.
Since Botox is a natural muscle relaxer, we can place it in areas around your mouth to naturally ease lip tension and thereby cause it to not raise as much when you smile. The results? Less visible gums!
