Dr. Reddy of Creative Dentistry of Covington offers Botox® to help treat issues like teeth grinding (bruxism), temporomandibular joint disorder, masseter muscle hypertrophy, gummy smiles, wrinkles around the mouth and more. Botox, a panacea for health and beauty issues, is also an excellent solution for dealing with jaw tension.
How Does Botox Work for Teeth Grinding and Other Jaw-related Disorders?
Botox is a non-invasive treatment that paralyzes muscles, preventing teeth grinding and jaw clenching caused by overactive masseter muscles. In addition to reducing pain, headaches and dental issues, getting masseter Botox provides cosmetic benefits; it minimizes and softens the jawline for more prominent cheekbones.
How Does Botox Work for Gummy Smiles?
A person with a gummy smile has excessive gum tissue showing when they smile, making their teeth look short. Often, the cause is hyperactive lip muscles, which can be temporarily paralyzed with Botox injections.
Botox Can Help You Acclimate to New Dentures
New dentures can be painful. Our mouths are used to gradual alterations, but dentures can be drastic. Botox can reduce facial pain while you acclimate to new dentures and after orthodontic or dental work.
Botox Can Enhance Your Teeth Whitening or Straightening Results
Make the most of your whitening or straightening efforts by also getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines around your mouth. You will be extra proud to show off your beautiful new smile!
Botox minimizes lines caused by smiling, frowning, smoking and aging. It can also lift your mouth’s corners and upper lip. A few injections in the muscle above your upper lip will relax it, making your upper lip more prominent. It is a terrific alternative to fillers for a more subtle upper lip enhancement.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Expect to notice results within a week, with results typically lasting around three to four months. Botox is temporary, so repeat sessions are required to maintain results.
What Should You Expect from a Botox Procedure?
A Botox session is quick, with treatments usually lasting under twenty minutes. It is a nearly painless procedure, and we strive to ensure your experience is comfortable by performing the treatment in a relaxed environment.
We use numbing cream, so you barely feel the needle pricks. When the cream wears off, the treated area should not feel different. There is no downtime for Botox injections. You can resume your activities immediately after your appointment.
