If wrinkles and fine lines are making you look older than your age, Botox® can help you regain a healthier youthful appearance. It is a popular non-surgical injection that eliminates or reduces forehead creases, frown lines, crow’s feet near the eyes, and thick bands in the neck area. The Botox toxins block the nerve impulses, temporarily incapacitating the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Botox injections are a minimally invasive approach to address high lip lines, helping adjusting to new dentures and lip augmentation. At Mark J. Escoto, DDS in Las Vegas, NV 89117, we perform Botox® treatments to smooth your aging skin and give you a youthful appearance.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a refined natural toxin that is used to relax muscles temporarily. It was primarily used to loosen the intense muscles around the jaw joint that cause chronic pain. However, in recent times, Botox is also being increasingly employed to address facial cosmetic concerns. In dentistry, Botox helps treat numerous problems like correcting high lip lines, decreasing tooth grinding and TMJ pain, hiding lip and facial aging lines, reducing facial swelling and excess sweating, and helping enhance and reshape your smile.
How Can Botox Help?
Improves and Reshapes Your Smile
Botox helps improve and reshape your smile aesthetics. The injections can make minor cosmetic improvements to give your smile a uniform look. Most Botox treatments are straightforward, and their results will last for about six months.
Adjusting to New Dentures
At times your new dentures can cause a significant amount of discomfort. Our mouths are more used to gradual changes, and dentures bring about a quick and effective change. While some people may adjust to new dentures easily, others will benefit from a Botox treatment to help relax their muscles. Botox can considerably decrease facial pain and discomfort from almost any dental treatment.
TMJ and Grinding Teeth
TMJ disorders can cause widespread pain. There are several ways to cure TMJ symptoms, including Botox, which will help relax the muscles that cause grinding and clenching of teeth. By continuing to grind your teeth, you will eventually end up causing a tremendous amount of harm to your oral cavity.
Temporomandibular joint issues can make the muscles stiffen due to stress. When this happens, it may result in pain when speaking, chewing, biting, and other movements of the jawbone. Botox can relax the TMJ muscles and joints to give you relief from pain.
High Lip Lines
High lip lines are a cosmetic concern in which a substantial portion of your gums above your teeth are exposed when you smile. Botox can help conceal the lip lines while giving you a symmetrical, balanced smile.
