A dental office, that does Botox? You heard correctly! Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, has many uses other than just the known wrinkle reduction.
With the ability to temporarily immobilize muscles near the sight of injection, Botox can offer you a cosmetic benefit which most people know about. With muscles being unable to move,
this is what slows the development of new creases or wrinkles in the face or other locations. Another common use for Botox in our office is for people with a “gummy smile”. Botox injected into small muscles around the mouth can relax the muscles and give a look of a new smile! For many, Botox used in this situation helps them achieve the smile they have always wanted.
On top of the changes in one's appearance, there are medical benefits that Botox can provide to someone. A common use that Madison No Fear Dentistry provides is for patients with a clenching problem. The occurrence of clenching(most commonly when someone is asleep) can cause migraines, muscle tightness and damage to teeth. To eliminate the clenching, Botox can be injected into the muscles of the jaw which decreases clenching during the night.
Another way that Botox can be used is to decrease sweating. When injected into the sweat glands, there is a drastic reduction in the amount of sweat that is produced. This has been shown to be extremely beneficial for those with overactive sweat glands.
