At Parkway Smiles Dental, we provide various different forms of cosmetic treatment, because we understand that it is a natural human desire to feel younger. As we age, repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting can cause wrinkles and lines.
Botox treatment is a natural purified protein derived from clostridium botulinum. When carefully injected into the skin in measured amounts, it temporarily blocks any signal receptors which tell the muscles to contract. In doing so, wrinkles or expression (frown) lines are drastically softened and in some cases they disappear altogether. The treatment is quick and most patients will notice results within just a few days.
Typically the effects of Botox last for around 3-4 months or until muscle action begins to return. However this depends on a number of factors including diet, exposure to the sun, and lifestyle choices such as smoking. At Parkway Smiles our dental team will be happy to explain all of this in greater detail.
Looking younger can help us feel more confident and better about ourselves. Through a simple, 20-30 min appointment, we can help you achieve that youthful appearance you are after. There is little to no down time following the procedure, so patients can have treatment during their lunch hour and return back to work that afternoon. Botox treatment is the top non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the country. While it’s fair to say that any injection can hurt, the needles used in Botox treatment are very small. The process is virtually painless.
Yes! Also, known as Bruxism, clenching and grinding our teeth either at night or during the day can cause severe damage to our teeth. Bruxism can cause loss of tooth structure, sensitivity, worn or chipped teeth, as well as sore jaw muscles. Botox is an effective treatment that can relax the jaw muscles and help to temporarily alleviate those symptoms. Although it is not a cure for Bruxism, Botox can help to manage the uncomfortable problems associated with clenching/grinding. In combination with a night guard, it can be an effective treatment for many people.
