At Anchorage Midtown Dental Center, we provide a comprehensive menu of treatment techniques to match the unique needs of our patients. To some, these alternatives may seem a bit unconventional. Take Botox as a classic example.
Botox has traditionally been used by cosmetic offices and plastic surgeons as a temporary aesthetic tool to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, facial aesthetics and dental benefits of the injectable medication are now something that dental experts can use to improve the quality of life of their patients.
Management of TMJ Disorders and Symptoms
Injectables like Botox can help us to help you ease the symptoms of jaw pain and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. If you have chronic symptoms of:
• Jaw Pain
…then Botox could help! The effects typically last for at least a few months at a time. When you’re struggling with constant pain throughout the day or as soon as you wake up, there’s a good chance that TMJD or bruxism is to blame. Botox can naturally help you to relax the muscles throughout your jaw, easing the strain that you put on them throughout the day.
Erase Fine Lines and Gummy Smiles
Our skilled cosmetic dentists also offer Botox injectables for the management of problems like fine lines across the face, forehead, and around the eyes. Plus, Botox is perfect for unwanted smile lines or to improve the appearance of a “gummy” looking smile.
The treatment only takes a few minutes to complete – it’s easy to request Botox during your preventive checkup or as part of your complete smile makeover. Together with convenient services like teeth whitening, bonding, or veneers, we can transform your smile into a youthful-looking accessory.
