portale post The Season of Rejuvenation

June 2019

S ummer is the season for looking your best! It’s the season for rejuvenation and feeling good, and we’re here to help you get the most out of the warmest months. Conventional wisdom says you go to the dentist to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. But what if I told you that you could achieve a beautiful, youthful glow to your whole face? It’s possible, and it’s all thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry. More dentists, including myself, offer Botox treatments. It may seem odd, but it’s true, and it makes a lot of sense. Dentists are well-versed in the anatomy of the head and neck, not just teeth and gums. We know facial muscles and how each part works with the others. We spend so much time working in very small spaces with delicate tools designed to create beautiful smiles. Bring that all together and Botox makes perfect sense. It’s another tool in the dentist’s toolkit. I added Botox to my own toolkit because it’s a great way to make a beautiful smile stand out that much more. Another way to think about it is that we want to make the picture frame look as beautiful as the picture inside! Botox helps smooth out the lines and wrinkles on your face to help you achieve a healthy, youthful look that complements your smile. It’s a simple injection into spots around the muscles of the brow. This helps smooth out frown lines and crow’s feet. The wonderful thing about Botox is that it’s not just cosmetic. Botox has other applications as well, including the treatment of chronic pain and discomfort. Botox has become a treatment option for debilitating migraines and issues related to the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. Just as Botox helps smooth facial lines and wrinkles, it can ease tension in facial muscles that lead to headaches and neck pain. It’s also been used to treat TMJ-related pain. And because Botox is a targeted treatment, it’s often more reliable at treating these conditions than over-the-counter options.

worry about incisions, stitches, or any kind of surgery. It’s no more complicated than a regular appointment to see the dentist!

After your treatment, most people start to see (or feel) results within 24–48 hours. One Botox treatment can last up to four months.

If you have any questions about Botox, don’t hesitate to ask. If you’re curious about achieving a renewed youthful look that matches your smile, we may be able to help. Or if you want to know more about treating migraines or other types of facial pain, we may be able to get the relief you’ve been looking for. Just give us a call and we can set up an appointment to determine if Botox is right for you.

Together, we can make this one summer to remember!
