How is Botox used in Dentistry?
The use of Botox in dentistry has become very popular and is now widely used. Botox is a neurotoxin injection that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It has been used by doctors to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial creases. However, it has also been used in dentistry to help treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ), teeth grinding, jaw clenching, and facial pain (such as from chronic TMJ).
Using Botox for Cosmetic Purposes
For cosmetic purposes, Botox can help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), frown lines (lines around the mouth), and forehead lines. Becoming more popular recently are Botox brow lifts. This treatment can reduce the lines between your brows, give your brows a lift in height, and reduce the appearance of upper eyelid hooding. If you’re wondering how long does Botox last, it’s usually between three to six months.
