Dentistry Botox

Botox can seem like a dirty word. It’s not always something that you want to be known for having, but Botox in dentistry does a lot of good.

Most often, botox treatments in dentistry are used to help repair facial aesthetics. It’s a minimally invasive way to treat high lip lines for people who have issues adjusting to new dentures, as well as lip augmentation.

Each of these procedures safely and positively uses Botox to help patients feel more comfortable with their bodies. Today we’re going to explore some of the different uses of Botox in dentistry and how it might be able to help you. But first, what is Botox?

What Is Botox in Dentistry?

While we have already talked about some of the different ways that it can be used to help dental patients, it’s good to define what it actually is.

Botox is a drug that relaxes muscles and, most often, is used to reduce wrinkles in the skin. It’s derived from a bacterium, clostridium botulinum, that can be found in many different natural substances. When receiving Botox injections in treatment, a small dose is given that lasts temporarily.

There is no long-term way of maintaining what is achieved through Botox without surgery. You’ll need regular Botox treatments in order to preserve and maintain the benefits of Botox treatments.
