What is BOTOX?

BOTOX treatment involves injecting diluted botulinum toxin in your face or around your mouth, freezing the facial muscles in the area. This allows them to be more relaxed, effectively taking the tension away from any uncomfortable areas. These injections take about 5-10 minutes to administer and are given in small doses to target specific places in the face. Most patients can start to notice the results within several days and can expect them to last between three to six months.

How BOTOX Can Help You

While BOTOX is usually associated with eliminating wrinkles and beautifying a person’s face, Dr. Sienna Palmer specifically uses this treatment to help those struggling with gummy smiles or jaw joint issues. Here’s how BOTOX can help improve the way your smile looks and feels:

Gummy Smile Correction

Do you often show more of your gums whenever you grin or laugh? With BOTOX, we can inject the area between your nose and your upper lip to freeze the muscles temporarily. This will allow you to smile without presenting too much of your gums, as the area will be unable to contract and elevate like normal.

TMJ Therapy

If you’re struggling with TMJ disorder, then you can benefit greatly from BOTOX injections. We can administer the solution in the problematic area to prevent the jaw muscles from straining and clenching, which can allow them to settle down and recover. The relief should be nearly instantaneous and your results can last several months before you need to revisit your dentist.
