Did you know you can receive BOTOX® injections at the dentist? In fact, BOTOX treatments and your oral health can go hand in hand, as BOTOX has a variety of dental-related therapeutic uses. Whether you’re new to the idea of BOTOX or have been considering treatment for some time, this information will help you learn more about how Dr. Sekhon uses BOTOX and how long each treatment lasts.
What Are Some Uses for BOTOX?
BOTOX can take years off your appearance by reducing fine lines, crows feet, and smile lines. However, BOTOX also serves therapeutic purposes. For example, Dr. Sekhon uses BOTOX to treat symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). A misaligned jaw is often responsible for TMJ dysfunction, which can lead to migraines, jaw pain, clenching and teeth grinding, and other side effects ranging from annoying to painful. BOTOX reduces muscle activity which can calm muscle irritation and alleviate your pain.
How Does BOTOX Work?
A BOTOX treatment consists of injecting purified botulinum-toxin protein into the muscles of your face. Injections are targeted based on where you experience pain and the results you desire. During your consultation, we will go over the process and talk about your goals. Then, we will create an individualized treatment plan based on your unique needs.
Our BOTOX treatments are affordably priced at $15 per unit. After your consultation, we’ll be able to tell you about how many units of treatment you’ll need and provide an estimate for the cost of the procedure.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
You’ll notice significant results one to three days after the procedure. These results can last for over three months, although regular follow-up treatments are required to maintain your results beyond this.
