Botox® – Greensboro, GA
Utilizing Advanced Technology for Comprehensive Treatment
At Lake Oconee Dentistry, we believe that oral healthcare is more than just treating teeth. That’s why we offer Botox as a cosmetic and therapeutic treatment at our practice. Did you know that Botox can be used for much more than just getting rid of wrinkles? Along with shaving some years off of your appearance, it has other advantages that our patients enjoy. Read on to learn more about Botox and how you can benefit from it.
What is Botox and How Does it Work?
Botulinum toxin, also known as Botox, can block the release of acetylcholine when injected into specific areas. This causes your muscles to contract and become temporarily paralyzed, allowing them to completely relax. That’s why one of its major uses is to get rid of wrinkles in the face. However, Botox is now used to treat an increasing number of problems, including dental therapeutic procedures, cosmetic treatments, and more. It can even be used to treat certain ailments like lazy eye, uncontrollable eye blinking, and of course, improving facial appearance.
Botox Treatment Procedure
After a consultation to discuss your goals, we will set up an appointment to begin treatment. One of our highly trained dentists will carefully inject Botox into specific muscle groups to relieve a variety of issues that may be affecting your everyday life. The number of injections and the frequency of your treatments will all depend on the type of problem that we are treating. These injections are typically made around the mouth and other parts of the face to relax muscles for weeks and even months. Many muscle issues can be temporarily relieved in just one visit, but they may require repeat appointments to maintain.
Benefits of Botox
Botox can be used in addition to various cosmetic treatments to help with smile and facial proportions. However, it can also be used to relieve:
- Eye problems
- Muscles spasms
- TMJ disorders
- Excessive drooling
- Excessive sweating
At Lake Oconee Dentistry, we believe in comprehensive treatment, which means that we offer the necessary services to give our patients the results that they desire. That’s why we offer an advanced treatment like Botox because it can be used to relieve health and cosmetic problems that other services simply can’t. Additionally, many patients receive dental restorations that give them a more youthful smile, and we can use Botox to help their face match their teeth’s new appearance.
