At Redmond Signature Dentistry, we believe that good health and good function go hand-in-hand with good aesthetics. Using Botox to counteract temporomandibular disorders and bite abnormalities results in better health—and improved aesthetics.
Botox Treatment, Procedure & Benefits
Botox is the popular term for botulinum A (and other botulinum compounds). Its injection is linked, in the popular mind, with cosmetic improvements, particularly the removal of facial wrinkles, and the injection of Botox is commonly thought of as being performed by plastic surgeons. It is true that Botox injections will cause a temporary decrease in—and even disappearance of—facial wrinkles and, therefore, a younger, healthier, more attractive look. But there are other, serious, health-improvement benefits to Botox injection and some very good reasons to receive your injections from your Redmond Signature Dentist.
Botox injections can relieve chronic muscular tension in the face, head, and neck, thereby helping fight migraines and other chronic headache and neck-ache problems.
By limiting the over-function of the chewing and grinding muscles, Botox may help patients stop grinding their teeth and clenching their jaws.
Chronically pursed or puckered lips and chins, which frequently result in bite dysfunction, can be treated very effectively with Botox, giving patients better looks, better smiles, and a more functional bite.
Redmond Signature Dentists are skilled at assessing the balance, function, and overall aesthetics of the face. We are experts when it comes to cranial nerves, their locations, and the best and safest ways to reach and inject them. Botox injections, in our office, will be accomplished with a minimum of discomfort as we have the training, experience and expertise to apply these rejuvenating products. As with all our services, your comfort and convenience are our highest priority.
