Thanks to advancements in technology and techniques, skilled dentists like Dr. Waked are able to provide so much more than just necessary cleanings and fillings. She’s specially trained in the safe, comfortable administration of Botox® and injectable dermal fillers.
You might be wondering why you’d see a dentist for your Botox® injections. The truth is there’s no one else more highly qualified in facial esthetics and injections than a dentist. They understand your facial function and muscles at a deeper level than most physicians because of their education and experience.
Botox® for TMJ?
So many of our patients struggle with TMJ discomfort that stretches beyond the jaw to the facial muscles, which can lead to unbearable pain. Sometimes when your wisdom teeth are removed or we create a custom oral appliance, we can get rid of your TMJ pain. But other patients still struggle, so Dr. Waked may recommend safe, reliable Botox® injections. They’re effective because the active ingredient in Botox® (botulinum) is actually a powerful muscle relaxer, so it stops painful contractions and TMJ-related side effects. The best part is – Botox® treatment can last for up to 5 months.
Botox® for Wrinkle Relief?
It’s no secret that Botox® is also used to help restore your youthful look as an anti-aging solution. You can erase wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, facial creases, and lines around your smile. You go out of your way to keep your smile looking beautiful and balanced, so why not extend the same level of care to your face too?
Dr. Waked also uses Xeomin®, an FDA-approved muscle relaxer that’s actually very similar to Botox® because it contains the same active ingredients. She’s also trained in administering another sought-after dermal filler known as Juvederm® (as well as several other brands). It’s proven to erase your lines, wrinkles, and imperfections to create a balanced complexion that’s smooth and naturally refreshed.
If you’ve considered Botox® or other injectables in the past, now’s the time to learn more and find out how they can get rid of your pain (and those annoying frown lines and wrinkles.) Dr. Waked is happy to speak with you about the benefits of injectable treatment and how to incorporate it into your regular dental care visits.
