We now offer Botox for TMJ and Cosmetics
Dr. Grace Zhang is a certified Botox provider who is able to help our patients suffering from pain secondary to TMJ/ TMD issues. Botox treatment can help you look younger and be used to treat TMJ/TMD issues.
It might seem a little unusual to receive Botox treatments at your dentist's office, but these professionals are uniquely qualified to provide the treatments. Dentists receive specialized training that allows them to perform a variety of treatments and procedures on the maxillofacial area, the area that extends from the chin to the forehead. Thanks to their extensive experience and skill in treating facial areas, they can precisely target the muscles that cause wrinkles.
Botox offers a simple solution to many cosmetic issues
Botox injections are often used to treat:
- Crow's feet
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Forehead lines and furrows
- Wrinkles around the mouth
Botox is also useful for the treatment of Sleep Apnea issues due to TMJ/TMD issues.
Botox treatment is quick and easy
Botox injections are virtually painless because your dentist uses a very small needle to inject the liquid into your muscles. You may feel a slight pricking or stinging sensation during the injection, but you won't experience redness or inflammation in most cases. Some softening of your lines and wrinkles may be noticeable within 72 hours after you receive Botox injections, although it may take approximately one week for Botox to take effect completely. Maintaining your appearance is as easy as returning for additional injections every three to six months.
