Lynnwood Dental Offers Botox for a Great Appearance

The dental professionals at Lynnwood Dental understand that helping you look your best is not just a matter of creating an attractive smile. A good appearance also involves smooth facial skin and an air of confidence. This is why Dr. Sara Boren at Lynnwood Dental also provides Botox injections to ensure that patients are able to put their best face forward.

Botox, a compound produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, is administered to treat a wide range of conditions, including wrinkles and migraines. It's a popular treatment for people who prefer an alternative to surgery or drugs.

Recently, the cosmetic branch of Botox has become popular as an injection for smooth skin and wrinkle-free faces. For many people, a Botox injection is preferable to surgery or using products like creams or face masks.

Lynnwood Dental is proud to offer effective Botox treatment with minimally invasive injections. Our skilled Botox dentist provides a range of treatment options that can help you look your best.

What is Botox?

Botox®Cosmetic is a cosmetic procedure in which a safe, purified form of the botulinum toxin is injected into specific muscles to temporarily relax them and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition to treating facial wrinkles, Botox can also treat crow's feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and even neckbands.

How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?

Botox treatment works by blocking nerve impulses that tell muscles to contract. When they are blocked, the treated areas will relax, and the wrinkles caused by contracted muscles will smooth out. After just a few days, the results of a Botox injection are visible. The results typically last around four to twelve months. 

How is a Botox Cosmetic Injection Administered?

The procedure only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthesia or downtime. So you can return to normal activities right away.

Our Botox dentist will safely perform injections right in our Knoxville, TN, office. After a quick consultation to discuss your goals, we will make small injections in the targeted muscles.

Is Botox Safe?

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the country, but it's also one of its safest. It has been in use for over 20 years to treat conditions like migraines and overactive bladder. When an experienced Botox dentist like Dr. Boren and her team administer it, Botox is completely safe and highly effective.

Are There Side Effects?

In most cases, no serious side effects have been reported from Botox injections. In some cases, patients report mild pain at the injection site, but it typically resolves within a few days. Occasionally a small bruise or temporary headache occurs. In rare cases, some patients may have an allergic reaction.

Advantages of Using Botox

Many patients like Botox treatment because it has no downtime, is long-lasting, and requires little maintenance. There are also some financial benefits. Botox is one of the most affordable wrinkle-fighting treatments on the market. In addition to helping fight wrinkles and lines, it can even help with certain medical conditions.

Botox for TMJ

Temporomandibular Disorders (TMJ) is a condition where the muscles in the jaw become strained and sore. It can also cause teeth to shift, resulting in uneven wear on the enamel. Using Botox therapy to relax facial muscles that lead to TMJ can help reduce pain and discomfort. If injected by a TMJ specialist, Botox will improve your overall jaw function and ability to chew.

Botox for Migraines

Some migraines result from tension in the muscles of the face. Since botulinum toxin relaxes the muscle, it can be an effective treatment for relieving migraines and preventing them in high-risk patients. It's also sometimes used to control chronic migraines when other treatments are no longer effective.

Preventative Botox

Botox can be used as a preventative measure. When injected into certain muscles, it prevents wrinkles and fine lines before they start to form. This is why many patients in their 20s and 30s are also getting this treatment.

Botox for Excessive Sweating

Patients who suffer from excessive sweating can benefit from Botox. By injecting this drug into sweaty areas like the hands and underarms, a client can help reduce hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.

Botox for Overactive Bladder

Botox injections help relax the muscles in the bladder and urinary tract. This can help reduce symptoms like urgency, frequency, and leaks due to an overactive bladder.

Use of Botox and Fillers in Dentistry

You may ask yourself how Botox could be connected to teeth or any other aspect of dentistry.

The advantage of using a dentist for this procedure is that you are dealing with someone who understands facial anatomy. Our expert Botox dentist understands the thin tissue and bone structure of the face, ensuring an accurate injection without damaging surrounding tissue or causing paralysis.

Having the treatment administered by a dentist also eliminates the risk of infection since it's performed in a sterile setting by a licensed professional. Your Botox dentist has the training to handle any potential problems that arise during or after the injections.

Rest assured, you will have a safe and comfortable experience when getting Botox at Lynnwood Dental.

Is Botox Right for You?

Botox treatment is only effective on specific facial muscles, so not everyone will be a good candidate. Our experienced Lynnwood Dental team will review your medical history and symptoms to determine if this treatment can help you.

We want all of our patients to feel comfortable, so we go the extra mile to ensure they are well informed about which procedures are right for them.

Does Insurance Cover Botox?

There is some variation in whether health insurance companies will cover Botox, but most do, at least partially. Many specific criteria have to be met before submitting a claim for treatment. If you have any questions, our trusted team is always happy to assist.
