Every beautiful smile begins with healthy teeth, and we're here to help you achieve that goal.
Now that you've taken the steps to make your teeth as healthy as they can be, do you feel like there’s still something missing from your smile? Your teeth look great, but you may feel like your overall facial appearance could use a little “lift.”
If this is the case, you’ll be pleased to know that Botox injections at Thomas Family Dentistry may be the solution you’re looking for.
Do you wonder what it is that makes a dentist a good choice to handle your Botox injections? Dr. Deanna Thomas has spent many years staying updated with all the latest advances and developments in dentistry. This, of course, also includes learning everything possible about the head, neck, and mouth anatomy.
Her experience in this area allows her to provide you with treatments that produce exceptional results and exceed your expectations.
Dr. Thomas will talk to you about your goals and describe the procedure. She then carefully injects the Botox into specific facial muscles to minimize fine lines around the eyes and forehead. Botox is injected into problem areas in small amounts, loosening up the targeted muscle for up to four months.
Botox acts by temporarily blocking the signals from the nerves that control movement of your muscles. It also has therapeutic benefits, and many patients have found it effective for reducing the uncomfortable symptoms associated with teeth clenching and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction.
Most of our patients start to notice the effects of treatment within three to five days. First, you’ll notice that your facial muscles appear more relaxed. About two weeks later, you will be able to see the full results.
Worried that Botox will create an unnaturally taut appearance of your face? This isn’t a problem because facial muscles we haven’t treated function as they normally would for a natural and expressive appearance.
Botox treatment is quick and easy. The process takes just a few minutes, and the beautiful effects can last up to four months. Some patients also notice that results last longer with repeated injections.
