Using Botox and Dermal Fillers in Dentistry

Many patients have been choosing Botox and Dermal Fillers to help treat their TMJ, migraines, gummy smiles, lip lines and puckered chins

Why Choose a Dentist for Botox and Dermal Filler Treatments?

Our Kitchener and Cambridge offices are treating TMJ, migraines, and gummy smiles with Botox. Our extensive training and knowledge in oral and maxillofacial muscles, can help you in getting a better appearance or help for oral health problems. It only takes a few minutes to perform the injections, and the untreated facial muscles can contract to allow normal expression.

Treating Migraines with Botox

Migraines can significantly impact a person''s daily life. Before Botox was approved for migraine relief, patients were subject to a variety of preventative treatments that often resulted in drug interactions and limited effectiveness.

Treating TMJ Disorder with Botox

If you suffer from TMJ-related pain, it's possible to treat the cause without mouth guards. Botox injections help relax the muscles around the mouth and jaw. By doing so, the chances for a headache from teeth clenching and jaw pain is greatly reduced. Because of this muscular-based treatment, you can find relief that doesn’t involve an uncomfortable mouth guard.

Reducing Gummy Smiles with Botox

For those self-conscious about how their gums show when they smile, Botox can offer a change. Reducing Gummy Smiles with Botox is quick and doesn’t require surgery or a laser treatment. Treatment for a gummy smile focuses on a muscle that runs from the side of the nose to the upper lip. The Botox injection relaxes this muscle, preventing the upper lip from moving too far when smiling, it can also reduce chronic gingivitis, because it keeps the gums covered. The results will last about three to four months.
