Everyone wants and should have a smile that they love and want to show off. Your smile is usually one of the first things other people notice about you. It’s understandable why you would want to make a good impression with a beautiful smile. Over the years, dental professionals have learned how beneficial Botox and injectables can be for improving the appearance and functionality of your smile. As a result, we now have several effective treatment solutions for healthy and beautiful smiles.
Traditionally, injectables such as botox and meditoxin have been used for cosmetic purposes, such as diminishing wrinkles. But now, these injectables have made their way into the dental industry and provide patients with a variety of benefits. Dentists all over the country are now using this treatment, including us. At Covington Dental Arts, we offer two types of injectables: botox and meditoxin.
What is Botox and Injectables in Dentistry?
Botox and meditoxin are proteins that block the nerve signals around the injection site and are effective at relaxing muscles. These treatments are temporary and must be redone on a regular basis to maintain the benefits of these treatments. We use these injectables in a variety of situations to help improve our patients’ smiles.
Injectables Can Be Beneficial
Injectables used to improve dental health provide a non-invasive solution to many different issues, such as: high lip lines, asymmetrical smile, mouth pain, grinding teeth, etc. While these treatments work for some, they aren’t the best choice for everybody, which is why our experts will determine if you are a good candidate and recommend the use of injectables for your dental treatment.
High Lip Lines
High lip lines (also known as a gummy smile) are usually genetic and are when a lot of your gums show when you smile. This is a very natural occurrence and rarely causes any issues regarding your dental health. That being said, a lot of our patients dislike having this type of smile and often come to us looking for a solution. We understand and we want to help. One of the most effective treatments for high lip lines is injectables, such as botox and meditoxin. These are non-invasive and much more affordable than surgery.
Adjusting to Orthodontics and New Dentures
Receiving dentures and other orthodontic devices is rarely an enjoyable experience in the beginning, there can be some pain involved as your mouth gets used to them. Our teeth and mouths respond the best with gradual changes rather than rapid ones, like dentures and orthodontics. We provide botox treatment to some of the patients with new dentures. These injectables help the muscles in the mouth and jaw to relax, and make the transition easier and less painful for the patient.
TMJ and Grinding Teeth
Grinding your teeth is a terrible habit that a lot of our patients suffer from. Unfortunately this can lead to a variety of issues that can be very costly. While there are several treatments we can provide to stop the habit and prevent damage from being done at night, there are not many options for during the day. One however are injectables, these can provide an effective treatment for grinding and TMJ. Our injections can relax the muscles and reduce your pain and tendency to grind or clench your teeth.
Improving Your Smile
In addition to reducing pain and fixing many issues you may be having with your teeth and mouth, botox and meditoxin can also enhance the shape and appearance of your entire smile. We can use these injectables to achieve simple cosmetic improvements to help you become more confident in your smile.
Most of our injectable treatments are quick and easy, and can last up to 6 months before requiring another treatment.
