Dentists receive extensive training with injections and head and neck anatomy. They are uniquely qualified to consider Botox as part of a more comprehensive assessment. Whether you are looking to find alternative treatments to painful TMJ disorders or just improve your facial appearance, your dentist will bring a detail-oriented perspective. Additionally, dental offices are equipped to provide nitrous oxide or laughing gas to help decrease anxiety and increase comfort. This service is generally not available in a medical office or the aesthetic spa setting.
Every dentist must meet several requirements before administering botox injections or dermal fillers. Our dentists who provide Botox treatment undergo extensive training, including a Botox Training & Certification Course and periodic continuing education classes.
The effects from Botox will last an average of four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.
The price will depend on your practice and type of treatment required. Most can expect to use 20-50 units. Fifty units typically takes care of the forehead, glabella, and crow’s feet. Other dental treatments can vary greatly. Give us a call to discuss your specific needs.
