Dental Problems Can Start With Your Facial Muscles

Many common dental problems can be traced back to the condition of your facial muscles. Your mouth’s soft tissues are just as important as your teeth for good oral health and a great smile you can be proud of.

Our dental team wants to make sure your face, gums, and lips are just as healthy as your teeth to do their job and keep you smiling and chewing.

Botox injections are one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce pain in your mouth and head and correct a wide variety of dental and mouth disorders. Without affecting your nerve receptors that feel touch, temperature, or pain, Botox can:

  • Reduce facial lines.
  • Relaxes tight muscles.
  • Correct cosmetic concerns.
  • Allow normal biting and speaking functions.

Botox Treats a Variety of Facial Muscle Concerns

Botox injections are probably best known as a cosmetic treatment that is widely used to remove the appearance of wrinkles on a person’s face. The solution is injected under wrinkles and when the facial muscles relax, they smooth the area and reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles.

A high lip line can be relaxed and reduced to create a lower and more pleasing smile that also reduces the amount of gum showing. The entire process of Botox injections is quick, relatively painless, and can give almost immediate results.

Botox injections give you a painless and quick dental treatment option that can give relief from oral or facial pain caused by many different conditions including:

  • Earaches.
  • Chronic facial pain.
  • Headaches and migraines.
  • Pain in your shoulders or neck.
  • Clicking or popping in your jaw.

The Many Uses of Botox

Reducing a “Gummy Smile”

Botox injections are very effective in reducing a lip that rests too high on the gums, sometimes called a “gummy smile.” This often appears as showing too much of your upper gum and can make the patient feel that their teeth are too small or become too overly self-conscious about their smile.

To negate this, we can inject Botox between your nose and upper lip to create a more attractive and natural smile. This procedure causes little discomfort and allows your upper lip to relax and not contract or lift as much when smiling. It also better covers your gums more naturally and can reduce vertical lines around your lips.

Sometimes we can use Botox to fill out, relax, and lift your upper lip. This elevates the lip to make it look well-defined and more full.

Treating Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)

Botox is a great option to treat a person’s jaw muscle hyperactivity that can cause temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain or problems. While Botox injections don’t treat the root cause of TMD, they will relax these muscles and quickly and effectively relieve pain in your mouth, face, and head, including Migraines.

TMJ disorder can affect people in different ways. Some symptoms include:

  • Lockjaw.
  • Earaches.
  • Headaches.
  • Jaw tension.
  • Popping jaw.

Botox injections work by relaxing your facial muscles which give you a more relaxed jaw and mouth and allow normal facial movements and relief from pain.

Bruxism (Clenching or Grinding Teeth)

Dental Botox injections are a very effective treatment to relax a person’s jaw muscles. This reduces the amount of clenching or grinding of teeth at night, a condition known as bruxism. If left untreated, bruxism can cause several side effects such as:

  • Jaw pain.
  • Headaches.
  • Chipped teeth.
  • Sensitivity in your gums.
  • Wearing away tooth enamel.

When a small amount of Botox is injected into the muscles used for moving your jaw, it can relieve and reduce clenching, tension, and aches in your mouth or face.

Dentures

Injections of Botox can be very helpful when you get new dentures. Having unfamiliar objects in your mouth can cause soft tissues and muscles to tighten and it often takes time to become familiar and comfortable with them.

Botox relaxes and retrains your lip and gum muscles that have been displaced by the new dentures to adjust and make the transition to your new dental appliance. Botox can also be used to relieve discomfort and facial pain from other dental appliances including orthodontics.

Expression Lines Around Your Mouth

In addition to smoothing wrinkles in your face, Botox is often used to quickly and effectively reduce furrows and smile lines in and around your mouth. The Botulinum toxin is expertly injected in small amounts to relax facial muscles and improve your smile and self-confidence.

What Can I Expect From Dental Botox Treatments?

Examination and Evaluation | Our experienced team of professionals at Vibrant Dental will expertly and thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, and overall physical health. From this careful evaluation, we will design a treatment plan to precisely target specific facial muscles and get you started on the path to feeling your best.

Preparing Your Mouth | Once your treatment plan has been evaluated and designed, our dentist will carefully prepare the area in your mouth for the Botox injections. We are always mindful of your comfort and anxiety and offer a variety of options to keep you comfortable and numb the mouth tissue and relieve anxiety during your dental treatment.

Injection | Dental professionals typically give more injections than other healthcare providers. This gives them the tools to expertly administer Botox injections in the exact area and dosage needed to take care of your unique dental needs. With years of experience, our dentist will administer Botox injections precisely and carefully.

Common Questions About Dental Botox Injections

How Can I Prepare for Botox?

There’s not much you as the patient need to do before your Botox appointment. Perhaps take the day off work just in case you’re not feeling up to your job after the procedure. You may also want to take some before and after pictures so you can see the amazing transformation!

Anything else, like stopping alcohol or blood thinner consumption, will be discussed with one of our dentists well before your procedure. Everything else is taken care of by our wonderful team. All you need to do is show up for the appointment.

What Do I Need To Do After the Injection?

When Botox has been injected into your facial muscles, our dentist will advise you not to rub or massage the area treated for 24 hours. This keeps the Botox material in the exact location in your mouth where it is needed to take care of your particular dental need without spreading to unwanted areas in your mouth and body.

How Long Will Botox Injection Treatments Last?

Botox injection treatments typically take from 10–30 minutes. You will receive at least three injections over several months. Botox begins to take effect one to three days after your first dental treatment. Complete results are often experienced within thirty days.

Your Botox treatment will continue to block the nerve signals and last three months or longer. The Botox will gradually begin to wear off and will then need to be followed up with another round of injections.

What Would Be a Good Reason To See My Dentist for Botox?

There are many reasons someone might want to consider Botox treatment, and not all of them are cosmetic, for instance:

  • Headache relief.
  • Easing muscle tension.
  • Making chewing and speaking less painful.
  • Adjusting the pull of your skin when you smile.

Our dentists are professionals in cosmetic and oral care. They have many years of experience understanding the anatomy of your face and its muscle and bone structure. Our dentists have been specifically trained to evaluate and treat dental conditions that can be improved with Botox injections.

When you schedule a time to meet with Vibrant Dental, we can go over the many available Botox options. Whether you want to recapture your youthful smile and self-esteem or get rid of oral pain or discomfort, Botox injections can be a fantastic and effective treatment that gets you the results you need.

How Safe Are Botox Treatments?

The Botox protein has been safely and effectively used for many years by millions of satisfied patients. It has been proven reliable and effective and is one of the most common cosmetic treatment options available anywhere.

Like any dental procedure, there is the possibility of certain side effects. Botox can spread through the body on rare occasions and cause potential problems such as:

  • Headaches.
  • Muscle weakness.
  • Urinary incontinence.
  • Resistance to Botox over time.
  • Difficulty in breathing and swallowing.
  • Pain or swelling at the site of injection.
  • Dryness in the eyes or a temporary droop in the eyelids.

Our dentists will go over all the risks with you before treatment and discuss your likelihood of having a less than successful experience. We will not proceed with treatment if there is a serious health risk to you.

Do Botox Injections Hurt?

The Botox will be injected into a small area in or around your mouth. Some people experience very slight discomfort, but most say they only feel a very slight pinch. Our dentist can also use an anesthetic to minimize pain or anxiety. Your happiness and comfort are our priority, so be sure to tell us if you are nervous or in pain.

Is Botox Just for Women?

Patients of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and genders are welcome to receive Botox treatment. Women aren’t the only ones who are concerned with their appearance, and they’re not the only ones to get headaches either. We are happy to treat any adult patients seeking Botox treatment.
