Botox & Fillers
(for TMJ treatment)
Botox & Fillers (lip, gum, smile, smoker line, black triangle) for TMJ treatment
Botox is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure administered in our office at Moonstone Dental in Oakville, Ontario.
Botox is a very popular cosmetic treatment. In simple terms, the Botox process involves injections containing purified bacteria onto concerning areas of the body, which in turn helps to freeze that muscle part. Botox helps to block certain nerves, freezing them to soften, remove or reduce wrinkles in the area.
Botox can also be used as a non-cosmetic treatment in cases such as TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). Botox helps by offering fast and effective pain relief due to TMJ.
How does BOTOX help with TMJ?
Botox helps by eliminating, headaches, reducing or minimizing lockjaw, reduces jaw discomfort, reducing/minimizing any associated shoulder or neck pain, and reducing any present jaw tension caused by TMJ.
Botox injections help relax the jaw muscles, therefore providing TMJ relief.
Why would you want to freeze a muscle through the use of BOTOX?
To minimize/avoid the appearance of wrinkles and/or fine lines resulting from our daily facial expressions.
Is BOTOX safe?
When administered by a professional, in small amounts, Botox is considered very safe and has been used to correct fine lines and wrinkles for over decades.
How long does BOTOX last for?
Can I get both BOTOX and FILLER treatments?
Yes, because each treatment uses a difference substance and helps to correct different things. You can combine both to treat different areas of concern. For example, you can get a Botox treatment to correct wrinkles around the eyes and a Filler treatment to plump up thinning lips.
Contact our Moonstone Dental Office for more information pertaining specifically to you case.
Botox could last anywhere from 3 to 4 months. Results vary per individual.
What are FILLERS exactly?
Fillers, on the other hand, work a little differently than botox. They are also administered through the use of injections but to treat different issues. Fillers consist of ingredients that add fullness to areas of concern. Areas such as cheeks, or lips, these areas usually thin over time as we age. And adding fillers helps bring back their outmost fullness.
How long do FILLERS usually last?
Fillers, depending on the substances used, could last any where from 6 months to over 2 years.
