The team at North Main Family Dental is pleased to announce we now offer Botox® Cosmetic and Botox Therapeutic® treatments.
Dr. Richelle Bedier use Botox® (which is a naturally purified protein) to relax muscles and decrease pain. Botox® is a quick, and relatively painless, non-invasive treatment that has numerous therapeutic and cosmetic uses in dentistry.
Botox® Cosmetic is a highly effective treatment for reducing the appearance of aging by softening facial lines and wrinkles, including frown lines in between the eyes, forehead lines, and “crow’s feet” near the eyes. These lines are caused when overactive muscles reduce the collagen in the skin, which contributes to the skin’s wrinkled appearance. When injected into the facial muscles in minute quantities, Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles, preventing and improving the appearance of wrinkles and smoothing lines. The procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes. Botox® Cosmetic injections need to be repeated every few months as the medication is gradually broken down in the body.
Botox Therapeutic® is used to treat a wide range of orofacial conditions that cause pain and discomfort. Please speak to us if you experience any of the following symptoms below:
During your consultation, our team will take a series of photographs which will allow us to understand your concerns and desires, and also help develop a customized, comprehensive treatment planned and record improvements over time.
Both Botox® Cosmetic and Therapeutic Botox® can be used in conjunction with cosmetic dental treatments to improve the “look” of your smile, by improving uneven lips/smile and a “gummy” smile.
