Botox® for Dental Problems, Headaches, and Facial Pain
Botox in Belpre, OH
Do you suffer from facial pain, headaches, or migraines? Do you want a refreshed, youthful smile?
Belpre Dental Studio’s licensed Botox® dentist can help. As a dentist, Dr. Huffman has extensive training in facial anatomy, in addition to Botox® specific training – making him an excellent provider of safe, effective, natural-looking Botox® injections.
Dental Botox® can alleviate pain from migraines, headaches, teeth grinding, and TMJ issues. Or it can be paired with dermal fillers to cosmetically fill wrinkles around your mouth for an improved smile. You can even slow down the wear of your teeth (due to Bruxism)!
Common areas for Botox® injections include horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Botox® smooths lines from muscle activity. It’s a proven favorite way to achieve a natural-looking youthful appearance and an effective method of combating chronic migraines.
What is Dental Botox®?
Botox® (or botulinum toxin A) is commonly thought of as the go-to treatment for wrinkles, smile lines, and other facial cosmetic concerns. Botox® is a purified protein that, when injected, attaches to the muscle’s nerve endings to inhibit nerve transmission. Injection weakens or temporarily stops the facial motions beneath the injection sites by inhibiting muscle activity.
Effects of Botox® can be cosmetic and therapeutic! While effects are temporary, they usually last three to four months.
Is it safe to get Botox® from my dentist?
Botox® in dentistry is safe when performed by a dentist specially trained in Botox® injections. Dr. Huffman is highly trained in Botox®, Xeomin®, and JUVÉDERM® by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. As a dentist, Dr. Huffman has regularly practiced comfortable injections. He has extensive training on and is extremely familiar with head and neck anatomy. This knowledge and background are important for safe, effective injections that are gentle and achieve natural-looking results.
