When you think of Botox, you might think of an injectable used for treating fine lines and wrinkles connected with the natural process of aging. But did you know that dentists in Tampa, Florida, can use Botox for various conditions and concerns? Dr. Angela Rasmussen and Dr. Amanda del Cueto of Gentle Dentistry are here to educate patients on the many benefits of Botox injections!
Why patients might use Botox with Drs. Angela Rasmussen or Amanda del Cueto:
Below are a few of the benefits that Botox provides for patients at Gentle Dentistry:
- Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles: Patients might consider Botox® injections during their routine appointments with our team to combat the signs of aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reducing a gummy smile: Patients who have a “gummy smile” may find that the proportion of the teeth and gums is off. Botox can be explicitly injected into the upper lip muscles to reduce the amount your lip can go up which exposes more gums. While results can vary, it is a great option to keep excess gums from being noticeable.
- Reducing teeth grinding and tension: Conditions such as bruxism, which can cause clenching and grinding of the teeth, can significantly damage the smile. Botox injections to the appropriate muscles can reduce these muscular contractions and reduce problems associated with this condition.
- Alleviate chronic migraines. Chronic migraines can be treated with Botox®, which has been FDA-approved for this purpose. Tension headaches are often caused by muscle tension, and by treating these muscles with Botox, many patients will find relief!
How long does Botox® last?
Most patients will find that the results of Botox® will last 3-6 months before the folds and wrinkles treated begin to show redevelopment. We encourage patients to come in at this interval for injections to maintain the results over time.
