Consider Botox® injections for migraines, TMJ, TMD, and dynamic wrinkles

When you think of Botox, you might think of an injectable used for treating fine lines and wrinkles connected with the natural aging process. But did you know that dentists in Tampa, Florida, use Botox for various conditions and concerns? Dr. Loc Tong and Dr. Angela Rasmussen of Gentle Dentistry are here to educate patients on the many benefits of Botox injections!

Why patients might consult Drs. Loc Tong and Angela Rasmussen about Botox:

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 gum. While results can vary, it is a great option to minimize too much gum 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. 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 three to six months before the treated folds and wrinkles begin to redevelop. We encourage patients to come in at this interval for injections to maintain the results over time.
