Why should I get Botox?

You have probably heard numerous horror stories about Botox. At Rogers Center for Dentistry, we customize Botox treatments for every patient, instead of treating everyone the same. We can give a lift to your brows, enhance lips, and we use it in a way that still looks natural — so our patients can still express themselves normally.

Since Botox is a natural muscle relaxant, not only does it help your skin look younger, it can also reduce pain caused by dental disorders such as TMJ, teeth clenching, and tooth grinding, as well as encourage the success of other associated treatments.

How does it work?

Botox injections are usually performed in a doctor’s office. The doctor uses a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.
Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours. This may help prevent the toxin from spreading to a different area. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.

FAQs

Will it hurt?

Most people don’t feel much discomfort during the procedure. Your doctor might use one or more of various methods available to numb the area, such as topical anesthesia, ice, and vibration anesthesia, which uses massage to reduce discomfort.

Tell your doctor if you’ve had any type of Botox injection within the past four months. Also, tell your doctor if you take muscle relaxants, sleeping aids, or allergy medications. If you take blood thinners, you may need to stop taking them several days before your injection to reduce your risk of bleeding or bruising.

How often will I need to come in?

Botox injections usually begin working one to three days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three months or longer. To maintain the result, you’ll need regular follow-up injections.
