Botox & Dermal fillers

Botox Injection

Have you considered Botox® or Fillers?

We are very excited to  have Dr. Molly Sayball providing Botox® and dermal fillers to our patients. Not only can these procedures improve the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and lips they can be used to enhance the beautiful cosmetic dentistry that we provide at our office.

 

What’s the difference between Botox® and fillers? The difference lies in how the products work. Botox® reduces wrinkles by freezing the muscles underneath the skin. Fillers work by plumping up areas of the skin that have lost fullness due to aging.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a trade name for botulinum toxin, which comes in the form of a purified protein. The mechanism of action for Botox® is really quite simple. Botox® is injected into the facial muscles but really doesn’t affect the muscle at all. Botulinum toxin affects and blocks the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle. There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract. When that muscle does not contract, the dynamic motion that causes wrinkles in the skin will stop. The skin then starts to smooth out, and in approximately three to ten days after treatment, the skin above those muscles becomes nice and smooth. The effects of Botox® last for approximately three to four months, at which time retreatment is needed.

What are Fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers are products used to fill in tissue where volume has been lost. Fillers are commonly used in the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Plumping up these areas gives a more youthful look by smoothing lines and adding volume.These dermal fillers are injected right under the skin into to plump up these areas so that these lines are much less noticeable. Dermal fillers are also used for lip augmentation and are used by dentists for high lip line cases, uneven lips, and to make the peri-oral area more esthetic.

Dermal or soft tissue fillers are often used to smooth out lines on the face. Fillers are an effective treatment for:

  • Adding volume and shape to lips

  • Smoothing glabella lines between the brows

  • Filling out nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth

Dentists Are Experts in the Architecture of the Face

 

Dentists are facial experts. When it comes to the architecture of the face, dentists know the muscle and bone structures from extensive dental training, learning about the oral and maxillofacial (areas from the chin to the forehead) components in detail.

Patients can trust their Botox® injections to be precise AND to and look natural.

Botox® for Dental Treatment

 

While most people know that Botox® is used to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, many are unaware that it is also used to  offer dental health benefits far beyond what you might imagine.  Patients experiencing any of these conditions may benefit from dental Botox® treatments:

  • Upside-down smiles (as it takes more muscles to frown compared to smiling)

  • Lip lines and puckered chins

  • A “gummy” smiles due to over-retracted upper lips

  • Persistent clenching and grinding (aka bruxism) of the teeth

  • Orthodontic cases where retraining of the facial muscles is needed
