Botox is a brand name of botulinum toxin which works to reduce and prevent the appearance of wrinkles in the face by essentially paralyzing facial muscles, and forcing them to relax. While this is the most common use of Botox, it can also be used to treat Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ) by reducing muscle contractions, and can also reduce teeth grinding in those who suffer from bruxism by relaxing the jaw muscles responsible for clenching. Botox can also be used to treat tension migraines, gummy smiles, high lip lines, and lip and facial lines.
Dermal fillers are an injectable substance used to plump the lips and smooth out skin and wrinkles. They can improve your smile by reducing high lip lines, plumping the lips, and reducing lines around the mouth. Contact us at All Smiles Dental Studio to schedule an appointment in Cincinnati today.
