At Maria Cardenas, DMD, we are continually searching out new ways to treat your dental issues and help create the flawless smile you desire. We’re happy to offer Botox as part of the extensive list of corrective and aesthetic services we provide.
Botox has been administered for over 20 years for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. We use Botox therapeutically to relieve painful symptoms associated with muscle tension in the jaw. Botox treatments are beneficial for patients suffering from TMJ and bruxism, the grinding and clenching of teeth, as it helps reduce both the number of clenching events and their intensity. This can not only minimize discomfort, but also potential damage to teeth, jaw bones, gums, and the muscles and joints associated with chewing.
Cosmetically, we utilize Botox to help you achieve your perfect smile. When muscles are injected with Botox, they no longer contract, making fine lines and wrinkles soften and relax. We treat areas around the lips and mouth to minimize these lines or to show less gum when smiling.
If you are interested in learning more about Botox treatments to see if they could be right for you, please contact our Wellesley dental office to schedule an appointment.
