If you are considering getting Botox® treatments, be sure to ask your orthodontist if they offer this service. You may be surprised at how many orthodontic treatments today go beyond straightening teeth!

Orthodontists and Botox®

Learn more about Orthodontists and Botox, Orthodontists who offer Botox® injections have received special training to administer this drug (Botulinum toxin). This makes them a suitable choice because they have the background knowledge needed to perform injections safely and accurately.

They may also be able to assess your facial structure and give you suggestions on how to improve your appearance. If you have wrinkles around your mouth, botulinum toxin can help reduce the appearance of those wrinkles. It can also help to alleviate sore, tense muscles from teeth grinding.

Getting Botox®

Botox® is helpful for both aesthetic and pain-relief purposes. For example, it can help reduce facial wrinkles such as fine lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Orthodontists can also use it to relieve pain from TMJ/TMD, migraines, and teeth grinding.

It can also help improve the appearance of your smile. For example, if you have wrinkles or lines around your mouth, your orthodontist can soften them with Botox® injections. This can help you feel better about your smile.

Botox® Doesn’t Have to be Expensive

Don’t let the cost deter you if you consider getting Botox®. While some places charge a lot for Botox® treatments, many affordable options are also available. How much Botox® you will need and how often you will need to get treatments depends on your individual needs and goals. Talk to your orthodontist about what you hope to achieve with Botox®. They can help you create a treatment plan that fits your budget.

Asking About Botox® Treatment

If you’re considering getting Botox® treatments, you may have a few questions. Here are some questions to ask before your appointment:

  • What are the side effects?
  • How long does treatment last?
  • How much does Botox® cost?
  • What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?

After Treatment

After receiving botulinum toxin treatment, avoid lying down for at least four hours to prevent the medicine from spreading to other muscles. Additionally, refrain from drinking alcohol for 24 hours after treatment. Alcohol can increase bruising and swelling at the injection site.

Treatment typically lasts for about three to four months, and results may vary from person to person. However, you should see results within a week or two after treatment. Below you can learn the Benefits of Orthodontists and Botox.
