Orthodontists and Wrinkle Treatment

Orthodontists who offer botulinum toxin injections have received special training to administer this drug. 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.

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin 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 botulinum toxin injections. This can help you feel better about your smile.

How much medicine 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 botulinum toxin. They can help you create a treatment plan that fits your budget.

Asking About Treatment

If you’re considering getting botulinum toxin, 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?
