As BOTOX® continues to grow in popularity, it is becoming more common place for patients to seek it out at their local dental office. For many reasons, it is one of the medical professions that most closely aligns with the practice of BOTOX® administration. Dentists are well versed in the anatomy of facial muscles – even training on cadavers in both dental school and for BOTOX®. We are trained in visualizing fine details and masters at precision. Dentistry and BOTOX® also go hand in hand because of both its facial esthetic and dental functions, with the growth of cosmetic dentistry, it makes sense to round out a beautiful smile with smoothing of facial lines. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, dentists are experts in giving precise injections – we do this all day every day!
What can you expect if you make a BOTOX® appointment at Echo Family Dental? BOTOX® will be administered to carefully planned areas by a series of small shallow injections. Most patients say that it is MUCH easier than dental anesthetic injections. It can take about three to ten days for full results to be apparent, which last around three to four months.
