Dr. Benjamin Silva provides BOTOX® treatments to improve your appearance as well as your oral function. BOTOX is a versatile treatment and can be used for anything from removing lines and wrinkles to treating TMJ disorders. When you visit Silva Dentistry, our dentist will consult with you to determine if BOTOX is a good option for you.
BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a cosmetic injectable. This medication is injected into the muscles of the brow to smooth frown lines and help reduce lines and wrinkles between the brows. This gives you a younger, calmer and more alert appearance.
BOTOX has also been approved by the FDA for treatments of other conditions, including TMJ disorders, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) and chronic migraines. When used to treat these conditions, BOTOX works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the tension and contractions that contribute to those conditions.
Because BOTOX is a cosmetic injectable, it does not require incisions, stitches or surgery. You will be able to resume your daily routine directly following your appointment. Our team will simply inject the medication into a strategically chosen location. We may use ice or a topical numbing cream to ensure that you are completely comfortable. If you are receiving BOTOX for cosmetic reasons, you can expect to begin noticing improvements 24 to 48 hours after treatment and for those results to last up to four months. If you have received BOTOX to treat a TMJ disorder or other condition, you may require several treatments to reach the desired results.
