Botox Treatment

Helping you achieve your best.

Dr. Perry Patel is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) to administer Botox and dermal filler injections.

Botox in dentistry is used to correct a wide range of orofacial conditions such as tooth clenching and grinding, tongue tension, temporomandibular joint disorders, commonly referred to as TMJ, and other disorders that involve chewing, the tongue, ability to open and close the jaw and the headaches that accompany these conditions.

Botox injections are a popular solution for cosmetic needs and have gained significant recognition as a solution for migraine headaches. Botox is used in appropriately certified dental offices as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

The application of Botox in dentistry is increasing and can be an alternative when other treatments have failed. The use of Botox is not new to dentistry or to the treatment of orofacial disorders. A review of Botox therapy in dentistry published in 2015 in the Journal of International Oral Health cites the 1989 report “Botulinum Toxin Injection for the treatment of Oromandibular Dystonia,” as one of the sources for the report. Oromandibular dystonia is characterized by contractions of the face, jaw, or tongue causing difficulty in opening and closing the mouth. In recent years Botox has gained recognition as an effective treatment for TMJ.

Dr. Patel is certified by the AAFE to administer Botox injections to help patients get relief from a wide range of orofacial conditions. The American Academy of Facial Esthetics is a professional healthcare organization with the mission to teach the best non-surgical and non-invasive facial injectable techniques to healthcare professionals worldwide. The AAFE is comprised of physicians, dentists, nurses and other healthcare professionals committed to providing the best possible outcomes in areas of facial esthetics and facial pain treatment.

Dentists receive rigorous training in head and neck anatomy, oral pathology and dental esthetics. Because dentists can inject in the mouth and routinely inject around the face, they are fully equipped for procedures far riskier than Botox injections. Discussing Botox with patients is important, as many patients don’t know it may be a possibility to alleviate some dental concerns. As with any procedure, proper training and education are required to safely and effectively provide Botox treatments to patients.

Dr. Patel is also certified by the AAFE to provide dermal filler injections.

Dermal fillers are used to replace the loss of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and restore facial contours and improve signs of aging.

Dermal fillers replace lost hyaluronic acid, which is the body’s natural filler substance. As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid and the face starts to show this loss with deeper nasolabial folds, marionette lines and thinning lips. Dermal fillers can be injected to replace the lost volume, creating a younger look. Dermal fillers can be used for lip augmentation, asymmetrical lips and for completing certain dentistry procedures to frame the bright new smile that comes with successful dental procedures.

Medical-grade skincare products give patients even more options for reversing the signs of aging skin. These products are designed to provide deep treatment solutions for patients with serious skin issues or concerns about fine lines and wrinkles. These products can only be purchased from medical and dental professionals who are also monitoring the effect the product is having.

The effect of dermal fillers typically last anywhere from six to 12 months and can be repeated. Botox and dermal fillers procedures take anywhere from five to 15 minutes.

Why see a dentist for dermal fillers?

  • Dentists receive extensive training in head and neck anatomy, oral pathology and dental pathologies that affect the appearance of the face.
  • Dentists know how to make these injections comfortable, quick, and relatively painless.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein used to relax muscle activity. This can decrease wrinkles and lessen TMJ muscle pain, clenching and bruxism. Botox is also used for migraine therapy.

 

What are Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is the bodies’ natural filler substance. As we age, we lose this filler and start seeing sagging cheeks, deeper facial folds and thinner lips. Fillers are injected into specific facial areas to replenish our youthful volume.
