Botox & Dermal Fillers
Botox and Dermal Fillers
Our team at Oak Hollow Family Dentistry is pleased to offer the opportunity for our patients in Draper, Utah, to receive high-quality dermal fillers and Botox treatments. Both of these treatments are beneficial in many ways, including cosmetic enhancement and repairing facial aesthetics.
Members of our team have been trained and educated on the exact ways to safely and effectively place injections to help improve quality of life. Injections are minimally invasive and can have impressive, beautiful results.
Botox is often used in dentistry to help repair facial aesthetics and give patients the smile that they are excited to show off. Botox is a protein that is used to relax muscles and can be used to temporarily reduce wrinkles in the skin on the face. Although the effects of Botox are beautiful, consistent treatments are necessary to maintain results.
In dentistry, Botox is mainly used to relieve pain or temporarily resolve muscle-generated dental diseases, treating high lip lines, or helping patients adjust to new dentures.
Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers and wrinkle fillers, create a fuller and more rejuvenated look in the face. They are also used to create a smoother face by filling in nasolabial folds, which are the lines that extend from the edges of the mouth to the sides of the nose. Dermal fillers are only injected into the top or first layer of the skin.
Dermal fillers are specifically designed to treat signs of aging. For example, Dermal fillers can correct:
- Shadow caused by the lower eyelid
- Thinning or creased lips
- Recessed scars
- Wrinkles or shallow areas of the face
Speak to a Professional
At Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, our dentist is specifically trained and educated in dermal fillers. It is important to only receive facial Botox or dermal fillers from a licensed professional who uses FDA-approved materials. Approved dermal fillers naturally absorb over time, requiring the patient, if they desire, to continue receiving treatment to maintain their desired look.
In your next appointment with us, please ask for more information about our Botox treatments and dermal fillers. Our dental professionals will work closely with you in deciding what the best options would be for you. Please call us with any questions or concerns that you may have regarding professional Botox or dermal fillers. We are here, happy and ready to help you in whatever way we can.
Muscle-Generated Dental Diseases
Diseases such as bruxism, clenching, and TMJ disorder put a lot of tension on facial muscles, which can cause muscle pain, tension headaches, and sharp pain in the jaw. Botox prevents the release of a neurotransmitter causing temporary, controlled muscle paralysis. Injections relieve the tension the facial muscles carry, therefore eliminating pain.
