At Palmieri Dentistry in Mooresville, NC, we understand our patients have many needs which is why we try to have as many treatments available under one roof as possible. For patients looking for a more youthful appearance, those who dislike their gummy smile, or even those who suffer from headaches, migraines and TMJ can all benefit from our Botox services.
Botox For Cosmetic Use
Botox is great for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and giving patients a more youthful face. Botox can be used to target forehead creases, frown lines between the eyebrows, lip wrinkles and crow’s feet (the corners of eyes). In addition to helping to reduce wrinkles, Botox can also be used to help gummy smiles. The Botox is injected into the lip which paralyzes the lip to prevent it from raising, thus hiding the gummy smile. Patients are still able to chew, kiss and speak normally. Although these are not permanent results, they are non-surgical and effective.
Botox for Headaches, Migraines and TMJ
Patients who suffer from TMJ pain, migraines and headaches have been found to benefit from Botox treatments. The Botox is injected into specific areas to target and prevent the pain areas. To stop pain from redeveloping, it’s recommended the treatment is repeated every 12 weeks.
