3 Things to Know About Botox

Botox® Abington, PAIf you are like everyone out there, you’ve either already tried Botox, or you want to try it at least once in your life. As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures out there, a lot of our dental patients at McDowell Dental Group want to give it a try but for a different reason. So, while you’re getting your teeth cleaned or whitened, why should you consider getting Botox as well?

Derived from the botulinum toxin A, Botox is most popular for its ability to temporarily soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. But, that’s not the only thing to know about this injection. Let’s delve a little deeper and learn a few more things about Botox.

  1. It’s Used for Other Things

Botox isn’t just used for cosmetic purposes. In fact, here at our McDowell Dental Group office, we use it to treat a variety of oral issues including temporomandibular joint disorder, migraines, and headaches. Once injected into your jaw or forehead, Botox relieves the tension and softens muscles— giving you the relief you’ve been looking for.

  1. It’s Not a Filler

Many patients mistake Botox for dermal fillers— thinking that it works by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. However, Botox works entirely differently— which is why it can be used for other things as well. Once injected into the muscles, Botox works to temporarily block the release of chemicals that signal your muscles to contract which relaxes the muscles and gives patients relief from pain and tension.

  1. It’s Effective

The biggest thing that keeps patients coming back for more and more Botox every few months is that it’s effective. If you have been suffering from headaches, migraines, or TMJ/TMD pain, then Botox can help you find the relief you’ve been looking for.

If you suffer from TMJ, headaches, or migraines, you may want to consider getting Botox injections from McDowell Dental Group. Ready to learn more? Contact our Abington office today at (215) 885-0555.
