Botox and Dermal Fillers
Botulinum toxin (Botox) has been safely used in medicine for a number of years. As periodontists we have acquired advanced training in facial esthetics as well as the use of Botox for optimization of smiles. It can also be used to relax strained muscles of the jaw that contribute to clenching and grinding.
Dermal fillers are used to add volume in the face and occasionally intraorally. They usually consist of hyaluronic acid and typically last anywhere from 6 to 24 months after which they have naturally dissolved.
If you have an interest in improving your facial or oral esthetics, we can customize a plan including the use of selective Botox and dermal fillers where appropriate.
