After all, if your gums, teeth, and jaws aren’t healthy, it can show on the surface of your face. At our Birmingham office, we’re proud to offer Botox to eliminate the signs of aging.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that can help alleviate some signs of aging in the face. None of us want wrinkles any more than we want a missing tooth. However, there are many of us who start to develop these signs of aging very early in life — some as young as 18! Fortunately, Dr. Maniscalco is trained in administering Botox in order to refresh the looks of your facial skin, eliminating wrinkles temporarily and relaxing the facial muscles in general.
Medical Benefits of Botox
Not only does botox helps alleviate signs of aging, but Botox can also help eliminate certain medical conditions including:
- Neck spasms
- Excessive sweating
- Lazy eyes
- Chronic headaches
- Muscle tension
- Overactive bladder
Botox and TMJ
In addition to treating medical conditions, Botox is an approved treatment for a temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMD. TMD is a very painful problem that can lead to chronic discomfort in the teeth, neck, jaw, face, and head. It can cause bruxism (teeth grinding) and lead to dental damage as well.
Botox can alleviate pain and relax the muscles in the TMJ area. If you’ve been experiencing TMD for a long time, you may have developed a habit of frowning, causing you to develop wrinkles between the brows and around your face. Botox can help improve the appearance of your face while alleviating TMD symptoms.
Frequently Asked Questions
Botox is painless, minimally invasive, safe, and effective. However, it’s important to note that the treatment uses needles and some patients may feel uneasy or uncomfortable during the procedure.
Botox is a temporary solution, however, one treatment can last up to three months depending on the patient’s circumstances. While this treatment provides momentary relief, it can be repeated every few months for favorable results.
