Bowtie Dental in Grand Rapids, MI, Dr. Langellier and our staff are trained to use Botox in our dentist office. Botox is an FDA-approved product commonly used to smooth facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes, around the corners of the eyes and around the lips. Botox is injected into the facial muscles and blocks the transmitters that cause muscle contractions that create wrinkles. The effects of the treatment last approximately three to four months.
Beyond cosmetic benefits, its use can help patients with their oral health care, as well. It can be injected into the facial muscles for a non-surgical alternative to treating the pain associated with TMJ and bruxism. Additionally, Botox can be used as an alternative to surgically treating patients with high lip lines, patients having trouble adjusting to new dentures, lip augmentation, and even in orthodontic cases where retraining of the facial muscles is necessary.
Dr. Langellier is happy to discuss our Botox services offered at Bowtie Dental.
