Here at Modern Dentistry, we are proud to offer Botox injections, a relatively new and successful procedure used in dentistry, for our patients.
How does it work?
Botulinum Toxin A, the scientific name for Botox, provides a buffer to neurotransmitters within the injected muscles, lessening the signal to contract. This releases wrinkles and folds around the injection sites.
The full effects of Botox can take 2-14 days to fully develop and can last up to 6 months.
Patients may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Common side effects, as with all injectable products, include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and itching at the injection site. Most side effects resolve themselves naturally within 24 hours.
