Botox has proved helpful in relieving pain and discomfort of TMJ and bruxism cases, especially for patients who are experiencing facial pain and moderate chronic temporomandibular joint pain. San Ramon Dentist Dr. Khandaqji’s a Member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) has also been trained in esthetic improvements. It is also very useful in easing the pain from TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) disorders and relief from migraines and various other dentally related headaches. It provides the convenience of getting regular treatment during your routine dental hygiene visit, and is great for those who are curious but can’t get themselves to a cosmetic surgeon’s office. In as little as one visit, Dr. Khandaqji can erase lines and wrinkles from around the mouth, ease pesky crow’s feet, and minimize stress lines on your forehead.
Another application of Botox is its use in conjunction with a dermal filleras a treatment for gummy smiles. Traditionally, dentists have used periodontal surgery to treat gummy smiles, but Botox and dermal fillers offer an effective non-surgical alternative .Once a dermal filler is applied for lip augmentation along with Botox therapy, the lip cannot be raised as high because the muscles surrounding the lip are weaker. Correctly performed, the patient is unable to raise the upper lip to expose the gums but still has full capacity to chew, speak and kiss.
