Are you surprised Polished Dental can offer BOTOX ?

Wondering why a dentist would offer these services?

BOTOX is a trusted product, administered over 7 million times a year and has been in the market for over 13 years. The most common uses for BOTOX is smoothing of the facial wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and lines around the lips. These most common cosmetic uses have put the treatment on the aesthetic map, but did you know that BOTOX is also a helpful tool to your dentist? When you first hear that you can be treated with BOTOX at your dentist’s office it may sound strange, as dentists haven’t done much marketing for the service and product, but consider some facts about your dentist:

  • Dentists are trained doctors and practiced in the facial musculoskeletal systems.
  • Dentists precisely understand your face muscles.
  • Dentists are already trained and experienced at using BOTOX to treat dental problems like TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders and reducing fatigue of teeth clenching with the use of BOTOX.
  • Your dentist is already a trusted and knowledgeable provider of BOTOX for multiple facial needs!

So how can getting BOTOX from your dentist help you?

Primarily used in the face, around your eyes and mouth areas, BOTOX helps relieve headaches and muscle tension stress along with the wrinkles associated with them.  Your dentist is focused on making sure you maintain a healthy smile that makes you feel good. You can benefit from the extensive musculoskeletal education and training your dentist has to reduce frown lines and the look of aging to brighten up your smile and your face.

Just like other physicians who are licensed and trained in providing injections, dentists are health care practitioners who deliver professional health and wellness services to patients. Dr. Jim & Dr. Kristin received their certificates for completed training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to offer BOTOX to patients as a stand-alone service or as a compliment to cosmetic dentistry. As qualified and experienced dentists, they are very well-trained in the musculature and anatomy of the face and are proud to offer thoughtful, well placed injections to our valued patients.
