Botox® Treatments

botox injections are available at norman smile center
Norman Smile Center is proud to offer Botox as both a cosmetic and medical treatment. In addition to providing Botox to treat facial fine lines and wrinkles, Drs. Campbell and Sparks administer Botox injections to treat clenching and grinding, or bruxism.

Botox is a medical grade botulinum toxin that when administered in safe amounts into the muscles under the skin can treat crow’s feet, brow furrows and muscle pain from clenching and grinding. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, relaxing the muscles so that the skin does not wrinkle and minimizes muscle clenching.

 

Botox to treat TMD and Bruxism

The tension and pressure of persistent clenching and grinding constantly engages the large chewing muscles of the jaw, causing them to strengthen and become even more active, similar to how the muscles in your body respond to weightlifting. The more often and intensely you clench and grind your teeth, the harder it is for your chewing muscles to relax.

Botox injections can help relieve the pain and tension associated with TMD and bruxism. Botox injections into the large chewing muscles of the jaw can relax and decrease amount the muscles can function. Patients can still chew and speak normally, but the Botox prevents the muscles from clenching as hard, allowing them to gradually weaken and reduce tension.

Botox can also increase the efficiency and effectiveness of complementary treatments like night guards or other dental appliances.

Botox to treat cosmetic lines and wrinkles

What’s it used for:

  • Anti-Aging- Botox is a powerful and non-invasive anti-aging agent. It targets fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin, and slows down and diminishes the signs of aging.
  • Forehead Wrinkles are horizontal lines that form on the forehead and are another by-product of facial expressions.
  • Frown lines or the “11s” are the vertical lines that form on the lower part of the forehead between the eyebrows.
    Forehead Wrinkles are horizontal lines that form on the forehead and are another by-product of facial expressions.
  • Crow’s feet or laugh lines are on the outer edges of the eyes.

What is a Botox appointment like?

Drs. Campbell and Sparks consult with you regarding your areas of concern and formulate a customized treatment and dosage just for you. Sessions normally last around 10–15 minutes. Botox units are delivered with a fine gauge needle resulting in only slight discomfort.

Is there down time?

No, Botox injections don’t require any downtime. Patients are free to continue with their daily routine immediately after the session. However, patients are asked to refrain from exercise for 4-6 hours and avoid other spa treatments such as facials and saunas for 1-14 after receiving Botox.
