Our cosmetic treatments don’t just address the shape and color of your teeth. We also have treatments that can help remove fine lines and wrinkles, so you gain a more youthful appearance. These can also aid in the treatment of issues related to jaw joint strain, such as TMJ disorder and bruxism. In today’s blog, your Seattle, WA, dentist looks at Botox, Liplase, and Smoothlase.
A Youthful Appearance and TMJ Relief
These treatments can offer cosmetic benefits, as we’ll discuss further on. But often, they can help address oral health concerns too. Botox helps fight common signs of aging by blocking chemical signals that cause facial muscle contractions. But that means we can also use these as a treatment for TMJ disorder or bruxism, as these jaw joint disorders often occur due to stress and strain on your jaw joints. Since Botox can ease the strain in your facial muscles, this can aid in preventing the painful symptoms of both TMJ disorder and bruxism, working alongside an oral appliance to offer relief.
Our Facial Esthetics Treatment Options
As we touched on above, we have Botox to help ease facial movements and fight the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes, nose, and mouth. This allows you to look more youthful. The effects last about six months on average, so this can be re-administered during your routine checkup visits.
Our team also offers Smoothlase, which is administered through the use of laser dentistry to offer care with comfort and to minimize the healing period, so you return to normal activities much faster. The treatment helps produce collagen in your chin and mouth, which improves elasticity and limits the appearance of wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
A similar treatment is also offered with Liplase, which again uses dental lasers to administer treatment by encouraging the development of collagen in your lips. Creating this natural collagen offers a fuller appearance in the lips, and a better balance between the upper and lower lips. No need for injectables to create a younger appearance around your mouth, and the healing period is fast, so you don’t experience an interruption in your usual routine.
If you have any questions about how we use treatments like Botox or our laser procedures to offer a younger appearance, or if you would like to schedule a visit with our team, then contact our team today to learn more.
