At Hudson Place Dental Dr. Standridge is happy to offer therapeutic and cosmetic Botox® treatment.

Botox® is a purified protein (not a dermal filler) that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a smoothed and improved appearance.  It involves a small injection into the muscle to block nerve impulses that trigger muscle contractions.  It is a simple, quick, and minimally invasive treatment that delivers results.  Botox® is not permanent and the effects are seen 3-10 days following treatment.

Cosmetic Botox Treatments

Cosmetic Botox treatment can prevent and soften fine lines and wrinkles caused by the contraction of facial muscles.

Some treatment areas include:

  • Forehead
  • Between the eyebrows
  • Brow lifting
  • Around they eyes, “crow’s feet”
  • Chin
  • Around the mouth
  • Reduction of a “gummy smile”

Thereapeutic Botox Treatments

Temporomandibular disorders, teeth clenching, teeth grinding, headaches, migraines and muscle spasms are often complex conditions that require interdisciplinary treatment from physicians, orthopedics, oral surgeons, dentists, orthodontists, physiotherapists, or chiropractors. Some patients with these conditions can find relief of their symptoms with therapeutic Botox treatment. After a thorough discussion of medical history and previous or adjunctive therapies, we may decide that BOTOX® could be a beneficial additional treatment for your condition.
