Botox Alpharetta, GA

Did you know that you can receive Botox® at the dentist? Botox goes hand in hand with our cosmetic dental services. During their dental training, Dr. Angie Hedlund and her dental team learned about the anatomy of the head and neck. Their expertise in the muscles, joints, and vessels in the head and neck allows them to administer Botox injections safely.

Esthetic Dental Solutions provides Botox for patients who want to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. Patients with TMJ disorders also benefit from Botox, especially if they suffer from teeth clenching and grinding or chronic headaches and migraines.

What is Botox?

Also known as botulinum toxin, Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses when injected into the facial muscles. Botox offers non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using Botox in our Alpharetta, GA office, we can address crow’s feet, lipstick lines, forehead creases, neck bands, bunny lines, and more.

Before Botox treatment, Dr. Hedlund will evaluate your skin, and you can discuss your goals. She will numb your face so you will not feel pain during treatment. Then, she uses a very thin needle to target facial muscles that create unwanted wrinkles. Treatment takes fifteen minutes, and there is no downtime following Botox treatment.

Avoid touching or rubbing the injected areas, and do not lie down on your face for about four hours following treatment. You can exercise your facial muscles about an hour after your treatment. Smile, frown, squint, and raise your eyebrows for about 30 seconds to help the Botox injection penetrate the muscles. In most cases, patients will notice results a few days following treatment. Botox often lasts 3 to 6 months.

Botox for TMJ Disorders in Alpharetta, GA

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) are bite disorders that can create joint pain and dysfunction, leading to problems like teeth clenching and grinding, headaches, and jaw pain. Many patients with TMJ disorders experience pain and discomfort in their facial muscles.

Dr. Hedlund can address TMD symptoms with Botox injections. As with cosmetic Botox treatment, Botox treatment for TMD can relax the facial muscles. In turn, this can alleviate pain. You can show her where you experience pain during a consultation with Dr. Hedlund. She can inject Botox into the TMJ muscles, forehead, and temples to alleviate pain from TMD.
