Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox is an injectable cosmetic made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected beneath the surface of your skin, Botox goes to work preventing nerve signals from reaching the muscles in your face. 

Over time, this allows your muscles to relax, smoothing out the appearance of forehead wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet. The results of Botox aren’t permanent, but they last an average of three to four months. 

What happens during a Botox appointment?

The team at Ghobadi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery administers Botox on-site in their comfortable facilities. An appointment typically takes between 15-20 minutes. 

Before administering your Botox injections, your provider reviews your medical history and asks about your aesthetic goals for treatment. 

Botox is only effective at treating dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement, so if you’re trying to address a loss of facial volume, you might want to consider dermal fillers instead.

Following your consultation, your provider develops a treatment plan and administers a series of injections. You may feel a slight burning sensation at first, but most patients say any discomfort is quite minimal. 

If you have a low pain tolerance, your provider can also inject a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.

How is Botox used in dentistry?

In addition to facial cosmetics, the team at Ghobadi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery uses Botox to treat patients suffering from TMJ, bruxism, and chronic facial pain. 

Your dentist might also recommend Botox to complement aesthetic dentistry. For example, if you have a high lip line, Botox can help you retrain your facial muscles.

Can a dentist inject Botox safely?

Yes. All of the providers at Ghobadi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery are trained and certified in the administration of intraoral anesthetic injections. As a result, they’re also capable of administering extraoral cosmetic injections. 

In addition, the team received extensive training in dental school on facial anatomy, physiology, skeletal structures, and the vascular and nervous systems of the face. 

Your Ghobadi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery provider develops a Botox treatment plan that aligns with your unique health history and goals. 

Is Botox safe?

Yes. Botox cosmetic is backed by over 16 years of published clinical studies. In addition, Botox is approved for treatment in 98 countries worldwide and has been the focus of over 528 medical and scientific peer-reviewed studies. 

When you invest in Botox, you can feel confident knowing you’ll achieve stunning yet subtle results.
