You might not think of scheduling an appointment with the dentist to get a Botox treatment, but Botox actually has a wide range of applications and uses. In addition to being a go-to cosmetic treatment, Botox has several medical uses as well. At ONE Dental, we strive to be more than just a dental clinic, and we offer Botox treatments to our clients to address a variety of aesthetic and medical concerns.

What Is Botox?

Botox is the brand name of an injectable form of botulinum toxin. This is a toxin produced by a species of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum, which is responsible for botulism. Although it might sound worrisome, Botox injections have been FDA approved and safely used since 2002 to address various cosmetic and medical concerns.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox works by delivering small doses of botulinum toxin to target muscle groups. The toxin blocks certain chemical neurotransmitters from being released, paralyzing and relaxing the targeted muscle groups.

How Botox Can Improve Your Look

Many wrinkles and fine lines that appear on the face develop as a result of the repeated contraction of muscles in forming facial expressions. By relaxing certain muscle groups, Botox treatment results in relaxation and reduction of wrinkles and fine lines when administered to specific locations on the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks, and mouth. Additionally, Botox can also be used to correct a gummy smile. With injections that target specific muscles located in the upper lip, Botox can help to relax your smile, revealing a more aesthetically pleasing gum line.

How Botox Can Improve Your Health

In addition to helping rejuvenate your appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, Botox also has a variety of medical applications to which patients of ONE Dental also enjoy access.
