Why Does My Dentist Offer BOTOX® Cosmetic?

botox_logoAccording to Dr. Cathy J. Santone, dentists have been using BOTOX® injections to treat jaw muscle pain for several years now. Since she already has experience using this injectable at our dentistry practice, she decided to expand its use and offer patients the wrinkle reduction benefits that have made BOTOX® Cosmetic so popular. BOTOX® Cosmetic nicely complements the current offerings of our dental practice and allows Dr. Santone to treat an even broader range of dental and facial aesthetic concerns. Since successful BOTOX® Cosmetic results are dependent upon precise injection placement and an understanding of the dose necessary to achieve the intended outcome, dentists can be some of the best administers of the treatment due to their experience using BOTOX® injections to resolve jaw muscle pain.

We are excited to offer our patients at Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry one of the most popular injectable treatments for the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles right here in our office. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, men and women both young and old can help reverse many common signs of age, including crow’s feet, furrows along the brow, and frown lines. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic last approximately three months, and the treatment can usually be performed in 30 minutes. In fact, some patients enjoy the convenience of receiving a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment during the same appointment as their routine dental cleanings or teeth whitening procedures.

Dr. Santone is trained and certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) to administer and treat patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. To learn more about BOTOX® Cosmetic, or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office today.
