Botox and Juvederm – First Choice Dental Center
Dermal fillers are used specifically to address signs of facial aging, but can also be an alternative therapy for TMJ dysfunction. From smoothing wrinkles and eliminating crow’s feet, to treating migraines and jaw pain, Botox® therapy and fillers ensure comfort and renewed aesthetic. At First Choice Dental Center, we provide Botox® and Juvederm® in Jeffersontown as versatile treatments for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes.
Aesthetic Treatments with Botox® and Juvederm®
As we age, wrinkles and laugh lines commonly form. However, many patients prefer to retain a smooth, youthful aesthetic. Botox® and Juvederm® offer a non-surgical treatment to restore youthfulness to targeted facial areas.
Wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth are caused by the use of facial muscles and loss of skin elasticity during the natural aging process. Our cosmetic dentist applies Botox® to specific areas of concern to even out facial lines, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
While Botox® relaxes tense muscles, Juvederm® is a filler that incorporates hyaluronic acid, which can be added to add volume to cheeks, smooth fine lines, and fill in severe facial wrinkles. If you find that your lips have thinned over time, Dr. Votteler provides Juvederm® treatment to for a fuller effect and to enhance the overall appearance of your smile.
Non-Invasive TMD Therapy in Jeffersontown
At First Choice Dental Center, these injectables are not only used to enhance your appearance but also to restore comfortable jaw function. Your temporomandibular joint is responsible for helping you chew, speak, and smile. However, if this joint becomes damaged, the resulting symptoms make daily jaw movement difficult. Pain in the face, neck, head, and jaw, as well as clicking noises when moving the joint, are many symptoms of TMD.
Dr. Votteler can apply Botox® to the jaw to restore comfort for patients suffering from TMD. This quick treatment alleviates tightness and soreness, relaxing the muscles to make chewing and talking easier. This is also an alternative option to wearing custom mouth guards at night.
Once treatment is applied, it’s important to follow post care instructions for a few hours after your appointment. This will allow Botox® to work in the areas specifically targeted and prevent the treatment from shifting. Results can last up to five months. We invite you back to our practice to receive additional treatment if needed.
