A recent report from dentalnews.com states that more and more dentists are administering botox and dermal filler injections in house. “Botox injections can be used for dental treatments such as TMD and Implantology. Dermal fillers can be used when dealing with asymmetrical lips, minimizing underlining skeletal discrepancies and many other uses.”
Although the goal of using botox at the dentist office is primarily for assisting in oral surgeries and implants, it’s unclear at this time as to whether or not it will also be used for common cosmetic practices in the dentist’s office.
If you’re looking at having an oral surgery procedure, adjustment or implantation, ask your dentist if he will be using botox to help with the transition between your mouth and the procedure.
