Dr. Haim Fedida provides Botox® and dermal fillers in his Jackson Heights, NY dental office. Fillers and Botox are both treatments used to address fine lines and wrinkles. When injected into key areas of the face, they can smooth the skin or add volume. Botox can even be a cosmetic dental solution used to treat TMD or temporomandibular joint disorders. Learn more about how fillers and Botox can rejuvenate the face and even address dental concerns below.
What is Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetic is a treatment that relaxes the face when injected into muscle tissue. This releases tension in the face and smooths the skin. Forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines can be treated with Botox. Our Botox injections offer quick and relatively painless treatment. Patients will see results after two weeks. These results can last for over 6 months.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers add volume and definition to treated areas of the face. They offer a minimally invasive and long-lasting treatment. Fillers reduce the signs of aging by filling in wrinkles or lines in the face. Dermal fillers can also be used to fill lips, cheeks, smile lines, and more.
Treating TMJ Disorders with Botox
Botox can actually be an effective treatment option for TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorders. TMJ disorders create tension in the jaw and facial muscles. This tension can cause a range of painful symptoms, including teeth clenching and grinding, headaches, and jaw pain. TMD can also wear down the teeth. Botox relaxes the facial muscles and can alleviate pain caused by TMD.
Dr. Halim offers Botox as an alternative treatment to oral appliances. He will discuss your treatment plan including the number of injections and any specific concerns during a consultation.
