Botox Cosmetic & Botox Therapeutic Services
Oyler Family Dentistry is now offering both Botox Cosmetic and Botox Therapeutic services to help patients look and feel their very best. If you’re interested in learning more about how Botox therapies can help you, please don’t hesitate to contact our Lawrenceburg dentistry practice to schedule a consultation. We’ll evaluate your situation and help you determine whether or not Botox is right for your unique needs.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
The most common procedure associated with Botox injections is the reversal of aging signs like fine lines and wrinkles. Think of your skin like a newly made bed. Right after you make the bed, it’s smooth and unruffled. If you sit on it once or twice, the sheets and blankets are easily smoothed back out, but after repeated use, the sheets and blankets stay wrinkled even when you smooth them. Your skin works in much the same way. When you’re a child, the skin is smooth and wrinkle free. Over time, repeated movements (both conscious and unconscious) cause the wrinkles that used to smooth right back out to deepen, leaving creases in your flawless skin. That’s where Botox Cosmetic comes in. Regular Botox injections, about three times each year, will reduce the number of unconscious muscle movements and decrease fine lines and wrinkles.
Chronic Headaches & Migraines
One of the earliest medical uses for Botox was in treatment for chronic headaches and migraines. We are happy to provide these services for patients as well. With a few simple injections, patients typically begin to feel better and notice significant reduction in the number and severity of headache days. Each person’s health and response to Botox are different, so we will customize headache and migraine therapies to address your unique needs. Some patients do fine with just one or two injections a year, but others will need to visit for follow ups every few months.
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the small connective tissues that attach the jaw to the skull bone. When strained or damaged, the TMJ may begin to tighten making it difficult to open and close the mouth, cause pain when opening and closing the mouth, or lead to radiating head, neck, and back pain. These symptoms are indicative of TMJ dysfunction. This oral health condition may be caused or aggravated by unconscious jaw movements. Targeted Botox Therapeutic injections halt these additional jaw movements, relieve pain, and reduce strain on the TMJ.
Why Visit Dr. Oyler
When you think of Botox, do you imagine taking a trip to your local dental office? Many patients would say no, but actually, dentists are probably the ideal practitioners to provide Botox Cosmetic and Botox Therapeutic injections. Every dentist has advanced training and education that allows for a more complete understanding of how the oral and facial structures function as a whole than most other medical doctors. In our office, Dr. Brian Oyler has completed extensive training that allows him to provide Botox treatments for wrinkle reduction as well as headache, migraine, and TMJ therapy. Dr. Oyler studied under Dr. Martin Braun. Dr. Braun is a medical doctor who has performed more Botox procedures than any other practitioner in Canada. He leads the Vancouver Skin & Laser Center training programs for dentists and medical doctors who want to learn how to provide safe, effective Botox treatments.
