Botox and Your Dentist: What is the Correlation Between the Two? 

You come to the dentist for the health of your smile and to improve its aesthetic appeal, but did you know there is so much your dentist in Roswell can do to really make your smile shine? Traditionally, Botox was administered by a trained plastic surgeon or dermatologist and used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, since its FDA approval in 2002, it has become a very popular treatment in the anti-aging market with more than 11 million customers.

We've rounded up some of the most common questions about Botox.

What is Botox?

It’s a safe, clinically produced bacterium that is injected into muscles. When injected in small diluted amounts, Botox prevents the muscles from contracting and reduces the look of wrinkles. Within three to five days of treatment, lines and wrinkles relax, giving the face a smoother and happier appearance. Every patient is different, but often Botox treatments typically last three to four months and can be repeated any number of times.

What are the reasons people get Botox?

The primary reason is that people want to fight the signs of aging. This is not a new phenomenon…battling wrinkles has been around for centuries and is most popular among women between the ages of 45-54. However, Botox is not only used now to prevent fine lines and wrinkles; it’s also become popular with younger women who want to slow down the development of them.
