Botox & Dermafill

 

  • Ask us about your personalized Botox® treatment for facial esthetics and relief of TMJ, headaches, and facial pain

  • Botox is used to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles and facial pain caused by muscles in the head and neck

  • The effects of Botox treatment last for approx. 3 months

  • Botox Cosmetic is generally for the top half of the face, and dermal fillers are for the bottom half. The main areas where dermal fillers are used are in the nasolabial folds, the oral commissures, and the marionette lines. These are the areas that frame the teeth and mouth, and are certainly within the realm of dentistry and dental treatment.

  • Dermal fillers are gently placed in these areas through an extraoral injection right under these folds and creases to plump them up

Dental Implants

 

  • Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth

  • They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile

  • Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body

  • They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth

  • Most patients find that a dental implant is secure, stable and a good replacement for their own tooth

ClearCorrect

 

  • ClearCorrect clear aligners straighten teeth invisibly, without metal braces

  • Clear aligners show off your smile, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them

  • It’s easy to remove aligners and eat whatever you like

  • Treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case
