Can Dentists Offer Botox? 100% Yes!

And it makes a lot of sense.

Your benefit is fourfold when you get Botox injections from your dentist:

First, is comfort.

Dentists are experts at performing injections in sensitive areas.  It’s one thing to get a shot in your arm, but it’s a totally different experience to get shot in your face or mouth.  Dr. Kososki has performed thousands of painless injections on some of the most sensitive areas of the face and mouth.  Dentists like him are uniquely qualified to administer Botox.

Second, is competence.

Dentists have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues.  They understand how all of your musculoskeletal structures above the neck combine to make your face uniquely yours.

Third, is convenience.

When you bundle Botox injections with dental services and checkups, you save a trip to a separate practitioner.

Fourth, you get better overall care when you bundle your dental services and Botox injections.

Here’s why:

Compared to a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, your dentist already has a unique and detailed understanding of your face.  All of the scans, dental mapping, and assessments don’t just map your teeth and gums…they collect data and images that inform your dentist about your entire facial structure.

If you’re considering Botox as a gift this holiday season or interested in treatment for yourself, getting Botox from your dentist offers unique advantages in terms of comfort, convenience, value, and overall quality.

So, What Exactly is Botox and How Does it Work?

Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that is injected into various points in facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and improve appearance.

Botox injections use a toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA to temporarily prevent a muscle from moving. This toxin is produced by the microbe that causes botulism, a type of food poisoning. But don’t worry, in the hands of a qualified practitioner like a dentist or a plastic surgeon, onabotulinumtoxinA works miracles when it comes to wrinkles.

Botox works by blocking signals from nerves to the muscles so that the muscles can no longer contract.  With the muscles relaxed, your skin softens in high-stress points on your face. Imagine getting rid of frown lines or crow’s feet during your dental visit!

However, Botox results are not permanent. They typically last four to six months. The treatment requires periodic visits in order to maintain the smooth appearance.

The best part about Botox is that it is safe and has few side effects, according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology report on Botox.

If you decide to get Botox treatments alongside over 1 million American men and women every year, it’s important to choose the right provider.  While Botox is a powerful treatment option for reversing wrinkles, it needs to be administered by skilled hands.  Dentists like Dr. Kososki are uniquely qualified to handle your Botox needs.
