Therapeutic Botox


Your smile says a lot about you and the straightest set of teeth can be impaired by wrinkles around your mouth? Is your reflection maintaining a youthful appearance that matches your dazzling smile? For these esthetic concerns, and other useful applications, we offer THERAPEUTIC BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, and RESTYLANE® injections at our Forked River advanced cosmetic dentistry practice.

Why Would a Dentist Offer Wrinkle Fillers?

Dentists have extensive training on giving facial injections. Most dentists administer facial injections multiple times a day. They have a in-depth understanding of neck and facial muscles and how they work so who would be better to give dermal filler injections than a dentist? In addition to having lots of experience giving gentle, facial injections, Dr. LouAnn Van Liew has gone through hands on training and is fully certified to administer cosmetic dermal fillers.  

How do Dermal Fillers Fit into Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many people are familiar with the basic concept of dermal fillers. THERAPEUTIC BOTOX, JUVÉDERM, and RESTYLANE applications are often used to smooth wrinkles, such as frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow's feet. Because of their facial focused aesthetic enhancement ability, dentists are starting to offer them to complement their cosmetic dentistry work as well as to help in other dental related areas. The truth is, there are many applications for dermal fillers in cosmetic dentistry. They  can also be used to treat chronic pain such as TMJ disorders and bruxism. THERAPEUTIC BOTOX can be comfortably injected into facial muscles affected by soreness and discomfort associated with either bruxism or TMJ disorder. THERAPEUTIC BOTOX will help reduce or eliminate headaches from teeth grinding (bruxism), and in cases of very severe jaw stress, THERAPEUTIC BOTOX can even be used to minimize lock jaw. 

Another use for  fillers are to help fill out the cheeks of denture patients who are experiencing a sunken facial appearance due to jaw bone density loss. Sunken cheeks often make the patient look many years older than they actually are and fillers can help.
