Botox

Our cosmetic dentistry treatments don’t just include your teeth. We also offer Botox (botulinum toxin) and Dermal Filler treatments. Botox is a safe and approved medicine, registered with the New Zealand Ministry of Health, and it disappears naturally from the body.

Our cosmetic dentistry philosophy is to build on, enhance and restore the best version of your smile. This philosophy also extends to Botox and Dermal Fillers, which we believe should be used to effectively restore a fresher, more youthful and relaxed version of yourself – never to the point where other people can tell you’ve “had work done”.

Why Dentists And Botox?

Why should you choose your dentist for Botox over other providers such as beauty clinics or skin specialists? Simply put, your dentist only works on the face and head and as such are an expert in facial aesthetics. Dentists give facial injections all day long and therefore have an intricate working knowledge of the muscles and tissues, so safely administering Botox and Dermal Fillers is a natural skill.

Botox is an ideal accompaniment to our other cosmetic dental treatments, and in addition to improving aesthetics can also be used to treat different medical conditions.

Treating Muscle Pain With Botox

Many people suffer from the habit of clenching and grinding their teeth. It can be due to a variety of different factors, including stress or anxiety, a crooked bite or sleep apnoea. It causes the teeth to wear, which can lead to fracturing and even tooth loss. It can also cause headaches, neck and back pain as well as sore jaws.

One solution for teeth grinding and clenching at night is to wear a custom-made sleep mouthguard, or nightguard. An excellent alternative to a mouthguard is the use of muscle relaxants in the form of Botox. Small doses of Botox are injected into the large muscle that controls the jaw (masseter muscle), which effectively weakens it enough to stop involuntary clenching and grinding without affecting your ability to chew, eat, drink, swallow or talk. It is a safe and approved method of relaxing the muscle and reducing the wear of teeth as well as muscle aches and tightness.

Improving Facial Aesthetics With Botox

Dysport is an advanced variation of Botox used to treat appearance of wrinkles, including:

  • Forehead creases and frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar frown lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Neck bands

The results are apparent within just 2 – 3 days and can last for up to four months. It is an easy and yet effective way to restore a radiant, rested and more youthful version of yourself that is still completely natural. Your face will still have a full range of movement when laughing, smiling and frowning – just with fewer wrinkles! It’s a great way to restore your glow.
