We are fortunate at Art of Cosmetic Dentistry in Buckhead to be able to offer our patients the opportunity to have Botox treatments. Botox is a prescription medication that can be used to treat TMJ problems as well as to do cosmetic improvements like address frown lines or wrinkles. The treatment is a relatively quick and painless procedure that should only be performed by a trained provider who has expertise in facial anatomy. This technique sensitive procedure should not prevent facial expression, but should relax the muscle tissue in the involved areas. As a dentist, Dr. Morgan is well versed in the muscle tissue of the face, and he has taken over 60 hours of hands on training with the manufacturer to permit him to perform this procedure. The treatments should take no more than 10-20 minutes, and you will be offered a topical anesthetic to increase your comfort. It can take up to 5-7 days to see the results, but they can last as long as four months. All patients are not candidates for Botox injections. There are allergy and medical prohibitions as well as significant side effects for some patients. Please see BotoxCosmetic.com for more information prior to seeking treatment.
