Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic and medical treatment that uses injectables for a variety of purposes. Botox contains botulinum toxin type A, a substance that relaxes specific tissues to reduce signs of aging or eliminate discomfort. The Reality Bites Dental team is highly trained in administering Botox injections and tailors each treatment to your individualized needs. 


What is Botox used for?

Botox injections at Reality Bites Dental are typically used for:

  • Reduced lines and wrinkles
  • Less jaw pain
  • Diminished symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Reduced jaw tension
  • Less muscle tightness
  • Fewer headaches and migraines
  • Less lockjaw related to stress
  • Reduced teeth wear due to clenching and grinding
  • Less anxiety
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced tooth sensitivity

The practice provides trigger point therapy for issues related to TMJ, minimizing tenderness and pain in your face, jaw, head, and neck. 

Botox injections are simple and fast. You can easily schedule them during your lunch break or even before or after work, as there’s no downtime needed afterward. 


Am I a candidate for Botox injections?

The Reality Bites Dental experts discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and goals. They examine your teeth, bite, gums, and jaw and discuss bothersome symptoms you may have before customizing a treatment plan.


What should I expect during Botox injections?

The process for receiving Botox injections often lasts about 10-20 minutes, depending on the number of injections needed. Your dentist numbs the treatment area if necessary and injects Botox into targeted tissues while you relax comfortably. 


What happens after Botox treatments?

Botox injections are noninvasive, meaning you can return to work, driving, and other daily activities immediately afterward. Common (temporary) side effects near the injection site include redness, tenderness, and swelling. It’s important to avoid touching the treatment area, as doing so can spread the botulinum toxin to other parts of your body. 


You can expect results within several days after treatment.

While botox injections typically last several months, sometimes longer, repeat injections provide long-lasting relief. When the results of Botox wear off, call the Reality Bites Dental office to schedule your next treatment session.
