Your smile is the first thing people see. Many people suffer from gummy smile, where they have excessive exposure of their gums when they smile. Gummy smiles occur for a variety of reasons, most commonly a short upper lip, excessive gum tissue or small teeth, all of which are genetic. Typically, anything over three to four millimeters of gum showing can look “gummy”. Botox® is a minimally invasive alternative to a gingivectomy, which will soften your smile and reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. Perfect your smile with just a few injections by our nurse, an expert in gummy smile injections. Your results can last up to 4 months and will be noticeable within 72 hours of your injection.
TMJ Relief
Botox® injections are not only for the correction of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles Botox® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, Botox® can even minimize lock jaw.
