BOTOX Cosmetics Glendale

Under the expert care of Glendale cosmetic dentist Dr. George Sahakyan, you can get BOTOX® injections to reduce your pain associated with severe TMD and TMJ. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections work by temporarily paralyzing muscles in your face that cause or exacerbate some dental conditions and are an FDA-approved treatment. You can get this care right in your own neighborhood at our Glendale Botox dentist office.

At our Glendale dentist office, Dr. Sahakyan offers BOTOX® Cosmetic injections into the facial, masseter, lateral pterygoid, temporalis, occipitalis muscles to reduce involuntary muscle actions such as jaw and tooth grinding. This treatment also helps to reduce headaches associated with TMD and TMJ.

In addition to using BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to help with dental disorders, Dr. Sahakyan can also use this treatment to help you achieve a more aesthetically appealing smile. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections help to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. To do this, the dentist gives you an injection near your upper lip. This works to relax the muscle that pulls the lip up too far when you smile.

BOTOX before and after

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a quick and painless procedure. After getting BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, you can expect to see a bit of a change right away, with full results by two days after your procedure. The results of your treatment with Dr. Sahakyan should last for about four months.

Dr. Sahakyan also offers touch-ups of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections any time you need it. If you desire, Dr. Sahakyan can also use BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to help minimize wrinkles around your eyes, forehead and lips. You can schedule your next appointment during the same visit as your procedure to ensure that you maintain your youthful look as well as the respite from your TMD or TMJ symptoms.
