Botox and PRP Fillers
Did you know that you can get Botox and PRP fillers at your dentist’s office? Most people don’t associate dermal fillers with dentistry. In the recent past, Botox and PRP fillers have started gaining popularity in the field of dentistry. When used to complement other treatments, Botox and PRP fillers offer outstanding effects in improving facial aesthetics and orofacial well-being.
Professional Dental is proud to offer Botox and PRP fillers in Irving, TX. We’re one hundred percent committed to improving your oral health and are always looking into new ways to provide excellent services to our patients. In particular, we have adopted the use of dermal fillers to help patients struggling with various dental problems, including temporomandibular jaw disorders, bruxism, and gummy smiles, among others.
How Do PRP and Dermal Fillers Work?
Botox is a popular cosmetic injectable that works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter that causes muscle contractions. In simpler words, Botox prevents the excessive movement of your muscles, thus preventing the formation of wrinkles. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) fillers work by delivering regenerative growth factors to the skin. As a result, your previously wrinkled, dull, and worn-out skin looks and feels younger, suppler, and healthier.
Botox and PRP fillers are widely accepted in the beauty industry. However, it’s only recently that they have become accepted in the dental field. Professional Dental is happy to be among the pioneers of Botox and PRP fillers in Irving, TX.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
Here at Professional Dental, we use dermal fillers as part of a treatment package. On their own, these fillers cannot fix dental problems. When used together with other forms of therapies, dermal fillers offer excellent results.
For example, patients with gummy smiles can get Botox to relax their lip muscles and achieve a more aesthetically appealing smile without undergoing gingival surgery or crown lengthening. Of course, if your gummy smile is as a result of gum disease, we’ll need to explore further periodontal treatment options.
If you struggle with bruxism and clenching, Botox treatment can help limit the force of your muscle contractions. This way, you can manage this problem without requiring night-time mouthguards.
These are a few of the ways that our dentist uses Botox and PRP fillers to treat patients successfully. The exact details of your treatment are dependent on your diagnosis, which is arrived at after thorough consultation with our dentist.
