COSMETIC DENTISTRY IN MOBILE

MOST PEOPLE ASSUME THAT BOTOX and dermal filler procedures belong in a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist’s practice. While both were the first healthcare providers to integrate Botox, it does not make these procedures specific to only them.

There may be no health professional who is better to give injections than your place for cosmetic dentistry in Mobile, Alabama. Dentists are the best injectors because they inject them regularly and know how to make them comfortable, quick, and painless for their patients.

Read on and learn how Noblet Cosmetic and Family Dentistry can address all of your needs.

What is Botox, and how does it work?

Botox is a non-invasive injectable remedy known as neuromodulators. Botox temporarily blocks specific nerve chemical signals that cause muscles to tighten. The most common use is to calm intense facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. The FDA has approved Botox Cosmetic for the treatment of wrinkles since 2002.

How long does Botox last?

In general, Botox lasts 3-4 months. It can last from 4-6 months in some patients, or possibly shorter. It is common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment. The exact length depends on how quickly your body will metabolize the neurotoxins.

What conditions can Botox fix?

SIGNS OF AGING

Drs. Richard and Charles Noblet and Dr. Wasserman, provide cosmetic dentistry in Mobile, Alabama, and administer Botox to people who are interested in reducing signs of aging visible on their faces.

These signs include frown lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and other minor imperfections. Botox pairs perfectly with other cosmetic dental work like teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and full mouth reconstructions.

CORRECTING A GUMMY SMILE

A gummy smile happens to people when their upper lip lifts above their teeth too much, exposing the upper gums.

This issue usually happens because of a hyperactive muscle in the upper lip. Botox injected into the muscle temporarily paralyzes the hyperactivity. The lip can finally relax, resulting in less exposed gums and a beautiful smile you deserve. 

TREATING MIGRAINES

Botox is injected into the temples, scalp, and forehead to relax the muscles for migraine relief. The injection can also block pain signals that are transmitted to your brain. Migraines take a massive toll on the quality of life and productivity. So, the relief that a migraine sufferer can get from a Botox injection could last anywhere from four to six months.  

COMBATING EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Excessive sweating under the arms, in the palms of the hands, and soles of the feet pose a significant threat to some people’s day-to-day lives. Botox injections are a great way to block the chemical signals for over-productive sweat glands. Botox provides a way to stop the excess moisture and even decrease body odor.

PREVENTING WRINKLES

Botox injections can reduce wrinkles on the face. Still, they are also an excellent way to prevent wrinkles or delay their development. For that reason, younger people come to Noblet Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Mobile for Botox treatments to hinder wrinkles and other unwanted signs of aging.
