What is Botox?
Botox is a protein that relaxes muscles and, most often, is used to reduce wrinkles in the skin. It’s derived from a bacterium, clostridium botulinum, that can be found in many different natural substances. When receiving Botox injections in treatment, a small dose is given that is only temporary.

Is Dental Botox Safe?
Dentists are experts of the muscle and bone architecture of the face. They have trained for many years and have a background that equips them with the ability to achieve more precise and natural-looking results than other Botox providers. There are many providers out there, but not all have had extensive training, which is something you definitely want with a substance as delicate as Botox.
To properly correct lip lines, puckered chins, and upside down or gummy smiles, it’s important that only the right facial muscles are treated. Failure to do so can result in frozen, strange or awkward results. Dental Botox is basically a Botox treatment done in a dental office, where you are receiving your treatment from someone trained in oral and maxillofacial health. Dental Botox is the best and safest way to receive a Botox treatment.

Too many people look for services that are the cheapest they can find. If something is incredibly cheap (especially when it involves your health), then it’s probably not worth it.
