What is BOTOX and how does it relate to teeth
BOTOX (trade name for botulinum toxin) cosmetic is a prescription medicine that's injected into muscles used temporarily to improve the look of crow's feet line and frowns between the eyebrows. When it comes to dentistry, the most common benefit of BOTOX is the reduction in the number of clenching events and their intensity. At Legal Ranch Dental in Frisco, we know BOTOX can help reduce the destruction of your teeth, gums and jaw joint. BOTOX can also minimize the discomfort and pain in your face and chewing muscles.
Your dentist knows your face best, so it's not surprising that they can deliver BOTOX injections. Other areas of healthcare use BOTOX as well, it's not just for your dermatologist anymore. BOTOX smoothes facial wrinkles, from forehead to lips to between the eyes and around them. At Legacy Ranch Dental, dentist Dr. Osborne uses it to help treat TMJ disorders/TMD as well as for patients with chronic facial pain. BOTOX at Legacy Ranch Dental is used as a complement to other dental treatments.
Frisco dentist Dr. Osborne explains Juvederm
Juvederm is a gel that's injected into areas of the face that are wrinkled. It's made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Juvederm helps add volume to your face as well as hydration. The injection instantly restores your skin's plumpness and smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles. At Legacy Ranch Dental, we offer Juvederm treatments for those who are looking to have a natural look, not so noticeable. Juvederm is said to defy gravity.

Please note that Juvederm is the only FDA-approved filler to add volume to cheeks for people over 21 years old with results can last up to two years.
