At Henrich Dental we can administer Botox® treatments to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead, and sides of the eyes. It can also be used to treat TMJ Disorder as well as other facial pain. These types of procedures have become very common in dental offices because we have the skills and experience to use small needles with precision. More than that, we have an unmatched understanding of the facial muscles and structures. This is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, and the results are well worth it.
Botox is used to help you minimize wrinkles and smooth out the contours of your face. Botox can also be a prescribed medication that blocks the release of the chemicals that cause specific muscles to contract. The result is softened frown lines and a more youthful appearance.
This is a temporary procedure, just like teeth whitening, so it will need to be refreshed from time to time. We will work closely with you to determine the best schedule for your treatments.

Treating TMJ With Botox
In some cases, Botox is used to treat symptoms of TMJ Disorder. When Botox is injected, it causes partial paralysis of the intended muscle, which allows for immediate relief of TMJ related symptoms. This treatment method is proven to alleviate symptoms such as jaw tension, migraines, headaches due to teeth grinding, and lockjaw.
Botox injections are a nonsurgical, minimally-invasive way to address symptoms of TMJ and can be completed in the comfort of our Tulsa dentist office. Depending on your needs, we may recommend Botox treatment every few months to ensure your results last. Dr. Henrich will perform and oversee all phases of your care to ensure effective, high- quality results.
A full session can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes. The number and location of your injections will depend on the specifics of your case. Dr. Henrich will explain all aspects of your care and answer any questions you may have prior to your appointment. If you are seeking relief for TMJ, headaches, or jaw pain, visit Henrich Dental for a consultation with Dr. Henrich.
