BOTOX® & Fillers

BOTOX® and fillers have gained popularity in the field of periodontics for their versatile applications in enhancing both esthetics and functionality. While traditionally associated with cosmetic dermatology, these minimally invasive treatments have found their place in periodontal practices, offering innovative solutions for various oral and facial concerns.

BOTOX, derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, is commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. In periodontics, BOTOX can be employed as an adjunctive therapy for the management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and to alleviate symptoms associated with bruxism. By relaxing the muscles responsible for jaw tension, BOTOX can provide relief for patients experiencing pain and discomfort related to these conditions.

Fillers, on the other hand, are substances injected beneath the skin to add volume and restore a smoother, more youthful appearance. In periodontal applications, fillers can be utilized to address facial asymmetry resulting from bone loss or other periodontal issues. Additionally, they may be used to enhance the contour of the gingiva, contributing to a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
