At Quince Orchard Dental Care, our Cosmetic Dentistry practice is centered around the enhancement of our patients’ smiles. Our practice is a complete health practice, which means that while our specialty is oral health, we consider your overall health in everything we do. In the area of Cosmetic Dentistry we take particular care to focus also on the artistry that can be brought to bear for our patients. In our cosmetic dentistry practice, function and form coexist happily in our provision of botox injections.
Botox is not just a fancy treatment used to smooth wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes. Our specially trained team of dentists also use it to treat dental health issues like TMJ and Bruxism (teeth grinding).
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is pain in the jaw joint that can be caused by a variety of medical problems. TMD symptoms are treated with BoNT-A (Botox) using trigger point injections due to its effectiveness over periods of up to three months. Botox helps to relieve the intensity of the contraction of the muscle which is usually in spasm, causing pain and discomfort. Botox can also be applied to facial muscles of expression and mastication to provide relief.
Bruxism also known as tooth grinding, is the medical term for clenching or grinding teeth. 25 million Americans unconsciously grind their teeth and/or clench their jaw, either while awake or during sleep. BoNT-A products which treat TMD symptoms, directly remove the bruxism element of cases of TMD and periodontal disease. This helps to eliminate facial pain and reduce symptoms overall. Botox is also used in esthetic dentistry cases as an alternative to surgically treating high lip line cases, denture patients who find new dentures a difficult adjustment and orthodontic cases where retraining of the facial muscle is necessary.
At Quince Orchard Dental Care, cosmetic dentistry is an art form. Our office offers dentists with a wide range of specialities all under one roof making it very easy for patients to get many times what they are looking for in a single visit to a single office. We use the latest in technology to make our patients comfortable, for example, at our office we can use a digital scanner to create impressions for patients with strong gag reflexes or who are unable to fully open their mouth.
At Quince Orchard Dental Care, we strive to ensure that a visit with one of our cosmetic dentists exceeds your expectations. We provide attentive consultations that allow for us to delve a little deeper and provide education about the latest and greatest cosmetic procedures. We invite you to come in and take advantage of our experienced team of cosmetic dentists.
