Experienced BOTOX® and Lip Filler Treatment in Roseville

close up of woman with botox lip fillers smilingAlthough many people consider BOTOX for cosmetic concerns like wrinkles in the face, it has been shown to help certain oral health conditions as well. BOTOX is a minimally invasive procedure and shows promising results in managing muscle-generated dental conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and bruxism.  

If your treatment goals are cosmetic, lip fillers present an increasingly popular solution for dental aesthetic issues like deep nasolabial folds, radial lip lines, high lip lines, and black triangles between teeth. Our practice provides BOTOX and lip filler treatments that are comfortable, safe, and effective. If you are looking to manage your TMD or enhance your orofacial aesthetics, the practice of Ronald Rasi, D.D.S., can help you with lip fillers and BOTOX treatments in Roseville.


Lasting Solutions for TMD

Pain relievers and other temporary solutions may reduce the severity of discomfort from TMD, but they are not effective long-term resolutions. If left untreated, the symptoms of TMD can worsen over time. The jaw joint is connected to muscles in both the neck and head, meaning tension carries through the connective tissues. Our BOTOX treatments in Roseville can help provide lasting relief from this discomfort. Dr. Rasi will work with you to find a method of treatment that fits your lifestyle and budget.

How BOTOX Works

The proper health and integrity of this joint are essential because it helps you speak and chew properly. BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles that cause the discomfort associated with TMD, including migraines and tension headaches.

Tight jaws, teeth clenching, and headaches are symptoms of inflamed muscle tissues that control chewing, speaking, and smiling. Treatment for these problems can be simple and can dramatically improve your daily life. With proper diagnosis and a plan, you can restore comfortable jaw movement and relieve TMJ discomfort. BOTOX injections in Roseville can also relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles around the mouth.

What Is the BOTOX Treatment Process?

Our dental professionals are trained in BOTOX therapy for TMD and other orofacial discomfort issues and can safely administer treatment. Our dentist injects a tiny dose of BOTOX into the affected muscle or muscle group using a very thin needle, which most patients barely feel. At the practice of Ronald Rasi, D.D.S., we also use a numbing agent to ensure there’s no discomfort during your treatment.

The length of treatment depends on how many locations need injections. After your appointment, it may take a few days to see the final results of treatment. You may notice some mild redness at the injection sites, which will recede in a day or two.

Will I Need Follow-up Treatment?

The effects of a single BOTOX injection often last around five to six months, so repeat treatments are needed to maintain the pain-relieving results. However, because BOTOX relaxes the muscles and prevents them from causing painful symptoms, it also provides time for the muscles and joint to rest and heal. Some people find that their TMD symptoms subside to a manageable level after one or two rounds of BOTOX treatment.

TMD and Dental Health

When you constantly clench your jaw, especially at night, it puts substantial pressure on your teeth. This strain will eventually wear down your enamel, potentially resulting in chipped or broken teeth. This can lead to extensive and often costly dental restoration treatments. In contrast to repairing fractured teeth, the solution to jaw clenching is simple. 

If you or a loved one are experiencing discomfort brought on by temporomandibular joint disorder, we encourage you to call Dr. Ronald Rasi. He uses advanced technology and equipment to deliver safe, effective, and compassionate TMD relief with BOTOX treatment in Roseville.

Additional Aesthetic Enhancement with Lip Fillers

In addition to BOTOX, our practice offers JUVÉDERM® to restore and improve the look of your smile. JUVÉDERM is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and nose. This treatment can make your lips fuller, soften facial creases, and enhance shallow contours.

We can combine lip fillers with other cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers, fillings, or crowns, for a complete smile solution. We also offer this treatment option as a stand-alone service. Your health and well-being are our top priority during any procedure, and our treatment approach includes numbing the area to help make your experience more comfortable.
