See if Facial Rejuvenation in Pinecrest is Right for You

Though dental injectables are known as a treatment for wrinkles, they also serve a variety of other medically therapeutic purposes. Since dental injectables are minimally invasive, use is expanding to treat a range of dental conditions like Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), high lip lines, and ill-fitting dentures due to shifting jaw muscles, and more. It can also help treat a condition called Bruxism in which you clench, grind, or gnash your teeth leading to headaches, jaw disorders, tooth damage, and other problems.

A Not-So-Secret Treatment Option!

Over the years, injectables have been given a bad reputation due to misinformation regarding their permanence, how quickly it takes effect, how it impacts the movement of your face, and more. Injectables are no longer considered to be taboo, and with the skilled oral health specialists at University Dental Group they can be used to rejuvenate the face and treat jaw pain caused by TMJ.

Benefits for TMJ

Dental injectables are used as an alternative treatment for jaw tension and pain caused by TMJ. TMJ issues can have an impact on everyday functions such as eating, talking, and swallowing. To relieve pain and discomfort, it’s injected into the facial muscles and can often eliminate headaches as a result of teeth grinding and potentially minimize the impacts of lockjaw. This non-surgical form of TMJ treatment is generally quick, straightforward, and effective and does not require a stay at the hospital. Though it may take up to a week to notice improvements, most patients begin to feel relief within a few days of their first treatment.

Benefits for Wrinkles/Facial Rejuvenation

Though wrinkles can occur as a result of cellular changes, collagen reduction, or sun damage, a combination of other factors can also lead to facial lines. Frowning, raising the eyebrows, or squinting contract your face muscles causing the skin to furrow. This gradually leads to the formation of facial lines. Injectables, which are the most frequently performed cosmetic procedure in the United States, work beneath the surface of the skin to temporarily reduce the muscle activity causing crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. This results in making facial lines visibly smoother and improving the overall look of your skin.
