Botox & Fillers At Oak Creek Dental Care
At Oak Creek Dental Care, Dr. Saleki specializes in cosmetic dentistry. We offer a wide range of cosmetic services to improve the appearance of your smile, including Botox and facial fillers. As an experienced dentist, Dr. Saleki has a deep understanding of facial muscles, and this makes him a great choice for this popular cosmetic treatment.
Facial Rejuvenation And Restoration
Botox is a product derived from the botulinum toxin. It can selectively paralyze some of the muscles of the face, resulting in the smoothing of wrinkles, fine lines, and other cosmetic flaws and imperfections. With results that typically last 3-6 months or longer, Botox is a great way to restore and rejuvenate your face in Oak Creek, particularly when combined with facial fillers.
Facial fillers vary somewhat in their composition, but most are composed of hyaluronic acid or natural collagen-based materials, which are injected directly into any area of the face to provide extra depth. They also help reduce the appearance of scarring and other imperfections, and can enhance the shape and size of the lips.
Botox And Facial Fillers: Are They Safe?
Yes! Botox is an FDA approved treatment, and when it is properly applied, side effects are extremely rare, and are typically limited to minor symptoms like facial tingling or numbness. Facial fillers are also safe, as they are derived from natural ingredients that are eventually absorbed by the underlying skin and tissue.

Does Botox At The Dentist Hurt?
We have to administer Botox with small needles, so it may be uncomfortable but the pain is not significant. Many people who receive Botox injections describe the feeling as like a mosquito bite or a sting. However, we will take precautions to reduce the pain and make you as comfortable as possible. This can involve using ice packs and anesthetic cream to numb the area before inserting the needle. Any discomfort is minimal and does not last for very long.
Am I A Good Candidate For Botox?
A good candidate for Botox would be someone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile, minimize facial lines, or get relief from TMJ, teeth grinding, and tension headaches. You must be in good overall health and should consider if you’re at an appropriate age to be receiving this treatment.
It is recommended for those who are younger than 50 to receive the best results and it is not FDA-approved for those who are 65 years or older. However, you may also be too young for Botox. For example, at 18 years old, you are not likely to have the type of wrinkles that Botox corrects - that is, dynamic wrinkles that appear from facial movements.
Another factor is the type of wrinkles you have. As previously stated, Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles, but if your wrinkles are static (present when your face is still) then you may not get the results you’re looking for with this treatment.
If you are opting for Botox to treat pain from TMJ and teeth grinding, you should consider trying other alternatives first, like an occlusal mouthguard. Botox is only a temporary fix, so you will need to have it regularly re-administered.
How Long Does Botox Last?
This depends on a variety of factors, such as age, dosage, individual differences in muscle activity, lifestyle, skin elasticity, and the location that it is injected. However, with repeated use, your Botox treatments may last longer and not require as many new injections.
Botox is a temporary treatment that lasts for an average of 3-6 months. The neurotoxin eventually wears off, requiring new injections to create the same effects. It also depends if you’re a first-time or repeat user.
Many patients report that their first time receiving Botox did not last nearly as long as when they went back the second time. The mechanism behind this is the shortening of the muscles due to the Botox freezing them and preventing their contraction. When the muscles are continually not being used, this causes them to shrink and causes the Botox effects to last longer.
To extend the lifespan of your Botox, you should limit your sun exposure, reduce the frequency of intense workouts, manage your stress levels, and make sure you don’t touch your face for the first 24-48 hours after injection which can spread the neurotoxin unevenly.
