TMD Treatment with Botox and Appliances
If you've been living with persistent jaw pain, ear pain and headaches, you could have TMJ – temporomandibular jaw disorder. TMJ can often be traced back to an improper bite, misaligned jaw joints, or an injury to the jaw or face. TMJ treatment from a dentist can relieve the discomfort. Although TMJ treatment varies from patient to patient, it typically involves one or several procedures, including the use of an orthotic splint, enamel reshaping, dental crowns, dental braces or night guards. The goal of TMJ treatment is to stabilize your bite so that your teeth, jaw muscles and jaw joints work properly together without strain – and without pain!
Botox for Wrinkles
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Botox can also be injected in the forehead and the crow’s feet. Available to people between 18 to 65 years of age, it is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Botox is administered through a few tiny injections in one 10-minute treatment. Within days, you’ll notice improvements, which can last up to four months. To date, more than four million people have been treated with Botox.
Filler Options for Lips
JUVÉDERM® is a gel filler made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. It’s injected into the lips to instantly restore volume. The look and feel is so natural that people will definitely notice, but no one will know! JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective.
Another filler is called Restylane. A safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler, it restores volume and fullness to the skin as a means to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It’s also effective in giving your lips a more youthful look. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Results are instantaneous and last about 6 months.
While some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive “Gummy Smile." This phenomenon could be due to several factors. One of the reasons is hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip. Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more. While for most people smiling is an expression of happiness, individuals whose gums stand out more than their smile does often feel self-conscious. Very often those with gummy smiles try to control and minimize their smile and some feel so self-conscious that they prefer not to smile at all. This may have a detrimental effect on one's professional, social, and personal relationships. Thankfully, gummy smile reduction is now possible, simple and effective. Utilizing a non-surgical approach by injecting small amounts of Botox® into the hyperactive muscle of the upper lip, Dr. Ealy will give you a smile that is natural and carefree. This simple procedure will weaken the hyperactive muscles and reduce the elevation of your upper lip, thereby reducing your gummy smile. If a thin upper lip is a contributing factor, Dr. Ealy may suggest concomitant upper lip augmentation with FDA approved fillers such as Restalayne or Juvederm.
