Gummy Smile Correction & TMJ Relief
Gummy Smile Correction
Your smile is the first thing people see. Many people suffer from gummy smile, where they have excessive exposure of their gums when they smile. Gummy smiles occur for a variety of reasons, most commonly a short upper lip, excessive gum tissue or small teeth, all of which are genetic. Typically, anything over three to four millimeters of gum showing can look “gummy”. Botox® is a minimally invasive alternative to a gingivectomy, which will soften your smile and reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. Perfect your smile with just a few injections by our nurse, an expert in gummy smile injections. Your results can last up to 4 months and will be noticeable within 72 hours of your injection.
Botox® injections are not only for the correction of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles Botox® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, Botox® can even minimize lock jaw.
