Botox in Sarasota FL

DR. KAYA AYGEN IS VERY PLEASED TO OFFER BOTOX® INJECTION THERAPY FOR PATIENTS THAT EXPERIENCE TMJ/TMD MUSCULAR PROBLEMS

HOW DOES BOTOX® TREATMENT WORK?

Botox® treatment involves an injection of botulinum toxin into the clenching jaw muscles that help prevent muscle contraction by attaching to the nerve endings of muscles. It only takes a few minutes to feel the effects for months. You can still function fully, just without the pain. Once we gather important health information, we will determine if Botox® will be an effective treatment option for you. If it is, we will then go over the process itself and schedule an appointment for the procedure. After the procedure, the patient will begin to see improvement in 7 to 14 days.

HOW LONG DOES A PROCEDURE TAKE?

We will normally schedule about 30 minutes as we take the time to answer any questions before we start. At Sarasota Dental Arts, we like to make all of our patients comfortable with offering blankets, pillows, noise canceling headphones with the music of your choice and aromatherapy.

WHAT IS THE COST?

We will determine the cost of the procedure after we go over the type of procedure and all of the necessary steps. Typically, we charge a flat fee per treatment.

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Contrary to popular belief, a Botox® procedure is not painful and you will be able to remain calm during the procedure. While the idea of needles near one’s face is not the best mental image, we can ensure that it is not as bad as some might believe. We will use a thin needle and inject small amounts at each site. We can complete this procedure fairly quickly and with little to no pain. The patient will also be able to return to work or other tasks of daily life right after the procedure.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR RECOVERY TIME AFTER THE TREATMENT?

You will be able to return to your daily activities directly following the procedure. It is important to avoid rubbing or massaging the areas we treat with Botox® since it will cause the toxin to move toward another area of the body. You can also call us if there are any other odd health issues you begin to notice following the procedure.

WHEN WILL I BEGIN TO NOTICE THE RESULTS?

The results can take around 7to 14 days to fully take effect. People will not be able to notice that you went through a Botox® treatment, but you will notice your jaw and teeth feeling much better!
