The mission of Dr. Thomas is to provide the highest quality dental care available for residents of Smyrna, Vinings, and neighboring communities in Atlanta. He is proud to now also provide Botox treatment to enhance the appearance of your skin to better compliment your smile. Having a great smile involves more than just your teeth, and Dr. Thomas of Smile Envy Dental Group is a respected facial expert who offers a personalized Botox plan.
What is Botox?
Dr. Thomas is certified and thoroughly trained to administer treatments with Botox or botulinum toxin. Botox treatment can target lines and wrinkles on your face, softening and minimizing them, leading to skin that is tighter and more youthful in appearance. It may seem unusual for a dentist to perform Botox injections, but dentists actually give more injections that virtually any doctor, making them more qualified to provide injections than even plastic surgeons.
No other health care professional is more skilled and experienced with the facial structure and injecting Botox than a dentist. This is extremely important because the method of delivery for Botox is injections into the face to relax facial muscles responsible for wrinkles.
Botox Therapeutic Use
Dr. Thomas has incorporated Botox treatment into the Smile Envy Dental Group in Atlanta for therapeutic reasons to address a variety of chronic conditions such as bruxism, TMJ, high lip line, and others.
Since Botox functions by relaxing facial soft tissue, it is a highly effective therapy technique to offer relief for a number of difficult dental conditions that can impair movement and function. For example, TMJ — a condition affecting the jaw and neck area — can be alleviated when Dr. Thomas uses Botox injections to reduce pain and tension, including headaches. Another example is bruxism. This condition involves the clenching and grinding of the teeth during sleep.
As an expert in treating the facial area, Dr. Thomas often helps patients with problems such as facial pain and migraines, eye muscle spasms, eye twitching, facial asymmetries, neck pain, oromandibular dystonia (involuntary opening and closing the mouth), masseteric hypertrophy (enlarged masseter muscle), and other conditions related to muscles in and around the face. Dr. Fields may recommend Botox treatment as one component of a general treatment plan to address chronic conditions or as a remedy.
Botox can help you look younger because of its ability to relax temporarily muscles you use involuntarily to form facial wrinkles. Botox also helps with maxillofacial region issues. Dentists such as Dr. Thomas are actually the true experts on facial anatomy, having spent the most time dealing with the origin of your wrinkles, the facial musculature. This depth of knowledge, combined with training in delivering injections, makes Dr. Fields the ideal health care professional to help you develop a complete Botox plan.
How is Botox administered?
Over 10 percent of U.S. dentists offer treatment with Botox for their patients who are concerned about the signs of aging upon their face. The number of dentists offering this treatment is growing because dentists are uniquely suited and experienced in issues involving the facial musculature and delivering injections to this region.
Atlanta area residents can now reap the benefits of a personalized Botox treatment plan with great service, quality care, and affordable pricing from a trusted health care professional. Dr. Fields can make your Botox treatment fast and painless due to his experience in pain management. You can rest assured that your Botox treatment will give you the effective and long-lasting results you desire.
How much does Botox cost?
Because treatment with Botox is normally considered to be an elective procedure, most insurance companies do not cover it. However, because Dr. Thomas charges for the treatment rather than the injection, the cost of your treatment at Smile Envy Dental Group may be less expensive than that of a plastic surgeon.
