Having a smile you love is important to your confidence level. However, for a true smile makeover, you may want to consider improving the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles surrounding your mouth. Luckily, your Wheat Ridge, CO dentist can help you accomplish just that with Botox. Learn more about Botox treatments with Dr. John A. Wyatt, DDS.
What is Botox?
Doctors use Botox to treat cosmetic problems like unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Botox freezes the muscles which lie underneath the skin, preventing their movement. This relaxes the skin, smoothing the appearance of the wrinkles which sit on its surface. Additionally, the muscles’ restricted movement prevents new wrinkles from forming. Botox is recommended for healthy adults over the age of 18 who do not have a history of neuromuscular diseases.
What can Botox do for me?
Botox can achieve many things including improving the appearance of:
- frown lines
- wrinkles between the eyebrows
- fine lines
- lines around or at the corners of the mouth
Botox is not the same as a dermal filler, which fills in drooping or sunken facial features. Botox serves several medical purposes, including treating excessive sweating, eye spasms, and migraine headaches. Using Botox alongside cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening or veneers can truly overhaul your smile to make you look and feel great. Dr. Wyatt can help you determine if Botox and other cosmetic dental treatments are best for you.

Available during your regular dental examination and cleaning, Botox can give your smile the boost it needs. Treatment does not require any anesthetic and only takes about 15 minutes. Dr. Wyatt injects Botox into the facial skin using a super-fine needle and targets problem areas. While you may see partial results immediately, most patients notice the full effect of Botox after about a week. Results last up to six months, making your bi-annual dental examinations the perfect time to renew your Botox treatments.
