Restore A More Youthful Look And Feel With A Certified Cosmetic Dentist In New Jersey, Dr. Valerie Barba

A dentist qualified in administering Botox can treat patients for both medical and cosmetic concerns. Valerie Barba, DDS, FAGD is your local dentist in Manasquan, NJ who is certified in facial rejuvenation procedures, including Botox. Dr. Barba’s goal is to, “help everyone to not only be the healthiest version of themselves but to also look and feel their very best”. Botox is commonly used as a cosmetic treatment to improve the look of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. A patient can also receive Botox at the dentist to treat a variety of dental conditions like a gummy smile, adjusting to new dentures, and TMD.


Facial Rejuvenation

Botox works by temporarily reducing muscle activity, or relaxing facial muscles, to eliminate the look of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. There are countless areas of concern that Botox treatment can address. The most common are forehead lines, crows feet lines and frown lines. If you are questioning “Is it safe to get Botox at the dentist?”, the answer is yes. Because a dentist is highly trained in the structure of the face, they are considered to be some of the most trusted medical professionals to administer Botox. Once a patient has a healthy smile, Dr. Barba believes facial rejuvenation is a great addition because it integrates well with looking and feeling your best.

Gummy Smile

The display of excessive gum tissue while smiling is often referred to as a gummy smile. This can make patients feel unhappy with their smile due to the appearance of their teeth and gums. There are many factors that contribute to a gummy smile, one of which is having hyperactive upper lip muscles. As an alternative to surgery, Botox is a non-invasive treatment used to relax the lip muscles to prevent over contraction while smiling. The resulting lower lip line can help patients restore their confidence. If you hesitate when you smile, schedule an appointment at our Manasquan dental spa to learn more.


Adjusting To New Dentures

Some patients, especially full denture wearers, may experience minor pain or discomfort while adjusting to new dentures. Beginning to wear dentures is a significant change to the mouth structure and can result in facial muscle pain. This discomfort can also lead to dentures no longer fitting properly in the mouth. Botox is a non-invasive treatment that relaxes these muscles to help alleviate pain and better accommodate dentures. If you have pain or discomfort from your dentures, speak with Dr. Valerie Barba about how Botox can help.


Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD)

Symptoms of TMD include pain in the jaw area, frequent headaches or neck aches, clicking or popping sounds when the jaw moves, and swelling on the sides of the face. While there are invasive treatment options available, Botox is the non-invasive treatment that can help relieve discomfort by temporarily relaxing muscle tension around the mouth and jaw. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of TMD, speak with Dr. Valerie Barba about a personalized Botox treatment plan.
