Botox is a medicine that’s derived from the botulinum toxin. When it’s injected into the proper areas of your face, it paralyzes some of your small facial muscles. This, in turn, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles and helps you look younger. In dentistry, Botox therapy is also sometimes used for the treatment of conditions like TMJ/TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).
Dermal fillers, or just “fillers” for short, are often done alongside Botox, and are usually injected into the cheeks, lips, or other areas of the face. They plump up your skin and your face, providing you with a more youthful look. Together, Botox and fillers can help you look and feel your best in Miami and Pembroke Pines.

Botox and fillers can often be done as part of your routine six-month checkup at Amaya Dental, which makes it easier for you to look and feel your best.
First, you’ll come into Amaya Dental and meet with your dentist at our Pembroke Pines or Miami dental office. Together, you can discuss your cosmetic goals, or other issues that may need treatment with Botox, such as TMJ/TMD. Together, you can decide if Botox or dermal fillers are right for you.
Botox treatment takes only a few minutes. Your dentist will clean your skin and apply a numbing cream to ensure that you feel no discomfort. Then, they will inject a small amount of Botox into the proper areas of your face and jaw, based on your treatment plan. It only takes about 15 minutes to get Botox in Miami or Pembroke Pines at our office. As experts in facial anatomy, the dentists at Amaya Dental can provide you with excellent results.
Filler treatment is similar to Botox. Your dentist will clean and prepare your face, and then inject a small amount of dermal filler into each area that’s being treated. Depending on how many areas you’re treating, your appointment may take up to an hour.
Usually, Botox usually must be reapplied every 3-6 months for the best results. Dermal fillers usually last longer, with patients requiring further treatment every 12 months. The team at Amaya Dental will work with you to schedule follow-ups and provide the care you need to always look your best.
Botox and fillers can both help smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and creases in your face. This helps eliminate signs of aging, providing you with a more youthful look and appearance. You can choose one treatment or the other, but many patients get Botox and fillers together for the best results.
Over time, decreased collagen production can make your lips and cheeks look thin, sometimes leading to an older or “sunken” appearance. With dermal fillers, you can add volume back to your lips and cheeks, which provides you with a more plump, youthful appearance.
Botox isn’t just for looks. If you have temporomandibular joint disorder, Botox may be a viable treatment option. When injected into the jaw, Botox helps the jaw muscles relax. Along with lifestyle changes and other treatments, this helps provide relief from pain and the other symptoms of TMJ/TMD.
Not only can your veneers correct tooth damage, discoloration, and orthodontic problems but they can also be used to entirely change your smile aesthetic. If you prefer that your teeth were a different size or shape, we can help you achieve that.
