About Botox

Botox, derived from the deadly toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, has a history that transformed from poison to a cosmetic sensation.

In the 19th century, its toxic properties were discovered, but it wasn't until the late 20th century that its potential for medical use was explored. Dr. Alan B. Scott's research in the 1970s led to the first FDA-approved application in 1989 for treating strabismus.

The breakthrough came when dermatologist Dr. Jean Carruthers noticed its cosmetic benefits during eye disorder treatments. In 2002, Botox gained FDA approval for cosmetic use, marking a new era. Its ability to temporarily paralyze muscles quickly made it a go-to solution for wrinkles.

Today, Botox is a household name, symbolizing a journey from a lethal toxin to a trusted cosmetic remedy, highlighting the incredible evolution in medical science



Botox in Full Arch Implant Treatment

1. Prevention of Complications
Botox injections can potentially prevent complications such as muscle spasms or excessive muscle activity during and after the implant osseointegration. Therefore, by reducing the muscle tone, less forces are transmitted to the implant / prosthetic complex, potentially reducing biological and mechanical complications, such as marginal bone loss, temp fractures and mechanical problems.

2. Minimization of Bruxism Symptoms
About 90% of the general population have some kind of oral parafunction. Botox has been used to manage bruxism (teeth grinding) by relaxing the muscles involved. In the context of dental implants, this can contribute to a more stable environment for the implants by reducing the forces exerted on them.

3. Management of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders
Botox can be employed to manage symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorders, including pain and dysfunction. This can enhance the overall comfort and success of dental implant treatments.

4. Reduced Muscular Discomfort

Botox injections can be used to alleviate muscular discomfort and jaw pain associated with dental implant surgeries. This is particularly helpful in cases where patients experience muscle spasms or tension.

5. Aesthetic Enhancements
Beyond its therapeutic applications, Botox can also be used for aesthetic purposes to enhance the appearance of the face by reducing fine lines, wrinkles and the volume of the lower third of the face.

This can be particularly appealing to patients undergoing dental implant procedures who are interested in a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

6. Full Arch Correction without Revision Surgery

Some full arch cases of severe maxillary atrophy still need bone reduction to hide the transition zone on a very high gummy smile patient. 

Botox can help you manage the situation in a more conservative way by limiting the upper lip mobility.
