With time, these moments of expression can eventually cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear, which are associated with aging. Dr. Julie Cromer offers a simple, yet effective solution to rejuvenating your appearance, and that’s BOTOX. Call Cromer & Cairns Dental today to schedule an appointment and learn more.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX is the brand name of a cosmetic injection that contains diluted botulinum toxin, which is a bacteria that’s FDA-approved to help improve the appearance of facial lines. When the muscles beneath the skin become overworked as they’re used for decades on end, it’ll cause them to bunch-up, revealing wrinkles on the skin. BOTOX can be injected into these stressed muscles to help them smooth out, minimizing the appearance of facial lines.

Depending on how many areas of the face you want to address and the depth of the wrinkles, Dr. Cromer may recommend anywhere from one to 20 injections. Regardless of how many injections you receive, we’ll be able to complete your treatment within an hour, allowing you to get back on with the rest of your day.

Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX?

BOTOX isn’t typically recommended for patients who have certain allergies, are pregnant, or have a neuromuscular condition. We often recommend this aesthetic treatment for those looking to address the following cosmetic flaws:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Smoker’s lines around the mouth
  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Lines at the corners of the mouth

The Benefits of BOTOX

BOTOX offers a variety of benefits that you’ll be able to enjoy, such as:

  • Subtle, Enhancing Effects: Many people looking into getting BOTOX for the first time often worry that after treatment, it’ll look like they’ve had “work done.” However, when injections are delivered by a trained and experienced professional like Dr. Cromer, they’ll offer subtle results that enhance your natural features.
  • Non-Invasive Cosmetic Treatment: BOTOX requires virtually no recovery time and takes less than an hour to complete.
  • Lasting Results: Results from BOTOX injections can last between three and six months.
  • Cost-Effective: BOTOX is a cost-effective treatment that offers similar results as those with high price tags, like facelifts.


Will Dentures Change the Shape of My Face?

Yes – dentures will change the shape of your face. That said, this shift has positive results. It’ll help you look younger and more vibrant.


You see, losing teeth affects more than your smile. It also causes your facial muscles to sag, leading to wrinkly and saggy skin. This latter effect makes your face look sunken over time. However, dentures will prevent and reverse such collapse. They’ll support your facial muscles and thus improve your appearance. By using them, your face should seem firmer, fuller, and more youthful.


Will It Hurt to Get Dentures?

In most cases, getting dentures involves little or no pain. Dentists strive to ensure treatment goes as smoothly as possible. So, there shouldn’t be any major discomfort.


Of course, things change if you undergo tooth extraction first. Your mouth will likely feel sore after this oral surgery. Still, any aches should improve in a few days. You can also manage them with prescribed pain medication.


At the same time, you may face some irritation when you first wear dentures. Your new appliance will feel unfamiliar and may cause slight pain. Luckily, this effect is also temporary and fades quickly.


Do Upper Dentures Always Cover the Palate?

Many upper dentures feature a plate that covers the palate. Even so, this plate isn’t a vital part of these restorations. Patients can opt for “palateless” dentures – ones that don’t cover the roof of your mouth.


Indeed, some folks don’t like dentures that cover the palate. This coverage can interfere with a patient’s ability to taste food. What should be a flavorful meal then becomes tasteless and bland. With the palate’s taste buds covered, you can’t sense as much from your food.


Given these facts, many dentists offer “palateless” upper dentures. These kinds don’t have plates that cover the upper palate. Instead, they can use a conventional horseshoe-shaped structure or take the form of implant dentures.


Is It Hard to Talk with Dentures?

Initially, it can be hard to talk with dentures. Most patients need to get used to speaking with artificial teeth. On the bright side, it becomes easier to talk with them over time.


Usually, the time it takes to speak clearly with dentures varies. Some patients take longer to adjust than others. However, the adjustment process does go more quickly when you practice more. Examples of such practices include reading aloud, speaking slowly, using denture adhesive before you talk, etc. These habits help you learn to speak clearly sooner.
