When thinking of Botox, you might not immediately assume you can get it at the dentist’s office, but it’s actually a very common service many dental health professionals offer!

But, you likely have a lot of questions about the procedure and how it works. Check out this blog post from Nashoba Valley Dental to know what to expect when getting Botox for the first time.
Botox is not a substance but the name of a neurotoxic protein called "bacterium clostridium botulinum." The basic principle with Botox is that it can weaken the underlying muscle of the injection spot temporarily, which helps reduce those lines caused by facial movements such as frowning or smiling.
Though Botox is mostly used to address cosmetic issues, the procedure has some medical uses as well, such as reducing jaw pain, reducing teeth grinding, migraines, or even a reduction of sweating.
With so many different applications, it’s no wonder Botox is such a popular procedure.
