Why Botox® at the dentist?

A cosmetic treatment, doctors traditionally administer Botox in a medical spa. However, you can get Botox from a dentist. The training and certification for administering Botox focuses on knowledge of the muscles of the face, head, and neck.

Dr. Chambers is Botox certified. It also helps that she already has in-depth knowledge of how the muscles, ligaments, and other tissues function and interact. This gives her a unique understanding of how Botox will affect your muscles and where to place injections for best results.

Another key benefit of Botox in our Lexington, KY dental office is having Dr. Chambers monitor your results. She will monitor the appearance of your skin when you visit for routine dental care. Semi-annual dental care visits are the perfect time to touch up with Botox and maintain your aesthetic goals for your skin.

Botox and TMJ

Doctors commonly use Botox injections to treat temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). When you develop a TMJ disorder, you experience facial pain that radiates throughout the upper body. TMJ dysfunction can create headaches, toothaches, and jaw pain.

Botox relaxes the muscles in the jaw to alleviate pain and discomfort. Dr. Chambers can inject Botox directly into the affected muscles. Botox blocks nerve signals that cause muscle contractions.

Patients may experience relief from TMJ symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and difficulty chewing within a few days of treatment.  Botox for TMJ is a minimally invasive treatment option. It offers a great addition to our TMJ treatments.

Multiple steps go into Botox treatment at Complete Dentistry for All Ages:


Before treatment, you will visit Dr. Chambers for a consultation. You will discuss your skin or TMJ concerns and treatment goals. If you have certain areas of your face that you want treated, Dr. Chambers will note these areas. 

Dr. Chambers will not recommend Botox if you are pregnant or nursing. She will also not recommend treatment if you have muscle, nerve, or blood disorders. Before Botox treatment, Please inform Dr. Chamber of your current medications, medical conditions, and allergies. 


Before Botox treatment, we recommend that you avoid:

  • Blood thinners such as aspirin or ibuprofen
  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco products
  • Rigorous exercise or excess sweating
  • Caffeine
  • Tanning
  • Retinol or harsh skincare ingredients
  • Facials

If you do not follow pre-treatment instructions, you may be at an increased risk of swelling or bruising after your injections. 

Botox Treatment

Before Dr. Chambers places the injections, she will apply a numbing cream to your face. This cream ensures you will not feel pain during your Botox treatment. Then, Dr. Chambers will place strategic injections in the muscles. It takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete treatment in just one office visit.

  • Touch or rub the treated area
  • Put pressure on your face (avoid putting your face on a pillow when you lay down)
  • Avoid tobacco products and alcohol for 24 hours
  • Avoid vigorous exercise and strenuous activities for the next 24 hours

Instead, you should:

  • Stay upright for at least four hours after the treatment to allow the solution to settle properly

  • Gently wash your face and avoid harsh skincare products
  • Stay out of direct sunlight and use SPF when outside

Botox® FAQs

Botox is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin and make you look younger. Many people want to learn more about Botox, its benefits, and potential risks. Here, we will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about Botox to help you make an informed decision before you get treatment.

Am I a candidate for Botox?

Most patients are candidates for Botox injections. However, Dr. Chambers will meet with you first to evaluate your skin condition and discuss your cosmetic goals. We want your results to meet expectations and provide a safe and effective outcome.

Botox primarily treats moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Doctors can also use it for medical purposes to treat excessive sweating and muscle spasms.

Discuss your goals with our dentist or healthcare provider to determine if Botox is right for you. We will assess your condition and advise on whether or not this treatment is suitable for you.

Are Botox injections painful?

Many people have valid concerns about the pain associated with Botox injections. The good news is that Botox injections are relatively painless. Most patients report only minor discomfort during the procedure.

In addition, we offer several ways to minimize discomfort. We will apply a topical anesthetic or numbing cream to minimize your discomfort. You can also take an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment.

With proper preparation and technique, our Botox injections are virtually painless. For a day or two after treatment, you may notice mild redness or swelling at the site. However, you can use a cold compress or pain medication.

How many injections of Botox will I need?

The number of Botox injections we place during your treatment will depend on the treatment area and your goals. The number of injections you receive will also depend on your individual needs to achieve your desired results. Dr. Chambers will provide details on how many injections, the cost, and what to expect at your initial consultation.
