Why should I get Botox and/or dermal fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers have more benefits than just aesthetics. While aesthetic and cosmetic reasons are just as valid as others, there can be physical and medical benefits to receiving Botox and dermal fillers.


Some benefits of Botox and dermal fillers might include:


  • Relax muscles at the injection site
  • Reduce the formation of some wrinkles and lines
  • Fill creases and folds
  • Create volume in certain areas of the face (ex: your cheeks)
  • Improve tension headaches
  • Treat TMJ and its symptoms

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox and Dermal Fillers

Why is Botox offered by a dentist?

If you’re wondering whether a dentist should be performing this sort of procedure, you’re not alone. Many people believe that Botox is something that is limited to a cosmetic surgeon or specialty practice.


However, many people don’t realize that dentists are highly trained in the anatomy and function of the whole face, not just teeth. The gums, jawbone, temporomandibular joints, and facial tendons are all part of the purview of a dentist.


As a result, you would be hard-pressed to find a professional who is more qualified than a dentist to administer dermal fillers safely and effectively. Koch Aesthetic Dentistry offers a wide variety of aesthetic services outside the typical scope of dentistry.

How does Botox work?

There are two main aspects to a Botox or dermal filler treatment that are instrumental in understanding its benefits.


  • Volume – Over time, our skin loses both collagen and elastin. These two substances are responsible for the fullness and elasticity of the skin. Their gradual loss is the direct cause of most wrinkles and loose skin. Dermal fillers replace that volume.
  • Tension – Botox has a natural effect on the tension of muscles and tendons. It actually restricts the nerve signals that travel back and forth between the muscles and the brain. This allows those muscles to relax dramatically.
What are the benefits of Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers can treat many different conditions. They have been shown to either reduce or eliminate:


  • Pain from temporomandibular disorders
  • Facial wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • The occurrence of chronic migraines
  • The visibility of scarring


All of this results in a fuller, more youthful look and less daily pain in your life.

How does Botox treat TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is a small area on either side of your face where the mandible—or lower jaw—connects to the temple.


It is responsible for an enormous amount of facial movement during speech, eating, or even just forming expressions. As a result, it is particularly susceptible to pain and injury if anything goes amiss. Impact injuries, poorly aligned bites, teeth clenching or grinding, and daily stress can cause many different disorders in the TMJ.


During TMJ treatments, which you can read about on our services page, the TMJ is able to heal with much more comfort and ease when the muscles around the joint are relaxed. Botox is extremely effective for this purpose.

What types of dermal fillers are provided?

We will provide Botox, Juvaderm Ultra, Juvaderm Ultra Plus, Versa, Vollure XC, and Voluma.
